Restaurants 2021

This page lists 26 meals I ate in restaurants in 2021. Cities are in California except as noted, cost is per person including tip. I have kept complete restaurant data since 2010, though I generally don't list Costco shopping trip hot dog lunches or banh mi to go. In rare instances where a restaurant experience is particularly noteworthy, I post a review on Yelp under a pseudonym.

This page is dedicated to a few old favorites, gone but not forgotten: Elsie's, Kapok, Hsi Nan, El Tazumal, Cendrillon, Thanh Da.

Ate lunch outside on Cortland on 4/14/21, the first restaurant meal after just over a year of not eating in a restaurant (and very little takeout). Ate lunch indoors at Ruta Oaxaca in Astoria Queens on 6/19/2021, the first indoor restaurant meal in well over a year.
