  • Eating Paleo Downtown Manhattan (Flatiron, Chelsea, Village)

    Other than Hu Kitchen, these are not all purely paleo places, but all have excellent options for people who eat clean, low- or no-grain food.

    Vegetarian / Vegan

    A paleo/primal wonderland. Everything is grain-free, and it's all clean. Kind of magical. No table service. My review: tinyurl.com/m9hpbw8

  • Dickson's Farmstand Meats

    2

    Butcher

    Their meat is fresh, local and clean, and they also have the best rotisserie chicken, housemade jerky, rockin charcuterie, & more. Lots more in Chelsea Market.

  • Lobster Place

    3

    Fish Market

    Seafood freshness tied with Eataly (though bigger selection here), and great prep'd food options: salads, rillettes, sushi... Perfect High Line picnic food.

  • One Lucky Duck - Chelsea Market

    4

    Vegetarian / Vegan

    Juice and take out with raw, vegan, decadent desserts. Mostly coconut and nut-based, they would conform to a paleo diet. Expensive! But organic & no fillers.

  • Greensquare Tavern

    5

    New American

    Clean food. Kitchen will adjust prep. Wed is Gluten Free fried chicken night - WHAT?! Faves are duck breast & spaghetti squash. Not open for Sunday dinner.

  • Bell Book & Candle

    6

    New American

    Great date place, spectacular food. Best lamb chops I've ever had, and winter menu's venison chili is UNREAL. They grow many of their own veg/herbs! LOVE!

  • Hill Country Barbecue Market

    7

    BBQ

    Fast, easy, ridick casual (e.g., roll of paper towels on table for napkins), and delicious. Lean brisket is my favorite. Wed is whole pig night!

  • Souen

    8

    Vegetarian / Vegan

    Macrobiotic = vegan+fish. Grains abound, but easy to avoid. Veggies are plentiful and fresh. Detractors say not enough flavor. I disagree! Pace is sloooow.

    Salad

    Choose-your-own-ingredient salad place that does it right. Mostly locally farm-sourced, community-aware place. LOVE IT! Long weekday lunch lines.

  • Foragers City Grocer

    10

    Grocery Store

    Market has prep'd foods, with delish rotisserie meats after 4 p.m. or so. In restaurant, squash soup and duck are my faves. Non-traditional porchetta.

  • La Bottega

    11

    Italian

    Great date place, with nice outside area (enclosed in winter). Lots of pizza & pasta, but chicken, salmon and pork chops are delish paleo options.

  • GustOrganics

    12

    Vegetarian / Vegan

    Has paleo, veg, raw, macro options. All organic. Sustainable philosophy throughout. I love the "hempanada" appetizer. Pace is slow.

  • Union Square Cafe

    13

    American

    Upscale $$$$ restaurant with huge menu and fresh food. Good for dining with non-paleos & for spec occasions. Kitchen & staff will adjust prep to meet needs.

  • The Marrow

    14

    German

    German / Italian place. They serve marrow, and put cocoa nibs in their snap pea side!

  • Otto Enoteca Pizzeria

    15

    Pizza

    Not good for main paleo dining, but you might need a pizza place for the kids. This at least has great wine, and amazing vegetables & meat/fish antipasti.
