Also I definitely recommend this website: Nut Free New York
And the Allergy Free Wife
Dedicated no-nut machines. They will also open new toppings to ensure no cross-contamination.
Foccacia they put on the table as it is made in house is pn/tn free. The fryer is pn/tn safe. Also enjoyed Fried Pickles appetizer (not on menu just ask for them). The rolls for the sliders have a facility issue but that was the only item on children’s menu that was off limits for pn/tn. The desserts were fun; vanilla pudding with crushed oreos and gummy worms, a brownie slider that looked like a cheeseburger, ice cream sundae or chocolate chip cookies hot out of the oven with a glass of milk.
Food City grocery store
They have the friendliest deli counter; receptive to being asked to put on new gloves for new order.
Nothing fancy but kids love it.
They were very helpful and concerned.
100 West Boston Post Road, Mamaroneck, NY 10543
Tel (914) 698-6881 or 6882
Yearly sponsor at the Westchester FARE walk. Best to call before you go and ask to speak to the owner, Gene; has allergic son and is very aware of food allergies and cross contamination.
AS fine foods store
Take-out Italian specialty shop and caters. The owner’s family has many food allergies. They make their own food in house, except bread and ravioli.
Bartaco (also in Stamford, CT)
No peanuts or tree nuts in current menu. Kitchens are not 100% free of all potential allergens, but fewer than many restaurants and 90% of menu is gluten-free. Individual dishes do contain sesame oil and other top allergens. But they have the ability to cook items for those with allergies separately from other food and staff is trained to take allergies seriously.
The restaurant was nut-free except for some pies that were made off premise and kept separate from the other food items.
Chef has nut allergies and was very cautious.
Mt. Kisco Diner
Very responsive, food is decent.
Has supported the FARE walk; very good with cross contamination/has a dairy-free sorbet for dessert.
Brooklyn’s Famous Sub Shop & Pasta
Kitchen staff is educated in food allergy safety and the staff was very accommodating with checking—and double-checking—ingredients of food.
Don Pepe’s Pizza
Will serve a pizza w/ no cheese and just w/ sauce, broccoli and mushrooms. They use a clean cutter and a clean board and tastes very good.
New York City
Offer a variety of gluten free pastas, bread, beer and pizza. Amazing with allergy and cross-contamination concerns and excellent Italian food.

Chippy’s Fresh French Fries
Has dedicated french fry frier. 412 Ocean Avenue, Pt. Pleasant Beach, NJ 08742 – (732) 295-2686.
Call ahead and speak with the manager and ask for him upon arrival. In the past, the manager has provided a print out of the dishes a customer could safely order–and they entered allergy information into their computer as well as the order so the information is there whenever the customer returns. They were very accommodating, and the manager seemed very knowledgeable about cross-contamination.
Conti’s Italian Restaurant
Good experiences with chefs and managers/owners with multiple allergies.
Specializes in thin crust pizza and has gluten free and/or dairy free (made with Daiya cheese).
