So here's what we think...

Asellina Ristorante, located at the Gansevort Park Hotel, is trendy and sceney, and the perfect place for a girls/boys night out or to bring your next group of out of town visitors. Why? Well, the crowd is attractive, the food is great, and oh yeah… they now have a gluten free menu! Complete your night with awesome drinks on the rooftop, and you have the ultimate New York City experience…

Having a gluten free menu at Asellina is super helpful, as the cuisine is Italian and at first glance of the regular menu it can be hard to tell what is gluten free. Delicious sounding pizzas are sure to catch your eye, as well as other Italian specialties including bruschetta and meatballs, but these are not gluten free. So what CAN the nobread crowd eat? To start, the hamachi crudo and peach salad were delicious, and for all of the beet lovers, there is a wood-fired beet salad. For mains, the zucchini risotto is incredible. I struggle with dairy and only had a bite, but my one bite was enough for me to tell how good this dish is. My friend who had the risotto raved that it was absolutely delicious and by far the best order of the night. I went with a gluten free pasta primavera filled with vegetables sauteed in olive oil and garlic and I loved it. Asellina prides themselves on their gluten free pasta, and notes that the pasta dishes on the regular menu can all be prepared gluten free if you request the gluten free noodle. Lastly I had the roasted branzino and it was great! Prepared on top of sun dried tomatoes and fingerling potatoes, I couldn’t get over how tasty this dish was. Other entrees on the gluten free menu include the grilled 10oz strip tagliata, the braised short ribs, and grilled calamari.
There is SO much more for me to try at Asellina so I will absolutely be back soon! A special thank you to The One Group for hosting me and for going out of their way to make Asellina a gluten friendly establishment!
