“The restaurant world is upside down.” “The struggle is real.” “staffing is complicated” “deliveries are complicated” “customers want things to be normal - things are not normal” “we need to pivot….again”
“We (restaurant owners and employees) are exhausted” …. “Stressed” ….. “Confused”. “We spend hours and hours a day trying to control the flow of diners, only to refuse more people then we feed each evening”
“We are still in a pandemic”
And we agree with it all.
we've decided to pause seated dining for the moment
we of course have a delicious solution:
