Best Take-out Presentations

cappucino | Nov 10, 2013 04:18 AM

Recently, I chose to get take-out from Carlos and Gabby's in Queens to surprise my son. The presentation of the take-out or lack thereof was really disturbing. They threw 4 chicken fingers into a huge styrofoam container with nothing else. Sauce was in a small plastic container. Guacamole for which I paid 4 dollars was in almost the same tiny size container as the sauce and had black spots on the top. No napkins or utensils. I had to get those myself (I know other places do that, but this one didn't even throw in one of those prepared packets of spoon, fork, knife napkin). There was no love--or respect--in the way they sent their food out. So that led me to thinking. Which lower-end restaurants present their take out with respect. Grill Point, btw, comes to mind. Who else? Where else? How?
