My route from Heather's house to work led through Bloomfield, and that made me think of the lunches I used to have when I worked at Queria. Bloomfield had a great many tasty, cheap lunch places. I sometimes think nostalgically of the lunches from Thai Cuisine or People's Indian--but if I were to go back to Bloomfield for lunch, I would probably go to Tessaro's for a delicious hamburger instead, because going back would be a special occasion and that's a special meal. (And I haven't been back to Bloomfield for lunch since Queria went bust, which means that it's probably been at least two years.)
But at 9am, most of those lunch places weren't open. But one was: Donatelli's Italian grocery. I considered getting a meatball hoagie, but decided on the nostalgic choice of a fish sandwich.
The fish sandwich really was about the size and shape of a football; it comes with a full pound of fried fish between two large-but-inadequate buns. I ate half of the sandwich at 1pm--and at 3:30, I'm still feeling excessively full.
