The Re-Emergence Part 10

We are working on Saturday to get everyone caught up. There has been a lot going on, so if it says “today” chances are it refers to yesterday, May 22. But, all should be current, which means not all restaurants are opening just yet beyond takeout/curbside/delivery. Plus this update has two more of the Michael Family Restaurant Group’s restaurants listed. That’s exciting. I love them. Here’s part 10.


From Mama Zoe Michael’s and Yamas’ Facebooks:

Our dining room is open and we are so excited to serve our community! We will reopen our dining room operation on Friday, May 22nd at 5:00 PM with 50% capacity. We will resume our business hours from Sunday 8:00AM-2:30PM Monday-Saturday 8:00AM-8:00PM
Please be patient with us during this transition period and as we adjust to new operating and safety procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic.
For the safety of our customers and staff we have made some changes, here is what’s new and what to expect during phase 2.
-Curbside and delivery services will resume
-Employees will continue to wear mask and gloves at all times
-Employees will continue proper hand washing and sanitizing
-Meticulously cleaning
-We will be doing daily employee health screenings before each shift
-Tables and chairs will be set 6 feet apart.
-We’ve rearranged our dining room to accommodate social distancing requirements
-Tables, chairs, menus and other common items will be disinfected after every use
-Customers will be asked to maintain 6 feet apart from each other
-Hand sanitizer will be placed throughout the restaurant for guests
-All condiments have been removed from tables
Thank you so much for your continued support! We can’t wait to serve you once again!


From Mi Pueblo Mexican Grill’s Facebook:

We are happy to announce that we will reopen indoor and outdoor dining starting May 22nd at 5 p.m.! We are taking all the necessary precautions for our employee’s and customer’s safety. We will reopen at 50% of our capacity. You can also take advantage of our spacious outdoor patio seating at most locations. We can’t wait to see you all again! Thank you for your support during this time.


From Midtown Cafe & Dessertery’s Email:
We are still trying to process the reality of the world today. As a small, family-owned business, we knew this would not be easy. We have spent the last couple of months testing new recipes, re-assessing, and looking at how to grow and improve. We are working hard to evolve to what is going on in the world today so we can continue to serve you, our community and our employees, even if it may look a little different than it has in the past.
On behalf of the entire team at Midtown Cafe, we want to say thank you for your continued patronage during this difficult time. The amount of support you have shown over the past few months has meant so much to our Midtown Family.
With that being said, we are happy to announce we will be reopening our dining room starting Saturday, May 23rd. We will be open daily from 8 AM until 8 PM. We will also continue to serve you through takeout or curbside if you wish. Additionally, we are offering our full menu.
Due to the required seating capacity we encourage customers to visit during the non-peak hours of 8 AM-10 AM and 2 PM-5 PM.
We are creating an environment where it is safe and comfortable for everyone. We have put safety procedures in place which include:
  • Providing face masks for all employees
  • Practicing social distancing and limiting the number of customers and employees in the building
  • Offering curbside service
  • Increasing cleaning and sanitation
  • Adding “safety” staff members to assist in sanitation processes
  • Sanitizing every menu, tables and chairs after each use
  • Abiding by the state’s capacity restrictions
  • Putting hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the restaurant

From Milner’s American Southern’s Facebook:

A quick hello to all of our friends and Milner’s family:

We remain open for curbside pick up Tuesday – Sunday from 4p – 8p. We want to thank all of you for supporting our family business over the last months and for helping us spread the word.

Like all of you we are excited to expand our offering and we miss seeing you here at Milner’s and we miss providing the special experience we’ve worked hard to create here. We are chomping at the bit to get after it!

Many have asked over the last several days our plans to reopen and we thank you for your excitement.

Bottom Line: We aren’t ready quite yet.

We have our eyes on Friday, June 5th as a tentative target day.

We would love to be open today but there are many steps we need to take and business decisions to consider before we move forward.

First and foremost is the safety of our families, employees and our customers. We will be spending the coming weeks continuing to make sure we have every tool in place: training sessions completed, PPE equipment for staff, and sanitizing products to create the right conditions for a safe environment.

Simultaneously we have to make sure that Milner’s remains financially viable and make adjustments for 50% capacity.

There are so many things to consider and this decision is not made lightly. We are excited about our restaurant friends who are opening today and wish for them all success. We remain vigilant and will continue to update our progress.

In the meantime: Check out our website gotomilners.com for the current menu.

Two ways to order:

Call the restaurant 336-768-2221 after 12p to place an order and pay over the phone. Call early and avoid peak call times.

Or, download the Swipeby App to order and pay online beginning at 3:30 each day. It’s super easy and doesn’t cost anything to use.

Thanks for taking the time and for your support. Feel free to ask questions in the comments.

All of our best,

Stay safe, lean in!


From Mozelle’s Fresh Southern Bistro’s Facebook: (retyped for style)

Happy Phase 2 Friday! Since Governor Cooper’s announcement on Wednesday at 5:00 PM, every restaurant in NC has been scrambling to figure out a business plan for Phase 2. We would like to share with your how Mozelle’s will navigate this landscape over the weeks to come. We will continue to offer curbside pick-up, takeout and delivery. Additionally, Phase 2 allows anyone who would like to dine at our sidewalk tables, which are appropriately set apart in compliance with social distancing guidelines, to do so. This means you can eat your takeout 15 minutes fresher with that Stag’s Leap Chardonnay, watching the sunset over West End. We look forward to resuming table-side service outdoors on June 1 and we are actively devising a plan for indoor dining that both complies with state guidelines and ensures the Mozelle’s experience.

With all these changes, the one thing that restaurants can’t do is provide intimate dining experiences, so we will continue to offer Mozelle’s At Your Table Wine Dinners and we even have a “date night dinner up next week. It features the Latin flavors that you have come to know and love from our “pre-COVID” brunch menus!


More to come, stay safe WSNC!!!

Crafted: The Art of the Taco

After much deliberation, we have decided effective immediately to close to the public for dine-in guests. This decision was not taken lightly as we had to consider so many moving parts but most importantly the safety of our teams, their families and the safety of our guests. We will be offering walk-up/call-in takeout orders with a limited menu starting Wednesday this week through Sunday 11am-7pm and will continue forward with takeout operating hours of Tuesday through Sunday from 11am-7pm. We will be adding a 20% service charge to all orders that will go directly to the staff. We are strongly considering delivery service but are continuing to work through those details and will keep everyone informed. We thank you all for your continued support and understanding as we all face what our “new normal” looks like for the unforeseeable future.

Update from Crafted… They have suspended ALL services INCLUDING their takeout and delivery services.

Milner’s American Southern

Many of you have asked about takeout. We are currently offering anything on the lunch or dinner menu. We will be offering a special menu soon with family meals & salad kits etc. (336) 768-2221

Ryan’s Restaurant

Ryan’s Restaurant has temporarily changed its business model due to the effects of the coronavirus. We are now offering menu items – uncooked – for curbside pickup. PLEASE help support a local, independent business and consider shopping here for your grocery needs as opposed to a large grocery chain. We sell high-quality products at a now-reduced price.

We are still tossing around the idea of take-out. If you’re interested in take-out, please comment so we know what the demand is. #shoplocal #finedining #goodeats #coronavirus #shopping #grocery
