If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to eat less gluten, you’re in luck. The uber-popular Baked by Melissa cupcake company that has many locations around the city including one on 7th Avenue between 38th and 39th Street has opened a second location right next door. But it’s completely gluten free.

Baked by Melissa’s $1 cupcake bites didn’t get the greatest reaction from you guys when it opened near Grand Central late last year, but it appears as if somebody music like the place because they are pressing on! The location on 7th Ave. btw 38+39th that we told you about last month is now open. Thanks to @muusic for sending along the photo.
It appears that Baked by Melissa will be bringing their (contentious) cupcakes to the lunchers and tourists in the Times Square area (7th Ave. between 38th & 39th St). I happened to walk by their plywood, which promises that these tiny (some would say overpriced) cupcakes will be available in Spring 2011. Try not to get too excited.
Last week saw the opening of yet another cupcake place in the Grand Central vicinity, Baked by Melissa (on 42nd between Lex+Park.) I’ve had the opportunity to try some of their mini cupcakes in the past, and they’re definitely above average: not cloying, good moistness, nice cake flavor, and tiny enough that you can have a few without feeling gross. With that in mind, I headed over to check out the new spot. The spot itself is primed for tourists as it’s next to the entrance to the Hyatt, and methinks the tourists will be their main customers.
