The Infatuation’s Favorite Restaurant Merch
The best finds from LA to London.

To say the least, the restaurant industry needs our help right now - especially after all they’ve done for us over the last year. That’s why we put this guide together, with our top merch picks from LA to London. It has an engraved serving board for your at-home charcuterie needs, a bagel-printed bandana to match your bagel-ridden heart, and lots of other giftable goods.

The “Cash Only” Bomber Jacket

Looking for a stylish way to tell strangers, “Yes, I know all about the best dive bar in Miami”? Buy the “Cash Only” embroidered bomber jacket from South Beach’s greatest bar, Mac’s Club Deuce. The tag says “A sunny place for shady people,” which will be a cool thing to show the next dive bar aficionado who nods at you from across the room.

A Onesie For Babies Who Like Restaurants

Your baby might not be forming words quite yet, but it isn’t too early for them to have good taste in restaurants. Strap them into this Boia De baby onesie. Rocking gear from one of Miami’s best restaurants is sure to impress all their friends down at, uh, wherever babies hang out.

An Actual Crab Claw Keychain

Stone crab season is a big deal in South Florida. And Joe’s, the oldest restaurant in Miami Beach, serves so many crabs that they make keychains out of excess claws. Pull this bad boy out of your pocket and people will know that you either A) have the patience to wait three hours for a table at Joe’s or B) are an amateur stone crab taxidermist.

A Bold, But Not Overbearing Long Sleeve

Like a mullet, this long-sleeve crewneck from Teranga is modest in the front but makes a real statement in the back. Available in either black or grey, this T-shirt has a colorful design that’s still subtle enough to pair with your everyday uniform.

The Serving Board That’s Almost Too Beautiful To Use

Having an engraved image of the original Russ & Daughters on your serving board is the grown-up New Yorker’s answer to an “I Love NY″ T-shirt. But no matter where you live, this gorgeous block of wood will make you think twice about where to cut up those strawberries in your kitchen.

The Perfect Pandemic Blanket

Wrapping yourself like a burrito in this blanket from The Four Horsemen should bring you lots of comfort while waiting for restaurants to safely open up again at 100% capacity. The cream color is embellished with a pandemic-appropriate version of the restaurant’s emblem, while the black version has an image of a bear drinking wine.

A Pineapple Bun Print

Because an illustration of Hong Kong-style diner food is much more pleasant to the eye than that dent on your bedroom wall.
