New Yorker, we love you. But we’re so fond of the cartoon our graphic designer made for a contest last year, we’d like to keep doing it. This illustration–the first of many to come!–was inspired by the Good Dairy issues we did for both Edible Brooklyn and Edible Manhattan and our upcoming Good Dairy party.
