Of the precious few things the restaurant industry can celebrate after the last few years, it is worth taking careful note of how its values in innovation and community care have shaped the landscape of recovery and growth. Pop-ups and food trucks offer some of the most exciting, creative food to be found throughout the region. They offer room for chefs to experiment and establish a new concept before taking the plunge into the often precarious venture of opening a brick and mortar space. While the restaurant world strives to recover from the upending impact of the pandemic, we are seeing a wealth of incredible menus born from chefs cooking and creating community on the alternative path forward.
