Things will be a little different in this COVID 19 era –
Here’s what we’ll be doing to keep you and our staff safe:
-The maximum occupancy of the restaurant and patio will be reduced by 50% -Signage has been placed reminding guests to maintain a distance of 6 feet from one another (unless in the same party) -We have removed one chair per table, and use that space as a designated spot for the server to approach, so that they don’t have to squeeze into the table -We have removed salt and pepper shakers, candles, flowers, and all other table top items. These will be provided upon request, and sanitized thoroughly afterwards -Each table will be provided with a jug of water, and guests will provide their own refills -Servers will avoid touching cups or glasses when refilling wine or coffee -Servers will leave food and drinks at the front of the table, and guests can pass them once the server has stepped away -Guests will be asked to place all dirty dishes and glassware on the edge of the table. -Laminated menus will be sanitized after each use -If a guest asks to take leftovers home, we will provide the takeout container, and allow guests to pack it themselves -We encourage payment by “tap”.

Takeout orders will be placed on a table near the front door (away from diners); the table will be sanitized after each pickup -Take-out guests will only pick up at designated times. -Signage will be posted at washroom access to remind guests to keep 6 feet apart -Sanitizer stations will be set up at the front entrance, bar, patio entrance, and dishwashing area -No more than 6 guests from one party will be allowed at a table -We will keep contact information from one guest at each party for 30 days -A plexiglass barrier has been installed at the bar/payment area; barrier will be disinfected thoroughly at the end of each shift -Enhanced cleaning and sanitization of all frequent touchpoints has been implemented; light switches, door handles, faucets, tables, chairs, etc. all to be frequently disinfected -All cleaning staff has been provided proper training on cleaning and sterilization -Dishwashing protocols in place; dishwashers to ensure that all glassware, plates and cutlery are properly sanitized by checking the bleach solution when cycle has finished -All tables, chairs, and menus are to be disinfected after each guest -Bathrooms will be cleaned and sanitized frequently
