Water's Edge Restaurant, Long Island City

Water’s Edge Restaurant

44th Drive and The East River

Long Island City, NY

Water’s Edge is an elegant Landmark New York restaurant with a magnificent view of the Manhattan skyline. Recently I had a wonderful birthday dinner at Water’s Edge, and after my guests' exclamations of how wonderful the food was I happily informed them that the whole party menu (made especially for the occasion) was gluten-free!  The Chef and restaurant easily accommodated me, and the party menu only stated the occasion without bringing attention to the fact that everything had been prepared GF. I was delighted with the success of the meal and my friends' (not Celiacs) overwhelming enjoyment of their dining experience. Besides the great food, there is a piano player that fills the room with music that adds to the whole event.

Of course, who wouldn’t enjoy a menu of salad or rigatoni, filet, mignon or Chilean sea bass with wonderful side dishes, and as always the most important desserts of molton chocolate cake with coffee ice cream or crème brûlée. The menu appealed to all tastes and everyone had a wonderful meal. The party was a success!

I highly recommend Water’s Edge Restaurant for any party, wedding or corporate event. And there is outside dining where you can sit on a balcony over the water which is just wonderful now that spring is here. Try this restaurant for a special dinner – gluten-free!
