Food News 7/17/20

On this weeks episode of food news, snarky Ray makes his debut and spends the first 15 minutes giving his thoughts on the state of coronavirus in the U.S. before talking about the "partnership" announcement between American Airlines and Jet Blue. Then he touches on the Goya Foods controversy, Publix act of charity, Johnnie Walker going green, automation and robots at White Castle and Tyson, Burger King and methane, and why NBA players complaining about free meal kits in hotels in the Orlando Florida bubble is so tone deaf. Then Ray starts making the rounds state by state breaking down all the interesting restaurant openings and closings along with Moldgate, Alinea's misstep, the hostile workplace at Win Son, and the bartender vs owner clash in Houston at Taste Bar & Kitchen. Ray then highlights new restaurant openings in Ohio and the list of temporary re-closures in Columbus due to positive employee tests.
