Boy, do we love Paul’s Daughter, the beachside joint in Coney Island with the endearing name and no-frills vibe. We especially love it on July 4, under the fireworks, in a normal year.
Still, the place has endeared itself to us even more, in the pandemic era, by putting up transparent windows, enforcing a strict mask policy and, charmingly, putting masks on the “Paul” and “Daughter” replicas on the roof of the building.
This took work, and it cost money, but it makes its point, in a neighborhood where mask-wearing is somewhat loose.
Thanks Paul, and thanks Paul’s Daughter.
