New Website Aims To Make Gluten-Free Dining Easier In NYC

Standard

Because quizzing the waiter as soon as you look at the menu sucks.

NOBREADNYC.com launched last week as a guide to gluten-free menu items at NYC restaurants.

While other NYC sites list only the gluten-free restaurants, NOBREAD's practice of highlighting gluten-free options at regular restaurants could prove more useful to diners.

Right now, the site includes only 250 of the city's approximately 8,000 sit-down restaurants, and most, but not all, of them are on the $$$$ end of the spectrum. But NOBREAD's founder and CEO Nicole Cogan says she plans to add more affordable restaurants as she expands, hopefully at a pace of at least three per week.

For 150 of the restaurants she has listed so far, Cogan also makes suggestions for how regular items can be made gluten-free with the right substitutions. “That's me going into the restaurant, sitting down with the chef or a manager and going over item-by-item what's gluten-free,” Cogan told BuzzFeed Life.

“Especially now that I've entered the world of not making paychecks, I've seen the importance of those fast casual restaurants,” Cogan said.
