Whether you’re at home, at church, or at work. What is the one thing that makes everyone congregate together? Food. Food is the hub of social gatherings, outside of alcohol!
There are so many aspects to food bringing people together that we don’t even think about. Who prepared it, what’s in it, and where did it come from? All of those questions play a factor in social settings.
How many times have you been at a company potluck, where depending on who prepared a certain dish, that would determine whether or not you ate that particular dish? We’ve all been through that, but regardless of who made the dishes, you still came to the potluck because food was involved!
Well if you didn’t know already, New York is the nucleus of “New York style” food, regardless of what any “New York inspired” food, a chain restaurant can offer you. To get it authentic, you have to go straight to the source!
With food bringing people together, food is also the perfect reason to make that special trip to New York! Get your church group, or your social organization together to take a group trip down to New York to satisfy the foodie cravings you have.
