Talk is...

“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:
