I recently heard that the restaurant Stanton Social on the Lower East Side has a gluten free menu. So, of course, I decided to go check it out.
All menu items are geared to be shared. The gluten free menu has a wide variety of items so there are plenty of dishes to choose amongst.
I enjoyed the red snapper tacos with creamy avocado and spicy mango (see photograph), pan roasted chicken with corn pudding and sauteed spinach, lobster salad sliders, and grilled asparagus with smoked sea salt and lemon. For dessert, I had the white peach sorbet. Everything was delicious - my favorite were the red snapper tacos!
Just a word of caution, they do not fry their items using a dedicated gluten free fryer so if you have Celiac Disease you should avoid the fried items on the gluten free menu (ex. french fries).
