New York City is America’s most populated city. It’s composed of five boroughs, with Manhattan being its core. It’s one of the world’s financial and cultural centres with a myriad of famous attractions including the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, the Empire State Building, and a wide range of museums. And being such a large metropolis, it’s a great spot to visit if you’re gluten-free. We’ve compiled a list of our favourite restaurants with gluten-free options to help you figure out the best place to have a healthy meal when you’re in New York. So, keep on reading to explore the list.
