With the announcement on Friday that the NYC cupcake giant Crumbs is opening a 100% gluten-free store in New York City this October, there will soon be six 100% gluten-free bakeries in Manhattan. For an island that only had one gluten-free bakery less ten years ago (Happy Happy Happy which is now closed), having sixretail shops selling gluten-free baked goods is kind of a big deal for gluten-free New Yorkers. As a matter of fact, I think this is kind of a big deal for any city in the United States. Lower Manhattan seems to be the hot spot with 3 of the 6 gluten-free bakeries south of 14th Street. Getting on your walking shoes, loosen your belts, and get your gluten-free sweet on!
Pip's Place: The Gluten-Free Cakery (2 locations):
