The Best Gluten-Free Dishes in Hoboken + Jersey City, According to a Celiac

Written by:

No matter where you live, you have your personal list of favorite restaurants, favorite dishes, and dishes you just can’t live without. Hoboken and Jersey City have a wide variety of cuisines and restaurants ranging from date night restaurants to bbq joints to authentic Italian food and so many more. But some rank higher than others when it comes to gluten-free dishes — and for some, that’s a must when dining out. To make all the options easier to navigate, here is a list of the best dishes in the Hoboken + Jersey City area that are gluten-free. All the dishes on the list are either gluten-free or can be made gluten-free, thanks to Kayla Cappiello, a Hoboken resident, Instagram influencer, and Celiac — who is here to share all the gluten-free tea.

Angry chicken from Corto {Gluten-Free}

Corto is located in Jersey City Heights, off of Palisades Avenue. It’s perfect for date night and is also BYOB. The menu is small and the website is very minimalistic but the food is absolutely incredible. Every item on the menu is an absolute knockout from the honey toast to the pasta. Although they do not have gluten-free pasta, they do have two gluten-free entrees on the menu, one of which is the angry chicken. This dish features slow-roasted chicken on the bone, with Tomato, garlic, guanciale, thyme, chianti, Calabrian chili. When the waiter described it as “falling off the bone” my first thought was that this is how every waiter describes chicken dishes, but do not be fooled. I can guarantee you, you have never had chicken fall off the bone quite like this. Juicy and full of flavor, this angry chicken from Corto comes in at #1 on the list.
