Behind the Blog

As a city girl with food allergies, I spend a lot of my time Googling restaurants, looking for some indication that they are allergy-safe. I grew up in Los Angeles, a place where food allergies are widely understood and often easily accommodated. Now that I live in New York, I find that it’s harder to get the same consideration that I get in California without extra costs. I always wish there was a blog telling me where there are safe places to get brunch or go on a dinner date or have a party. So here it is.

The Brunch with Bear team is dedicated to braving the city and embracing new foods, and then blogging about them as a resource for other New Yorkers with food allergies!
