41 E. 78 St., New York, NY 10075

This spare, white boutique has a modern feel and is usually packed with Upper East Side sophisticates. Their pumpkin nuage is worth the expensive price tag (a cheesecake typically goes for around $70). This light cheesecake is made with real pumpkin, rich cream cheese and a touch of cinnamon. Whipped to perfection and smoothed over a graham cracker crust, one bite has you thinking you're eating an airy cloud of pumpkin bliss. Like we said: Worth it.

While the number of gluten-free menus in the Tri-State have increased dramatically over the last few years, finding wheat-free desserts is still a tough task in New York City.

The store only creates 100 percent gluten-free products, including their recently released pumpkin cheesecake and pumpkin cupcakes.
