Gluten-Free Watercooler-CO OP Restaurant

Another fabulous spot that caters to those whom are gluten-free!  This by no means is a gluten-free restaurant, but the chef (John Keller) and wait-staff and even the owner are very savvy!  I attended my sister's bday party last year at this fine Lower East Side dig and uber popular lounge.  We sat down and I immediately noticed the menu was asian fusion and sharing.  Sh*t I thought.  But then when I mentioned this to the waitress she went to ask the chef and she came back with a list written on a piece of paper that I actually still have and had taped it to my desk.  I will share it with you.  (see below, the list).

This restaurant is located on 107 Rivington between Ludlow and Essex, right in the Rivington Hotel.

A post long overdue, and a fabulous restaurant that needs recognition!

Here is the NO GLUTEN list from the chef on the Dinner Menu

Fluke Crude
Tuna Salad
Kale Caeser
Beet and Goat Cheese Salad
Baby Octopus
Chopped Salad
Paper Cut Salad
Lobster Cappuccino
Uni Risotto
Shisito Peppers
Chicken Lollipops
Shrimp Tacos
Grilled Asparagus and other grilled veggies
Fried Oysters-though I'm pretty sure this one is a mistake-or maybe they batter these babies in a gluten-free flour.
In addition to this list, they also have a "Simply Grilled" menu-meaning a list of fishes they prepare by grilling and not using sauces. 
Steak (no sauces)

I had the Shisito Peppers, Simply Grilled Salmon, Grilled Asparagus and the Tuna Salad.  Everything was delicious and for a tapas style sharing menu, these plates were quite large.  I had ordered too much!  About two plates too much.

                                 *all sauces used are gluten-free with the exception of the sauce
                                   used with the Salmon.  That one I did NOT use.

Their brunch menu looks delicious too!  But total bummer between the zillion pancake, waffle, biscuits and french toast there doesn't look like there is much for the Gluten-Free with the exception of the omelette, so I will not even post the brunch menu.  At least they have the dinner down pat with gluten-free options.  Win some, loose some.

Enjoy! xoxo Julie
