The Best GF Options on Long Island!

Original Post from GlutenFreeLongIsland.blogspot.com on Monday, December 31, 2007:

I keep trying to find more and more places to eat out, shop, and buy GF products at. Here are some old ones, as well as a few new on the list... most notably Jani's in Oceanside, and new to me, The Diet Shop in Ronkokoma, for shopping as well as Carrabas in Smithtown!
If you have any others let me know and I will post!

GF Resturants:
MAMAS in Oakdale (631) 567-0909 (there are 2 Mamas in Oakdale, this is the number to the gluten-free one!), CAFE BALDO in Wantagh, Carrabas in Smithtown (and I believe Lindenhurst? or somewhere else on the Island), Outback, Chilis... PF Changs in Westbury. I have also had luck at Grand Luxe Cafe in the Roosevelt Field Mall (I got an omlet and salad, but the wait staff was extremely helpful). Chipotle Grill has gluten-free listing- it's GREAT!! there is one just opposite the Nassau Coliseum (by Hofstra), and one by the Broadway Mall on Rt. 107. I also *risk* panara's salad in a pinch. Pizzeria Uno also has a gluten-free menu, I have gone to the one in Lynbrook, and have been OK. Also, Charlie Browns in Lynbrook, Commack, Mineola has a gluten-free menu. I have eaten at Laguna Grill in Westbury and Locust Valley, and was able to get a steak salad (no seasoning), and they were very accommodating.I have also heard good things about Long River Chinese in West Islip on Union Blvd, Oystermen’s in Sayville on Foster Ave, and Grecian Café on Broadway in Greenlawn.

GF Shopping:
BWell Naturally in Plainview has a LOT of GF stuff, as well as Fairway (down the block), and Get Healthy America all on Manetto Hill Road. Newly opened is Jandi's in Oceanside, and let me say, there was SO much stuff!! I got some things that I never even saw before (they were imported), and FABULOUS GF products. I also like The Diet Shop in Ronkonkoma, they have a lot of GF stuff. Wild By Nature in Huntington, and newly opened in Oceanside. GF Bakeries: Sweet Karma in East Meadow has some GF items available by order, and even some when you walk in. (Joan's GF Great Bakes has her bagels there! YUM). And The Best Ever Low Carb Cakes in Massapequa, has GF cakes by order.Gluten Free Shopping, Resturants, and Bakeries on Long Island, NY
