Next step: utensils! ;-p
There's a place around the corner from where I work that has been doing "bowls" for a few years. So NYC finally caught up to an insipid California trend. Which I'm sure we stole from someone else. I went to the place one time with my trainer because she was going on about how great it was. I walked across the street to Subway and got a footlong instead.
I feel the same way I did when "bone broth" became all the rage.
I *still* miss the Heaping Bowl in Atlanta (mostly for an excuse to eat a bowl full of mashed potatoes...), and that place closed nearly a decade ago
I should open a place and teach the world how wonderful it is to eat from glass pie plates. :D
I've been eating occasional non-salad, non-soup meals out of bowls for a long time. Sometimes it just makes more sense that way.
I prefer bowls. When I have take-out at my friend's, she grabs a plate for herself and a bowl for me.
Next step is old pasta sauce or salsa jars.
In college, there was a local restaurant famous for serving drinks in jelly jars and Mason jars. Waiting for that to become hip.
Mason jars have definitely been a thing. There was a "moonshine" and bbq bar down the street from me in Nashville that served in Ball jars.
Po' Folks was doing the Mason jars thing back in the 70's and 80's. That was the only reason I liked going there as a kid. LOL
