Gluten-free eaters have a big new restaurant to try with the opening of Tali & Tali Dolce, an entirely gluten-free Italian restaurant, bar, bakery, and ice cream shop from consulting chef Harold Dieterle that has officially debuted in Kips Bay.
Tali focuses on the savory side of things, with tons of dishes that aren’t usually associated with gluten-free eating. Pastas and panino headline the slim menu, which is filled out with salads and soup. See it in full below. Over at Dolce, cookies, cupcakes, brownies, and more all get the gluten-free treatment, too. There is cider, prosecco, and wine to wash it all down — and, yes, the drinks are gluten-free, too.
Dieterle has been MIA from the New York City restaurant scene for the last two years after the closing of his well-regarded Kin Shop and Perilla. This opening marks the return of the first Top Chef winner in a collaboration with the newish E.E. Hospitality group (Hill and Bay, E&E Grill House).
Tali is now open for lunch weekdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., while Tali Dolce has longer hours on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and weekends from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
