This gluten-free eatery, which launched in
midtown two years ago, is the second col-
laboration from husband-wife owners Danny and Olga Turner, who earned a reputation for offering tasty and creative gluten-free goodies at the original Pushkin’s Bakery on 29th Street. The modern, casual aesthetic of their sophomore effort owes its warmth and character to wood furniture handcrafted by Danny, including a communal table fashioned from a single redwood slab. The menu offers an eclectic lineup of breakfast and lunch items, with something for everyone, no matter where you land on the dietary spectrum. Off meat and dairy? Try the popular portobello Benedict with spinach, tomato and sweet potato, topped with a vegan hollandaise. Feeling carnivorous? Consider the hearty breakfast sandwich with bacon, egg, veggies and pesto on Pushkin’s sans-gluten country bread (which is also stellar slathered with mashed avocado). Pro tip: Order the table a basket of baked goods—think vegan banana bread and gluten-free muffins—for a sweet start to weekend brunch.
