Charles: “During the winter, our favorite place is Teresa’s, but only sitting at the bar ordering wine and pizza and whatever appetizers they have on special. During the summer, it would be getting a bottle of white wine at Nassau Liquors and ordering lunch from Nassau Street Seafood and sitting at the tables out front, provided that it’s a perfect day.” Courtney: “I like our summer plan the best because you can get involved with two different local businesses — three if you count borrowing a corkscrew from the Blue Point Grill.”

Gerardo: “I think my favorite place to eat for lunch may be café Chez Alice. They have a really good panini during lunch and an excellent coffee. Also, I think it’s a good way to contribute to the community and all of these special places.”
Lindsay: “I’m from Philadelphia, but whenever I come visit, we usually have a great lunch at café Chez Alice.”
