"I won't wait hours in line for fad foods," says the BA Foodist, Andrew Knowlton. Yes, he's looking at you, cronuts, cronut concretes, and cronut pizza. ("I made that one up, but hey, it can't be long!") But classic, last-meal-worthy comfort foods, executed in their most expert, dare we say perfect, forms? We'll wait for that. For smoky, almost melty brisket; for oysters so clean, cold, and salty-sweet you could call them "crisp"; for the bread we expect to eat in heaven (given we don't eat so many pillowy doughnuts that we're sent to that other place). These are the five things our staffers actually would wait hours to purchase, stare at for a bit, and take a couple whiffs before putting in our mouths and closing our eyes, feeling lucky to be alive.
