The reviews have been tallied, and the results are in...New York is the winner of GlutenFreeTravelSite's first annual contest to find the World's Most Celiac-Friendly Destination. If you're lucky enough to live there, you're probably familiar with the numerous restaurants adding gluten-free options to their menus and grocery stores adding gluten-free items to their shelves. This is a great place to live if you have Celiac Disease...awareness is good, and restaurants are eager to stay relevant by catering to the fast-growing group of diagnosed Celiacs lobbying for more dining options. You have your pick of many regional and national chains with gluten-free menus, as well as numerous independent neighborhood restaurants throughout the state...some with gluten-free menus and others willing to tailor just about anything on their menu,within reason. Many of these independent restaurant owners began offering gluten-free items on their menu when they, a family member, or a friend was diagnosed with Celiac.
