NYC gluten free recap

Seeing as I ate my way through New York City the last time I was there – I still had a hodge podge of photos left on my iPhone expensive state-of-the-art special blog camera. So, besides my reviews of Rubirosa, Rice to Riches, and Gramercy Tavern, below are some of the other gluten free yummies I found when I was there.

“Orios” and eclairs at Risotteria in the East Village. Yes. I said gluten free eclairs. I also picked up a “Winkie” for my friend – which I tried a bite of and tastes nearly identical to what I remember a Twinkie to taste like.

The ultimate bar snack – roasted peanuts and garlic with rosemary at the John Dory Oyster Bar

Gluten free cupcakes at Terri

Macaroons at some place I can’t remember. But was happy to see them marked definitively gluten free.

Banana bread with chocolate chips from Babycakes

It always hurts my heart when Celiacs tell me they haven’t been to NYC. It’s a bonafide gluten free playground and every time I go things seem to get more and more delicious.

Good Things Sunday

Some good things from this weekend:

1.  Floating down the Shenandoah River in a tube with a box of wine fun friends.

Complete with some gf traveling snacks in the form propel and coconut water (for hydration), an apple, string cheese, sweet potato chips, and gf pretzel sticks. Oh, and a Larabar, you know, just in case I got lost and needed it for survival.

2.  Awesome friends who bring you gluten free treats for the car ride.  And not just any gf treats, but a super tasty cookie from Hoff & Holmes.  I will be finding them at the Grey DC Market soon, because this cookie was buttery, chewy, and may turn you into a cookie monster.

Me want cookie

3.  The perfect way to start a morning. Coffee, crossword, and some tunes courtesy of Spotify.

Now off to bottomless mimosa brunch at Vinoteca.  Yes, life is good.
