A much beloved Kips Bay / Murray Hill neighborhood restaurant that was on the forefront of gluten-free dining and allergen-awareness here in New York City, Bistango, is opening a second location on the Upper East Side (1420 Third Ave at 77th street.)
I’ve been going to Bistango for a few years now. I’ve consistently had safe and yummy dinners that were prepared by an allergen-aware staff. If you’ve been there you may recognize it as the setting for the last scene of my Allergic Girl: Adventures in Living Well with Food Allergies (Wiley, 2011) book trailer.
Last week, I was interviewed by DNAinfo.com to reflect on the news that Bistango is opening a second location. A quote:
“[Owner] Anthony is a true restaurateur in that the customer comes first,” she said. “He focuses on what each customer needs and then tailors a menu to that.”

I can’t wait to try it out.
Best of luck to Anthony and the whole Bistango team!
