Best tip to amp up your takeout?
Can’t go wrong with more mayo on just about anything for a spruce-up.

What restaurant do you wish was open?
I feel like I have been making the rounds to many neighborhood restaurants to support with takeout, and I am so very grateful that most are open.

What do you miss the most about restaurants?
I miss the people. I miss the frequency of seeing all community members at my restaurant, and I miss seeing restaurant peers across the city with regularity and at events.
