@NYPost

IN-n-OUT, but not the burger! Governor Cuomo has announced that starting September 30, 2020 indoor dining will begin in New York City at a 25% capacity. With strict protocols including temperature checks upon arrival, contact information to keep track of traceability, and no service after midnight.

If the infection does not increase then these guidelines will be reevaluated based on data and restaurants maybe permitted to seat up to 50% capacity come November 1, 2020. When the decision was announced, mixed reactions came to surface from fellow New Yorkers such as restauranteurs, reporters, etc.

While we wait for indoor dining to resume in NYC, a new type of business has emerged: The Instagram Bakery. As bakers and chefs are still waiting to return to work full-time, finding an outlet to showcase their passion has become the new challenge. And what better way than to post your creations on Instagram and make them available for purchase. Eater has put together a guide to some of New York City’s pandemic-born Instagram bakeries, where you can place your order and have them delivered right to your door.

Meal Kits Is The New Mis En Place

Posted by Bea Davis on Jun 2, 2020 9:30:00 AM

mis en place take out

@renatapdx

As time passes our passion for cooking at home continues, but shopping for certain ingredients lacks hope due to inconsistency of sourcing products. So what does one do when they want to cook a delicious meal for their loved ones while in quarantine? The answer is... think locally!

Thanks to companies like Hello Fresh and Blue Apron who paved the way and became pioneers for home cooks to produce quality meals with the convenience of not only having it delivered to your front door, but have all the ingredients measured and ready to throw in the pan. Now, local restaurants are taking a page from that book and starting to supply their neighborhoods with meal kits in both savory meals and sweet treats ready to cook and consume.

The food world remembers Floyd Cardoz

Posted by Bea Davis on Mar 25, 2020 3:03:15 PM

https://ny.eater.com/2020/3/25/21193746/floyd-cardoz-chef-dies-covid-19

Screen Shot 2020-03-25 at 3.01.45 PM

"Floyd Cardoz, the pioneering Mumbai-born chef behind critically-acclaimed NYC restaurants Tabla and Bombay Bread Bar, has reportedly died from complications related to COVID-19, according to Indian publication Scroll.in. He was 59 at the time of his death.

Cardoz admitted himself to a hospital in New York shortly after his return from India on March 8, according to his Instagram account. He wrote in the post that he was feeling feverish and had admitted himself into a hospital in the city as a precautionary measure. The Hunger Inc., the hospitality company that he founded, put out a statement on March 17, confirming the news of his hospitalization.

The chef was a force in New York’s restaurant community — making his mark on the dining scene in 1998 with the groundbreaking Tabla, a fine dining Indian restaurant opened in partnership with Danny Meyer and Union Square Hospitality group. It debuted at a time when the higher end culinary scene had few Indian restaurants and was a critical hit, receiving three stars in the New York Times. A cult favorite, the restaurant closed in 2010 but to this day is remembered as one of New York’s greatest restaurants, particularly known for its bread.

He also opened Meyer’s North End Grill, and then went on to open several of his own restaurants in both India and New York, which were also well-received. In Mumbai, he had the Bombay Canteen and Goan restaurant O Pedro , while in New York, he had Paowalla in Soho, a space that he eventually turned into a lively and colorful restaurant called Bombay Bread Bar. It closed just last year."

Tourism Booms In New York City

Posted by Bea Davis on Sep 24, 2013 8:49:00 AM

According to Crain's New York Business 2013 Stats and The City, tourism continues to grow strongly throughout New York City.  Average annual hotel occupancy rates finished 2012 at 87.5%, 12% higher than 2002.  These numbers are even more impressive when you consider that the number of new hotel rooms on the market has increased by 24% since 2008, totalling nearly 106,000 rooms available.  The average daily hotel rate stands at $281, up 44% since 2002.

 

The city hosted 52 million tourists last year, up 129% since 2003.  John F. Kennedy International Airport launched 402,000 flights, up 43% since 2003.  

 

Who visits NYC?  The top ten foreign origins for NYC tourists were:

  • China
  • Brazil
  • Argentine
  • Australia
  • Mexico
  • Middle East
  • France
  • Russia
  • Eastern Europe
  • India

And where do they visit once here?  The top five tourist destinations are the Metropolitan Museum of Art, American Museum of Natural History, National September 11th Memorial and Museum, Empire State Building Observatory, and the Museum of Modern Art.  [Crain's New York Business]
