Though You May Not Drive A Great Big Cadillac

National Thai Pork and Pineapple Fried Rice, Papaya Salad and Steamed Dumplings

Take out is appreciated at next level this year.  How fortunate are we to be able to get not just quick, easy fast food but amazing better than expected flavors delivered in minutes, hot and steamy.  Local restaurants are nothing to take for granted, especially in these uncertain times.  When I came to New York from an already food-rich culture in San Francisco, I didn't fully grasp the culinary spectrum that I would revel in for years to come.  Yes, the rest of the country, due to amazing immigrants, have added new food offerings to small towns too but no where but New York can someone have this many low cost options within a three block radius and at times, not always, so much better than you could ever imagine.  It's something I fear, we've come to count on, but is in a real threat to survive.  Whether it turn into something only the wealthy can afford, or all the mom and pops, low cost shops go away, it's something that could potentially be a luxury of the past soon for normal schleps like me.  You can't fear the unknown, only be grateful for it now.
