Owners and Patrons Happy to See Restaurants Opening
On May 15, 2020 restaurants began opening their patios and on May 21, 2020 their dining rooms. While many of our local restaurants have opted to remain closed for a while more, several restaurants have reopened or will be reopening soon.
Maria’s Family Restaurant at 22578 Lakeshore Blvd. is open for dine in service as well as takeout. The restaurant is set up for social distancing and the staff are wearing masks. Stop in and visit them for breakfast or lunch.
Great Scott Tavern at 21801 Lakeshore Blvd. will be opening for dine in service, delivery and take out on June 4, 2020. Manager Bob Edwardson said “The dining room and patio have been remodeled to comply with social distancing requirements and our staff will be taking all necessary safety precautions. Reservations are highly recommended.”
The Standard on E. 185th St. opened their patio on May 15th and their dining room on May 21st complying with all social distancing measures and safety precautions. Even though it was pouring rain on the 15th, several couples braved the weather to sit on the patio and enjoy owner/chef Said’s delicious food. One patron said “I’m so happy to be able to sit in a restaurant for a meal and be around others, even if it is at a distance.” Said commented, “The Standard restaurant is happy to be back and offers delivery through Uber eats & GrubHub. The patio and in-house dining will be open 7 days a week from 3:00 pm to Midnight. You can enjoy happy hour from 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm Sunday through Friday. Half off soups and salads, and $1 off cocktails, glass pour wines and beer. Please come join us on our patios, or newly renovated interior, and coming soon, Chef Said’s outdoor patio grill Selections.”
Please continue to support your local restaurants either through take out or dining in.
