Gluten Free Eats: Tali and Tali Dolce
After my visit to Tali Restaurant and Tali Dolce today all I can say is “wow”! The gluten free world in NYC has been buzzing with rave reviews about these two spots for a few weeks now and I couldn’t wait to finally visit them for myself.
Rooted in redesigning Italian classics, Tali Restaurant boasts a large selection of classic paninis, pastas, salads, soups, and innovative brunch dishes; while Tali Dolce provides a delicious selection of desserts including cookies, ice cream, tiramisu, and even homemade snickers!
Not only can you enjoy a beautiful sit-down meal at Tali, but diners can also easily pop in to grab a quick bite. I am always on the lookout for fast, easy, convenient, and delicious gluten free options, especially for lunch, and Tali certainly answers the call!
If you live in New York City or are just passing through for a visit please make sure you stop by Tali and Tali Dolce. They are open for lunch, dinner, and brunch. Thank you Tali for providing truly celiac-safe and delicious meals!
Wheat-averse diners and Paleo fans may be pleased to know that ]consulting] chef Harold Dieterle is back to open an entirely gluten-free Italian restaurant, bar, bakery, and ice cream shop.
Tali, a take on the word “Italian,” falls under newish E.E. Hospitality umbrella (Hill and Bay, E&E Grill House), the group that’s assigning Dieterle to tackle Italian cuisine — a difficult genre to make gluten-free. Look for dishes like Meyer lemon spaghetti, yellow squash ravioli, or spaghetti and meatballs on the menu, as well as a panini with gluten-free bread, coffee, and gluten-free pastries in the pasticceria. The bar will offer eight taps that include one for cider, dry rose cider, prosecco, wine, and rosé, also 100 percent gluten-free.
Gluten-free eaters have a big new restaurant to try with the opening of Tali & Tali Dolce, an entirely gluten-free Italian restaurant, bar, bakery, and ice cream shop from consulting chef Harold Dieterle that has officially debuted in Kips Bay.
Tali focuses on the savory side of things, with tons of dishes that aren’t usually associated with gluten-free eating. Pastas and panino headline the slim menu, which is filled out with salads and soup. See it in full below. Over at Dolce, cookies, cupcakes, brownies, and more all get the gluten-free treatment, too. There is cider, prosecco, and wine to wash it all down — and, yes, the drinks are gluten-free, too.
Dieterle has been MIA from the New York City restaurant scene for the last two years after the closing of his well-regarded Kin Shop and Perilla. This opening marks the return of the first Top Chef winner in a collaboration with the newish E.E. Hospitality group (Hill and Bay, E&E Grill House).

A Gluten-Free Italian Restaurant Is Opening In NYC
With the fancy fare openings of abcV and NIX, and hey, even the spattering of by CHLOEs all around, the vegans in this city are spoiled. The ignored middle child (a.k.a. untapped market) of the picky eating bunch? Our Gluten-Free folk, of course. Well, that’s about to change.
If you’re tired of surviving on bunless burgers and half-assed GF menu replacements, you may want to mark your calendar for September 12th, the current opening date of Tali & Tali Dolce, an Italian heaven for the celiacs (and health nuts) among us.
Tali (a take on “Italian”) apparently won’t have an ounce of gluten in the place, which includes a bar, bakery, and ice cream shop (that’s where the “dolce” comes in). According to Eater, diners can expect dishes like Meyer lemon spaghetti, paninis, and pastries. And yes, even all the booze is free of gluten.
Top Chef season one winner Harold Dieterle is returning to the Big Apple with a new gluten-free Italian restaurant. Dieterle is the Consulting Chef at the new Tali Restaurant, located in Kips Bay on the corner of Lexington Avenue and 26th Street. Oscar Antunez will serve as executive chef, with Angelic Puglisi acting as pastry chef and director of operations. E.E. Hospitality Group, which runs two other NYC restaurants so far, is behind the project.
There have been major advancements in the gluten-free pasta arena since carbs were first targeted as the root of all evil by people other than celiac sufferers. Dieterle and team will be cooking up concoctions like penne with roasted butternut squash in a sage, brown butter, pecorino and toasted pumpkin seed sauce, and a classic spaghetti and meatballs combo. Paninis, served on gluten-free bread baked at the restaurant, include ones stuffed with a chicken saltimbocca riff with prosciutto, sage and fontina cheese and another wild mushroom with taleggio cheese, spinach and truffle oil.
The restaurant has just been open for lunch until Wednesday, but now dinner service includes entrees like Eggplant Parm ($18.25) and Salmon Caponata ($21.75) to supplement the pastas. You can also check out the next-door pastry shop Tali Dolce, where all the baked goods are gluten-free, too.
Bakeries Offer Gluten-Free Delights
