This week’s New York explores eating in the city with food allergies. How do you avoid various nuts, fruits, and spices in your favorite restaurants? Two allergic diners test three different restaurants, and food-allergy coach Sloane Miller gives tips for where (and how) to eat safely at restaurants. Adam Platt visits the posh South Gate and finds it far short of its aspirations, deeming it worth just a single star. And in "In Season," asparagus gets a novel treatment from Phillip Kirschen-Clark, the “secret chef” at Jimmy’s No. 43.
