Gluten Free at Per Se

Per Se is Thomas Keller's New American restaurant that overlooks New York City's Central Park.  The restaurant opened in 2004 and has three Michelin stars.  I have been meaning to try it out ever since I heard they accommodate a gluten free diet.

This autumn, I was finally able to try out their nine course vegetable tasting menu.  I let them know in advance that I have Celiac Disease and needed the nine courses to be gluten free.  In addition to being gluten free, the courses were vegetarian.  You can let them know about any allergies/intolerances or food preferences in advance. 

On the night I dined, the courses were as followed:

  1. Honeynut Squash "Dumpling"
  2. "Tartelette" of Slow-Roasted Beets
  3. Hawaiian Hearts of Peach Palm "Croquette"
  4. Celery Root "Pastrami" 
  5. "Bread and Butter"
  6. Yukon Gold Potato "Agnolotti" 
  7. Herb Crusted Holland Eggplant
  8. Jasper Hill Farm "Bayley Hazen Blue"
  9. Assortment of Desserts 

Each course had a variety of different flavors.  I was not a huge fan of the eggplant, so they brought me another course that consisted of mushrooms.  The gluten free pasta that they served was delicious as was the gluten free bread.  

The assorted desserts included a cheese and nut plate, pomegranate ice, peanut butter mousse, ice cream, chocolates, candies such as gummy bears, and gluten free donut holes.  They even gave me a small gift bag of gluten free shortbread cookies to take home.

Per Se is located at:
Time Warner Center
10 Columbus Circle, 4th Floor

Hi Everyone!

Although I have not been posting many product reviews recently, I have been updating Instagram with the latest in gluten free dining options. 

If you're making a trip to Miami, I definitely recommend checking out Preston's Brasserie for breakfast.  Their gluten free menu includes muffins, bagels, toast, and pancakes! 

If you're right here in NYC, be sure to check out Yellow Magnolia Cafe at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens.  They have gluten free menu options clearly marked on the menu.  Below is the Daikon Noodle Salad.

If in Manhattan and looking for some delicious Chinese food, stop by Lilli and Loo.  Below is some delicious vegetable fried rice that I tried while dining there.

If out for the weekend on Fire Island, be sure to stop by Sandcastle on the Ocean in Cherry Grove where they have many gluten free options including these fish tacos.

And if you're over on the West coast and looking for a tasty gluten free treat, check out Fonuts for gluten free donuts!

ProBurst Bites!

I was recently sent the new ProBurst Bites from Enjoy Life Foods.  They are available in four delicious flavors:

  • Cinnamon Spice (my favorite!)
  • Mango Habanero
  • Cranberry Orange
  • SunSeed Butter
Each serving size contains 7 grams of plant based protein.  This is the perfect afternoon snack on the go when you want something to satisfy your hunger but don't have much time.  It's also a great alternative to most quick snacks because it's actually nutritious even though it tastes like a chocolate truffle!

  • Peanut
  • Soy
  • Sesame
  • Wheat
  • Tree Nut
  • Shellfish
  • Sulfites

Beyond Sushi!

Beyond Sushi is a vegan sushi place with three locations in NYC.  It is my go to lunch spot for
something light, flavorful and refreshing.

Almost everything on the menu can be made gluten free but make sure to tell them you need your item gluten free.  The black rice they use to make their sushi is gluten free and they also have "to go" packs of gluten free soy sauce.

My favorite roll is the Spicy Mang (pictured).  It contains black rice with avocado, mango, english cucumber, and spicy veggies.

Beyond Sushi has 3 locations:

  • Union Square (229 East 14th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues)
  • Chelsea Market (75 9th Avenue between 15th and 16th Streets)
  • Midtown West (62 West 56th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues)
You will also want to check out their rewards program.  For every $100 you spend, you will receive a $10 reward.

For more information, check out their website at or visit them on Twitter,  Instagram, or Facebook.

Enjoy Life Does It Again!

If you've been following this blog for a while, then you probably know that Enjoy Life is one of my favorite brands.  I love that it is not only gluten free but free of all major allergens and everything I've tried is delicious!

Recently, Enjoy Life sent me their baking mixes to try out.  My first thought was I'm not going to have time to scramble around finding ingredients to make these items.  But then I noticed that with all of the mixes you just need to add water and oil.  What could be easier than that?!

So far, I've tried the Muffin Mix.  Now, I could have made them plain but, as always, I have Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips lying around so I made chocolate chip muffins (see photograph).  They were amazing!  I'm looking forward to trying out the other baking mixes which include:
  • Pizza Crust Mix
  • Pancake & Waffle Mix
  • Brownie Mix
  • All-Purpose Flour
These baking mixes contain 5 grams of protein per serving and were developed with probiotics!  They are also all made with ancient grains including teff, buckwheat, millet and quinoa.  And as always, they are free from the top 8 allergens, certified gluten free, vegan and kosher.
