I had never had a galette but since I was a little girl loved crepes or “roll-up pancakes” as they were called at my house. My daugher’s celiac diagnosis meant that I had to really work to find a way to have us continue to enjoy this favorite way to have sweet and savory treats. We use Pamela’s pancake mix or our favorite all purpose gluten free flour out of Utah, Life Tastes Good Again, to make crepes at home but had not yet found a place we could enjoy these favorites while dinning out.
Enter Bar Breton. Chef Cyril Renuad has created an amazing gluten free menu, including buckwheat galettes from his native Brittany.
We had a late brunch there recently on a trip for a friend’s wedding. Our friendly waiter answered our questions about the menu as best he could and was very knowledgeable about gluten free, even offering his own critique that they should offer some type of gluten free beer because “people always want it.” We did stump him with whether or not their bloody mary mix was gluten free but we didn’t even know for sure what common ingredient makes these not gluten free but guessed Worcester?!
The brunch options were very affordable, especially for New York, with our total bill for chorizo galette and bunless GF burger with Parmesan and fries as well as two mimosas a piece at around $50. It even has a wonderful patio. If you are in New York or just visiting, Bar Breton is worth you time.
