Walking into the brand new Schnippers in Tribeca, I am amazed at the sleek, contemporary decor and the large, open space that we don’t see quite often in New York City. My eyes focus on the beautiful, mid-century chairs that are so inviting and make you want to sit, eat a good meal, and wind down from the hectic activities in the Downtown Manhattan area…
Schnippers offers a separate gluten-free menu that includes all salads (ordered with no bread, croutons, or noodles), both french and sweet potato fries and of course everyone’s favorite: the chicken tenders. The fries are sometimes cooked in the same oil as the onion rings, so speak up to your server to make sure yours are not. Most importantly, Schnippers now has gluten-free hamburger buns so you can enjoy all the amazing burgers the place has to offer!
I decided to try the Schnippers Classic Burger with a gluten-free bun. The burger is cooked to perfection and topped with a special cheese blend, caramelized onions, thick-cut Applewood smoked bacon, and baby arugula. I was in food heaven! Excited about the many gluten-free options available, I also decided to try the chicken tenders, next to a plate of gluten-free french fries, and why not sweet potato fries as well? For my chicken tenders, I asked for a honey mustard sauce out of several other ones– including buffalo, chipotle ranch and bbq. For my sweet potato fries, a finger-licking maple sauce. It was that good.
Schnippers is an excellent choice to enjoy an all-day menu with great gluten free options inside a clean, open space, ideal for a quick solo meal or a large group.
