As I mentioned in Monday’s email, my first waitressing job was at Alpha Koney Island, where I learned from Nicko Stamatopoulos that so long as you can carry a few gyro platters on your forearm and keep soda cups refilled, you’ll never starve.

That’s a good thing, since it was about this time last year that I feared I’d have to find restaurant work to keep this newsletter going. Thankfully, readers came through when my Substack grant ran out, with enough of them purchasing subscriptions to allow me to give The Food Section my full-time attention.
