Gluten for Punishment
Opus Opens

order up!

Borough discrimination. Hipster persecution. Tourist harassment.

We all do our part to combat New York’s unique injustices. But leading the charge against nationally recognized intolerances? Leave that to Giuseppe and Enzo Lentini.

The brothers’ UES ristorante, Opus, discriminates against no diner. Celiacs can chow down on corn linguine, lentil-chickpea penne, and panzerotti — crispy half-moon pies made from gluten-free dough imported from Italy and filled with mozzarella, tomato, and mortadella.

Time crunchers can simply grab gluten-free specialty snacks (wafers, cookies, chocolate bars) at the bar. And dairy-free pizzas and plans for house-made soy and rice milk gelati will sate the most lactose-intolerant patrons.

Even insomniacs will find relief with a bar menu available until 5 a.m. every day of the week.

Now that’s what we call equal opportunity.

Opus, 1574 Second Avenue, between 81st and 82nd Streets (212-772-2220).
