My last full meal in a restaurant’s indoor dining room was on March 12, 2020. If I’d known then what I do now, I would’ve ordered dessert. And maybe a second cocktail.
Before COVID-19, my job as a food writer found me in multiple restaurants each week. But since March, like so many others in Connecticut, I have seen way too much of my own kitchen, dining room table and couch, as the majority of my meals have been at home.
