In a New York State of Mind

PHEW! I'm finally back in Los Angeles after an extended vacation. Over Labor Day I went to Colorado (check out this post about Larkburger, a great gluten free place in Vail, CO); I flew back to L.A. on Monday and on Tuesday I flew out for New York City. It was quite a frantic schedule so excuse the lack of posts. Luckily while I was in NYC I hit up a few of my favorite gluten free spots! As I was leaving LAX, I saw this sign in one of the candy shops. I was flying JetBlue and was all the way at the end of the terminal (I forget my gate, sorry!). Unfortunately I was late for my flight so I wasn't able to inquire about the GF options.

Do any of YOU have information about this shop? Have you seen this sign? I'm not sure when I will be flying again next, but I will certainly check it out when I am!

I landed in NYC extremely early on Wednesday morning and hopped in a cab to my friend's apartment. I hit the bed pretty quickly and made up for the sleep I lost on the flight. When I woke up, I felt hunger pains for Mozzarelli's. I made my way down to 23rd & Park and couldn't resist over-indulging myself in the awesome Mozzarelli's slices.

The slice on the left was made with mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, and spinach; the slice on the right was my favorite slice from my previous visit, Artichoke. Both were up to the high standards set by my first visit to Mozzarelli's. I went over and said hello to the owner, Eli, and he made sure to send us over a slice of my favorite dessert from last time:

All in all, it was a pretty successful afternoon.

I'll have more posts coming about two new gluten free restaurants in New York City this week!
