Eating Out

Eating out when you are on GF diet is a challenge but while visiting NYC for a few months I have been able to explore some really amazing restaurants in Hell's Kitchen.
For example Bar Bacon on 9th Avenue between 54th and 55th street. Most of the items on the menu can be made gluten free and the dash of bacon on the meal made it extra yummy. You can order any burger or salad and make it gluten free. They have gluten free buns available and the meat patty is fresh and juicy.  The down side is you can't have any of the sides because they are all covered in flour before being deeped fried. On the other hand the ambiance and service of the the place is fun, loud and entertaining. We had a great time!
If your looking for a more quiet romantic setting I suggest Bocca di Bacco it is next door to Bar Bacon on 9th Ave.  They have gluten free pasta available with any sauce on the menu. It was more expensive than any other pasta meal I've had in the city but it was delicious. The service was good and very considerate of my GF diet. It is a good place to go on a date night.

I just love a eating out in NYC Hell's Kitchen!

Y te cambio la vida...

"Your life can change in a second", we always hear people say that right?  But for some reason I thought that for me it would be with some huge incident. Perhaps a POW and BANG that would cause shock. I never imagined life would change so much when the doctor told me to stop eating Gluten. I feel I need to capitalized the word as if it were a person that will be in my life forever and yet I need to avoid everyday. I didn't really understand the diagnosis or instructions at first but its been a year since then and now I am a gluten free chica. I have a lot to say about this gluten free life and I have a few tips and tricks I have learned along the way.
