We did not see any difference between Newark and NYC.
I think the dynamic at play here is similar to why eskimos have 50 words for snow and we have just one.

Right, Jeff :-D  we sure had fine pizza both sides of the river. Hard to beat the NYC metro area
Haven't tried enough places here in Portland to make any full judgement of the shops here  but I can say with assurance, the Mexican street food here puts NY metro to shame!

bill, most people don't realize queens has a good albeit gritty mexican street food culture on Roosevelt avenue under the el but I'm sure the food you're finding in portland is better and served in a much nicer environment. I suggested to patrice it would be fun to retire to an apt in queens, eat our way through roosevelt avenue and publish a book. Her predictable response: "let me know how that works out for you" 

:)

best,
jeff

Gritty works for me :-D  Actually most places we've gone are food carts with picnic tables...we've eaten inside one place since the pandemic and will likely be staying outside a while longer.
