Some of the best conversations happen over food. Families reconnect and talk about their days at the dinner table. Friends meet for lunch and catch up on their lives. Coffee is a great way to get to know someone. Romantic dinners are ripe for meaningful connections. There’s a reason why so many first dates include a meal. There’s something about sitting down at a table that puts people at ease and opens up the lines of communication. I’m a bit of a talker.

I eat lunch at my desk far too often, so when I go out with my coworkers, it’s always a welcome break in the day. No matter where we eat, the best part is always the banter. I work with smart, creative people who always make any meal more interesting. (By the way, do you have a spirit animal? Mine is a meerkat.)View story photos
