Gluten-Free Dinner and Conversation at Hu Kitchen

Hu Kitchen, a new restaurant just steps from Union Square, is ready to revolutionize the NYC dining scene. With an unprocessed and gluten-free menu, Hu Kitchen is a very welcoming place for our gluten-free community. Their passion for feeding their customers delicious and healthy food is apparent in each and every gluten-free bite.

Join us on January 8th at 7pm for dinner and conversation with Jordan Brown, the owner of Hu Kitchen. All attendees are required to order at least one item off the menu in order to participate in this event. A $3.00 RSVP fee saves you a seat and also gets you one piece of Hu Bread, a grain-free/gluten-free roll to enjoy with your dinner. (Bread does not count as your one menu item)

Space is limited to 15 people so please RSVP today.

A few wise words from Jordan Brown, the owner of Hu Kitchen;

"The only items at Hu that have gluten are the beers. Prior to our being entirely gluten-free with our food options, the only gluten we had existed in two sandwich breads. The plan was always to go gluten-free once we had perfected our own grain-free/paleo bread. We think we did that, so we eliminated the two grain breads.

We approach gluten-free as a necessity - not because it is a fad. Many companies are exploiting "gluten-free" so they can stick it on the label and exploit the customer perception that it is healthy.  We've seen iced tea bottles and highly-processed mac-n-cheese items with "Gluten-Free" on it.  Duh.  We actually think that gluten is toxic - for ALL human beings.  We see gluten sensitivity as a continuum - celiac on one end, and asymptomatic on the other. We believe that everybody is affected by gluten for the worse and is drastically better off (and feel and look better!) when it is eliminated from the diet.

We take a different approach to cooking gluten-free.  We don't use bizarre "natural" ingredients and inundate recipes with sugar to re-create/replicate gluten.  For example, our bread approach was to start with vegetables, and create a bread from that instead of grains.  Same idea for our grain-free muffins - we started with coconut flour and spent time perfecting a gluten-free and grain-free masterpiece (we think!)."

    This was a good meetup. conversation was good, and food was good. I started reading up on Paleo
    Diet. I do think I would like to do this kind of meeting we all sat in circle and shared information on Doctors. I thought this would be good for a program on cable TV.
