Order up! Support small restaurants + collect indie art
We love restaurants and the workers who keep them running. So many of the small, local spots that make the restaurant world magic have been devastated by the pandemic, and cooler temps could crush outdoor dining. Our government has failed, and electing people who make it a priority to support small businesses and their employees will be utterly essential to ensure a future for independently-owned restaurants. But! There are some small things you can do to help your neighborhood eateries in the meantime. This NY Times article is a good starting point, serving up a few simple steps. One of those steps involves scarfing takeout. Win-Win. Give it a read and remember to tip big.
In between meals, we know of another super small, indie biz eternally grateful for your support—ours! Treat yourself to some excellent new art if you’re able. The selects below bring a taste of dining out to your space. They’re an ideal fit for the walls of a restaurant fan, or any food lover for that matter. And there’s so much more food art to drool over in our collection, like the vintage pasta chart we released last week. Just be sure ya don’t browse on an empty stomach.
