Gluten Free in the city (not for the fad diet, but because I miss eating out)

Hello! Relatively new poster on the board, but long time reader. So thanks in advance for helping introduce me to the food culture if the city!

About a month ago, after some pretty severe reactions, my doctor put me on a strict gluten-free diet. He told me it was extremely important to avoid gluten--even in the most trace amounts--to avoid any further intestinal damage and neurological scares. Needless to say, I am avoiding the stuff for a reason. Believe me, passing by Murray's every day is killing me!

I have been scared to go out for fear of cross-contamination, etc. I know Grey Dog is a good option, and Chipotle's rice bowls work, but I am at a loss for eating out. Even non-gluten-free soy sauce can set off a reaction, so I need to be very careful.

Any other options? Price isn't too big of a deal, as I will just be happy to go out! Thank you!
