    I recently dined at Carlo’s gourmet pizza in Marlboro, NJ and had a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly and knowledgable. Although they are not strictly gluten free, they have special procedures in place that prevent cross contamination. Sal, one of the owners, actually gave me a tour of the kitchen and showed me the designated area where they prepare the gluten free pizza and the color coded pots, pans, cutting boards and utensils. I enjoyed the delicious pizza and chicken parmigiana with rice pasta, but most importantly, I enjoyed the fact that the staff goes out of their way to make their celiac customers feel comfortable.

    I had to leave a comment about Millers Gluten Free Bakery in Rochelle Park. I stopped by there today to check it out. I did not realize I had to pre-order so when I got there my choices were pretty limited but what I was able to get was FANTASTIC! I purchased a bag of the garlic knot- 6 in a bag. Three of them were gone before I got out of the parking lot. They are just like the evil gluten full knots- if not better. They were chewy on the inside with a nice crunch on the outside and did not have that funky after taste that alot of gluten free products have. I also bought a container of croutons-had to dive into those too- quite tasty. Can not wait to have a big salad with actual croutons again. I am very eager to pick up my order on Friday. If the sandwich bread is anything like the garlic knots I am in for a treat! This place is worth the trip!

    I’ve been thinking for a while about doing a special dinner with some celiac guests (and joining them) to talk and eat and discuss the ways we can improve GF dining in South Jersey. It’s a learning experience for me and if you are interested in joining me, please email me at info@tortillapresscantina.com. I’m tentatively thinking about scheduling it for 1/19. Dinners on me – and I’m all ears when it comes to feedback and comments.

    I was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease after suffering with digestive problems for years. Since then, I have spent countless hours on the internet trying to find places where I can eat and not have to worry. I stumbled upon a restaurant called Carlo’s Gourmet Pizza. They are located in Marlboro/Englishtown NJ on Union Hill Road and Rt 9 North. They truly were the answer to my prayers. They have a pretty extensive gluten free menu with many options for someone like me. What I liked most was how knowledgeable they were when I presented countless questions about the preparation of their dishes. They did not sit there and yes me to death. They took the time to thoroughly answer all of my questions and they made me feel very comfortable. Their gluten free fried calamari was out of this world. I still can’t believe that its gluten free. For my main course I had the eggplant rollentine which was increddible. If anyone is looking for a restaurant that offers a gluten free menu, and that goes the extra mile to make you comfortable and provide a pleasurable dining experience, Carlo’s Gourmet Pizza is definately the undiscovered secret that you have been searching for. Their phone number is 732-536-6070 and their website is http://www.carlosgourmetpizza.com Give them a shot, you will be so happy you did. They also have a full line of gluten free desserts and cookies for purchase. I have a bit of a sweet tooth, so this was music to my ears.

    I found a new G-Free pizza resaurant in Brick, NJ. It’s called Belzano
    and it’s on Route 70. They just opened this week and they have a separate G-Free menu with pizza and pasta, all G-Free. NOTE: I have confirmed that Balzano’s two New Jersey locations have posted gluten free menus on-line. I will add these listings to my “Gluten Free Pizza Restaurants” power page. Yhanks for the contribution. Paul, the gluten free guy

    We had a great gluten free meal at Bangkok Kitchen on Bloomfield Ave. in Caldwell. They publish their Gluten free menu on the web. Take it with you and order from it. To support our daughter who has celiac, we all ordered from the gluten-free menu. This was the first time my daughter had had Pad Cee Eew since she was diagnosed, and she was in 7th heaven. Thank you Bangkok Kitchen. http://www.bangkokkitchencaldwell.com/Menu/

    Knob Hill Golf Club in Manalapan has just introduced a gluten free menu,


    Knob Hill is not completely gluten free but they do go out of their way to ensure that there is no cross contamination. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and so is the manager, his wife has Celiac’s which is one of the main reasons Knob Hill wanted to introduce their Gluten Free Menu

    Wanted to let you know about a gluten free bakery that opened in Stirling, NJ. Terrific baked goods and other gluten free products are carried. The people who run it are extremely nice and helpful too.

    Mama’s in Hackettstown and Janice’s in Hohokus are two of the best GF restaurants in NJ. Another that is missing from the list above is La Riviera Trattoria in Clifton (http://www.larivieratrattoria.com). They’ve got GF pasta and GF breadcrumbs which means you can have real Chicken/Veal/Eggplant Parmagiana (or they’ll make it Milanese if you are dairy free). Oh, and when you are there make sure you get on their mailing list as a couple of times a year they open on a Monday night for a Gluten Free Dinner. Everyone in the restaurant is GF that night and so is all the food!

    I’m on a mission to eat at every restaurant in NJ offering gluten free (and dairy free) options. I’ve got quite the list going but have only made it to a handful so far: http://glutenfreedairyfreenj.blogspot.com/p/gluten-free-dairy-free-restaurants-nj.html

    Anyone traveling to Long Beach Island this summer will be happy to know there is a new gluten free bakery opening soon! Gluten Free Goodies Galore will offer fresh baked breads and desserts daily. Cake will be sold by the slice as well as whole. The bakery is located in the Manahawkin Mart building which contains many other shops- including a cheese shop which carries sheep and goats milk cheeses as well. There is a farmer’s market on Friday’s during the summer and a flea market on the weekends in the parking lot.

    Rigewood has a French bakery with wonderful macarons, flourless chocolate cookies, and sorbet. Our family just visited Paris, loved the macarons, and were thrilled to find them in NJ. They have soups, salads, coffee, tea, small tables – it’s just like Paris. They even have live music on some nights. The owner is trained at the French culinary institute and everything is made from scratch.

    I just recently ate at the Pandan Room in Hackettstown and the Rutherford Pancacke House in Rutherford. Both have lots of GF options. Pandan Room’s menu is probably 80% gluten free overall. Rutherford Pancake House has GF pancakes/waffles, quesadillas, pizzas and french fries! NOTE: neither establishment posts gluten free information on their website,
