One of the best gluten free places I’ve ever eaten is BareBurger in New York.
Keep in mind that we’d struggled to find somewhere close to the hotel which offered a decent gluten free menu. As those of you with dietary restrictions will know, options are usually limited to a salad or the most unappetising option possible. Once we found this place, it all changed!
The staff were really friendly from the outset and had a great knowledge of what we could and couldn’t eat. They were also really good at making suggestions of what could be changed in the menu to cater for our allergies.
Set in a quirky little venue, the lightshades were made of forks and the decor was quite rustic in style. The menu was mostly organic but always natural, meaning that you can eat guilt free! The best thing about this place? The burgers are huge!!! When they arrived at our table, we worries that we might not finish them all – especially as the chips were also gluten free!
Most gluten free buns are ‘okay’ at best – usually a bit dry, a bit crumbly; but this place has it cracked!
As for cross- contamination, although they use the same kitchen, they do have separate areas for cooking gluten free and vegan options.
BareBurger became the ‘go to’ place for us on our trip.
