It was the perfect balance of work and play, with tons and tons of food!
You guys gave me great recommendations, and I thought it would be nice to recap the one that was recommended the most.
Friedman’s Lunch in Chelsea Market has an INCREDIBLE gluten free menu! Essentially you get the one basic menu, but then there are dots by every item they can prepare gluten free. And that my friends, is nearly every item!
The atmosphere is great: clean, rustic, fresh. Loved it! My colleague Katie and I sat down at the bar and she ordered what she declared to be the best iced tea she had ever tasted! Secret: mint.
We both ended up ordering a B.L.A.T. with chicken. Bacon, lettuce, avocado, tomato on gluten free bread with an herb mayo and roasted chicken.
A two-handed DELICIOUS sandwich! I ate every. single. bite. I kid you not. It was a perfectly balanced sandwich, and the gluten free bread was incredible. You would never know it was gluten free!
Served with a side of crispy chips:
I cannot wait to recreate this sandwich at home! Homemade herb mayo?!? Yes please. I want to drink it up!
And I pretty much did. My face was a giant mess the entire time I was eating but who cares! That sandwich was DELICIOUS!!!!
Thank you to everyone who insisted I try Friedman’s. Well played friends!
