About

I’m Juliet, a 21-year-old college student born, raised, and currently living in NYC. I’m allergic to tree nuts. I like taking photos, and I like keeping lists. Oh, and I really like to eat. Hence this blog.

Here, you’ll find my collection of nut-free (or, more often, allergy-friendly) eateries in or around New York City, as well as the occasional post about an allergy-friendly product or company I’ve found. My (unattainable) goal is to be comprehensive—really, that’s why I’m doing this. I’ve spent a lot of time scouring the Internet, but I rarely find more than a few places to eat on one blog or list. It’s frustrating. And I have cravings. So I suppose it’s time to put together a list of my own.

That’s it, really. If there are no nuts on the menu, I’ll be there. And if there are nuts on the menu, but they’re easily avoided—well, I’ll probably still be there. And if I’m there, you’ll certainly be hearing about it.

New posts published regularly—but here are some lists of the places I tend to buy food if you’re feeling particularly impatient.

    Your blog is so helpful & entertaining! My tree-nut allergic kids are visiting NYC for the first time this April. You’ve given me so many ideas for places to try.

    Thanks for this! I’m visiting New York and I’m allergic to peanuts and nuts. Keep on posting this is very helpful to a lot of people! Just wondering if some of the restaurants you’ve listed if they have peanuts but no tree nuts because you’ve stated that your allergic to tree nuts so could some of the stores still have peanuts present?

    • Good question! Yes, a number of the restaurants I’ve posted about (or included on my list of allergy-friendly restaurants I like) do have peanuts present. Some have tree nuts present, too, but if the restaurant’s on this blog, then its staff should be able to accommodate tree nut allergies. I’ve posted about a few places that I wouldn’t recommend to someone with a peanut allergy—some Chinese places, some Vietnamese, whatever—but the vast majority should be fine, I think. And most of the nut-free places I’ve found happen to be peanut-free, too.

      If there’s any one place (or set of places) you’re wondering about, please do let me know and I’ll be happy to give you the rundown. Have a great trip!

    Your blog is really helpful! I’ve been to NYC more times than I can count, but am now bringing my peanut- and tree nut-allergic 2 year-old, which is a whole new ballgame. Thanks for easing my stress a bit with this information!
