New York City hospitals and a popular GFRAP restaurant in NYC recently received top rankings in national publications.

U.S. News and World Report ranked the Best Hospitals in America 2007. The only NYC hospital to make the Honor Roll of the strongest all-around medical centers is New York-Presbyterian University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell, which ranked sixth—behind Johns Hopkins (Maryland), The Mayo Clinic (Minnesota), UCLA Medical Center (California), Cleveland Clinic (Ohio), and Massachusetts General Hospital.

And now, on to the food!

City magazine compiled a list of 101 Favorite Restaurants nationwide. New York City dominates with 11 restaurants including Jean Georges, Lupa, Vong, and...Risotteria, ranked 27! Risotteria even has its own category: Italian/Gluten-Free!

So...congrats to Risotteria's staff and its owner, Joe Pace, and thanks to City for recognizing gluten-free cuisine. And thanks for the lead to Scott of Scoboco—one of my very favorite NYC blogs.
