While New York City is world renowned for its culture, fashion, commerce and entertainment, it is also known for its diverse offering of ethnic restaurants. However, if you are looking for a restaurant that caters to a gluten-free diet, the options are not as abundant. Happily, some restaurants in NYC have made changes to accommodate those who follow a gluten-free lifestyle.
Bistango Ristorante is in New York City's Murray Hill neighborhood, an area that is close to many of Midtown Manhattan's attractions. With a bistro atmosphere, Bistango's offers traditional Italian dishes using seasonally fresh ingredients. A few years ago it introduced gluten-free options. The gluten-free dishes are available by request, and include pastas, pizza, bread, desserts and even gluten-free beer. Free delivery is available from Gramercy to Murray Hill.
