During lockdown in April, my friend Josh asked me what I was most looking forward to doing once things opened up a little. My answer was easy…
Sitting in the garden at Frankies Spuntino, our homey neighborhood Italian spot. The Aperol Spritzes! The fennel salad! The cavatelli with sausage and sage! It’s worth going even if you run into your ex.
Also, I can’t wait to return to Eventide Oyster Co. in Portland, Maine, with their brown butter lobster rolls. My heart!
And Papalote Taco House in Austin, Texas, for those incredible breakfast tacos.
I’m rooting so hard for these — and all — restaurants to survive during these wild times. To help support them, you can purchase gift cards for future use, and here are a few other ideas. Where would you love to beam yourself right now? xoxo
