We’ve all been dealing with our pandemic realities for the past 92 days, 12 hours, and 32 minutes, but for members of the Asian community, it’s been even longer. Several weeks prior to the declaration of a state of emergency in Massachusetts, racist incidents occurred, Asian doctors were verbally abused in hospitals, and people stopped going to Chinatown even as early as January.
Now that restaurants are reopening again, we wanted to see how the neighborhood was faring. We found that most restaurants were open, and it was nice to see lunchtime lines for roasted duck and char siu. But overall, things were still pretty quiet.
So as you consider where to order food from, or which restaurants to visit, don’t forget about the spots in Chinatown. They need your support too.
