Impossible Foods nabs some Canadian fast food franchises as it expands in North America

After rolling out in some of Canada’s most high-falutin burger bistros, Impossible Foods is hitting Canada’s fast casual market with new menu items at national chains like White Spot and Triple O’s, Cactus Club Cafe and Burger Priest.

And Canadian customers can also pick up Impossible Foods -based menu items at those ch...

New York City is allowing indoor dining to reopen at 25% capacity, but experts say it isn't enough to save restaurants

Experts say that indoor dining at 25% won't be enough to ensure New York City's restaurants survive the pandemic.

I went on a food crawl through New York's Chinatown to witness how its restaurants are rebounding after devastating shutdowns — and saw how community is keeping Chinatown delicious

A walk through New York City's Chinatown. Irene Jiang/Business Insider Chinatown districts have been some of the hardest-hit by shutdowns, decreased tourist traffic, and racist stigma.

Restaurants: One-dish wonders amaze in Glendale, Encino

Like many hungry locals, I’ve tried to find cheer during this Summer of Quarantine and Isolation with the joy of dishes that make me a happy camper — and a well-fed one, too. Some of those dishes, well-suited for takeout, are served by restaurants with a commitment to a singular dish. In some cases, it’s the only dish they make. In others, it’s the dish for which they’re most famous. And justly so! If you’ve ever been to Singapore, a place every good eater should visit at least once in their lif...

Restaurants can’t find workers even amid historic unemployment

By Nic Querolo and Leslie Patton | Bloomberg Not even the greatest surge in joblessness in 80 years is easing the fast-food industry’s years-old labor shortage. That’s because the COVID-19 pandemic is making this year’s economic crisis very different than past downturns when restaurants offered an important lifeline for the newly unemployed. Since service-sector jobs now mean a higher chance of infection, even higher pay isn’t coaxing workers into the kitchen. Key demographics — like teenagers, ...

Seafood has a south-of-the-border spin at Rosarito Fish Market Deli in San Fernando

I dropped by the much-loved — and for good reason — Rosarito Fish Market Deli in northern San Fernando recently for some takeout. I was reminded of the degree to which a big chunk of the restaurant experience…is actually being in the restaurant. These days, at Rosarito, you place your order at a table that sits in one of the doorways, pay for your food, and when it emerges — properly pronto for the heat in the Northern Valley can be daunting — you grab your bags, rush them to your car parked jus...
