GLUTEN-FREE PANINI AND DESSERT AT TU-LU NYC



Although warning is given that the bread these panini are served on was not made in a gluten-free facility (it's made first daily, after the machines are cleaned), no ill effects were felt by the full celiac and gluten-intolerant folks in our group. Which is great news, since these panini were terrific!

Here's the sliced roasted turkey and provolone sandwich, served with herb mayo and a side of salad. It got great reviews from the non-vegetarians among us. 





The ovo-lacto presence in our group was ecstatic over the 3-cheese, basil pesto and tomato sandwich pictured at left. You can see from this closeup how beautifully the bread toasted up. Heavenly!


If you want a temporary break from the extraordinary cupcakes (see slideshow) Tu-Lu offers, try this little cinnamon spice cake. Light and subtle. Perfect with the English Breakfast tea and coffees our group had. 

This is an intimate, charming, bright and cheerful place to stop for a sweet snack or sandwich. Service is warm and helpful.
Note: The chocolate peanut butter cupcake is unforgettable.
