Ruby Foo's - Times Square
As I think you know, my brother and I try to go to dinner once a week. There's an endless supply of restaurants in New York City and we have tried many of them. These days we tend to eat only at restaurants with gluten free menus. But, after a year of this, we've pretty much run through them all. All the ones I'm aware of anyway.
Tonight we decided to try Ruby Foo's in Times Square. I heard of Ruby Foo's awhile ago but hadn't tried it yet for two main reasons: 1) it's pretty expensive, and 2) I hate Times Square. Anyone that lives in New York avoids Times Square at all costs. Full of tourists walking really slowly, there is pretty much nothing a person living in New York needs to do there.
But, wanting to try somewhere new, my brother and I decided to give it a try. The gluten free menu has three appetizers, three entrees, three sides, and two desserts. We shared the Chicken Lettuce Wrap for an appetizer and I got the Mongolian Orange Chicken for my main dish. They were both fine. I wouldn't recommend Ruby Foo's for people living in NYC, but it is a good option for people visiting the city that may be in Times Square anyway.
I'm always looking for new restaurant suggestions in NYC and elsewhere. Let me know if you have any gluten free recommendations!
