It’s time I posted on one of my favorite steakhouses in Midtown East: BLT Steak. Steakhouses, as I’ve mentioned before, are my favorite types of restaurants as they are incredibly easy to be gluten free at. Menus consist of meat, vegetables, and potatoes and it is pretty obvious to tell if there is gluten in your meal. This statement applies to BLT Steak; one of my favorite restaurants in Midtown East, and one of my favorite restaurants to catch up with clients…
To start, everyone is served the most MASSIVE roll I have ever seen. BLT is famous for this bread, but unfortunately, if you are part of the nobread crowd, there is no gluten free alternative to this roll. In regards to the menu at BLT, you can order just about everything offered! To start I suggest an appetizer salad; these salads are meals in themselves and quite filling. Also, all appetizers are nobread approved with the exception of the tuna tartar (soy vinaigrette is used). Now to the meat & poultry… I rarely order chicken at a restaurant, but the lemon-rosemary chicken is incredible and I highly recommend it. It is served in a stone pot and drowned in lemon oil; it’s perfect. The steaks at BLT Steak are HUGE and the most popular order (as you may have guessed by the name of the restaurant). Every kind of steak is offered, and what’s best is that YOU choose which sauce you would like to add to your steak and at what temperature you would like it cooked. This customization is great for people with gluten sensitivities and other allergies/dietary restrictions, as you control what is being added to your naturally gluten free food, if you want anything added at all!
To round out the menu, BLT has seafood options; however, I figure I will order fish when I go to BLT Fish in Flatiron. Also, the burger nobread is excellent and served with a large side of fries. Careful- these fries are subject to cross contamination, so if you are sensitive to this be careful. And don’t forget to check out the sides! Grilled asparagus, TRUFFLE mashed potatoes, and brussels sprouts are a few of my favorites.
