Once I learned that Lexington Brass served Gluten Free Pumpkin Spiced Waffles I couldn’t stop thinking about it. And luckily, I didn’t have to wait too long to try them.

Last weekend I had brunch at Lexington Brunch when Jeremy’s parents were in town. This quaint American brasserie in Midtown East is a nice change of pace compared to some of the other stuffy restaurants in the area. A refreshing alternative to the traditional midtown dining mélange, Lexington Brass offers a bistro-like experience, with floor to ceiling windows, tiled walls, marble tabletops and a big marble bar, and modern American cuisine, including many gluten free options.

Gluten Free Brunch Menu options include:

Fruit & Berry Jar

Pumpkin Spice Gluten Free Waffles


This Morning’s Frittata

Classic Eggs Benedict – served over potatoes or vegetables instead of an English muffin

Benedict Royale – served over potatoes or vegetables instead of an English muffin

Egg White Omelette with roasted mushroom and goat cheese

Baked Egg, Blue Crab & Avocado with bell pepper salad


Caesar Salad – NO croutons

Kale Salad with pinenuts and a roasted red pepper vinaigrette

Raw Bar – Oysters and Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail

Two Eggs any style

Morning Potatoes

Maple Glazed Triple Cut Bacon

The food was delicious and the portion sizes were not too big nor too small. The prices were a little bit higher than I normally like to spend on brunch, but it was well worth it to try it once. My only complaint was the service. Both our server and hostess were a bit stuffy, and we wait a while before being offered water and placing our order.

I've been on a gluten free diet since January 2009. It's been an adventure, and a challenge at times. I love to go to new restaurants and try new foods, and being gluten free can make eating out difficult at times. But I will not let my dietary restrictions get in my way of finding new restaurants and products. These are my stories of being a young women in a big city, eating out and trying new foods, all while NOT eating gluten. Like I said, it's an adventure and you are welcome to come along... Please note that as I try to eat gluten free 100% of the time, my intolerance is not as severe as others so please use caution when dining at restaurants that are not certified gluten free.
