Finding gluten-free options can be a struggle and sometimes underwhelming when you do. Not everyone is interested in always having crouton-less salad, soup, or French fries. You want to be able to enjoy as much of the menu as you can and order pizza, bagels, pasta, and panakes like everyone else. We have searched and scoured through menus, photos, and reviews to see which establishments offer gluten-free options of typically gluten dishes — the foods you’re probably really missing. We came across avocado toast, cheesecake, empanadas, and more. Read on for a guide to which Essex County restaurants have gluten-free versions of typically gluten-filled foods.
