After being hit hard by the pandemic for two years, New York City’s restaurant workers are eager to continue welcoming back customers. Mayor Eric Adams has exhorted residents to get out of their apartments and experience the city. But after so much time eating mostly at home, what — and where — do people who love dining out in New York want to eat now? And how can they make sense of the state of restaurants today?
On April 8, Times subscribers can find out in a virtual event hosted by Nikita Richardson, a Times Food editor and the writer behind the new subscriber-only newsletter Where to Eat.
Ms. Richardson will interview Daniel Baker, also known as Desus Nice, a Bronx native who is a comedian and co-host of the late-night show “Desus and Mero.” Mr. Baker, who has praised the roasted leek focaccia at the popular Brooklyn restaurant Lilia and holds strong opinions about how to find a great chopped cheese, will discuss his favorite restaurants and where he’s eating in New York City right now.
Ms. Richardson will also speak with Priya Krishna, a Times Food staff reporter who recently covered a Brooklyn bodega known for its extravagant sandwiches. They will discuss restaurants and dishes they crave in this moment and how dining out in New York has changed, as well as answer subscriber questions and talk about subscribers’ favorite restaurants.
We hope you’ll join us. And we also want to hear from you about where to eat in New York City. Where are you eating right now? What’s on your wish list? Share your thoughts or ask a question in the form below, and we may use your contribution in the event.
