Eater published a list of restaurants that will be open during Hurricane Sandy, and many fine dining establishments will be open. Not sure how I feel about this. I love a restaurant just as much as the next New Yorker, but I’d prefer restaurant employees, who are non-essential, be home with their families during a major storm like this. There is no public transportation available, so if these restaurant employees can get to work, they have to drive. This goes against the local government’s safety advisement to stay off the roads. New Yorkers can stock up on non-perishables like everyone else during a hurricane, can’t they? For a city that’s supposed to be about survival, it seems quite the opposite to need foie gras during a hurricane. It also seems incredibly selfish to expect that restaurant workers should be there to serve you. Get a can of tuna with a side of cojones. What do you think?
