"Hey! I have a date tonight! And my date is gluten-free... where should we go?!" I receive this email or Instagram message every day or two. Let's be honest, there's enough to stress about when you're going on a first date, and whether or not your date can eat at the restaurant you've picked shouldn't be one of them! When I first started dating in New York, guys would take me to restaurants that were 100% gluten-free or SUPER allergy-friendly,but these restaurants aren't necessarily the city's hot spots. So I've taken it upon myself to put together a list of the best 'hot spots' to take your gluten-free date!
