The Middle Child and I have just returned from a great adventure in New York City. We loved Broadway and shopping, but we also loved eating!
If you live in New York City and you are gluten free, you should not be hungry!
Of course, we visited one of our favorite gluten free restaurants, Risotteria, 270 Bleecker Street (212) 924 6664.
The neighborhood around Rissoteria looked the same as in did three years ago - a more "normal" neighborhood after being up on 5th Avenue all weekend. The same super market with the fresh fruit outside was next door and the same guitar shop was across the street. We were even seated at the same seats that the Gluten Free Teen and I ate at three years ago.
Barely a slip of a restaurant with minimal seating tucked along the window, we were greeted with fresh from the oven breadsticks! The Middle Child devoured them and ordered more. We ate cheese pizza and lemon and pine nut risotto for me. Stuffed completely once again. We ordered a dozen breadsticks to go (to bring home for the Gluten Free Teen) and a big brownie as a snack for the airplane.
The bread sticks alone made the trip worthwhile.
