The Re-Emergence Part 6

More restaurant news, part 6:


From Dairi-O’s Facebook:

As we enter into Phase 2 of reopening, we want to give our customers an update on how we will be moving forward with our operations. In order for us to keep our customers and staff as safe as possible, we have decided to keep our dining rooms closed for the time being. Through Memorial Day (5/22-5/24), we will be extending our hours to closing at 10 pm. The following Monday (5/25), we will be returning to our normal business hours from 10 am to 10 pm Sunday through Thursday and 10 am to 11 pm on Friday and Saturday.

After considering the requirements for restaurants under Phase 2, we believe our current drive-thru and curbside procedures are the most effective way to serve our community while maintaining our high standards of service and quality. We have implemented a vigorous cleaning schedule and will continue to require our staff to wear personal protective equipment. We appreciate our customers’ and our staff’s support as we navigate through this next phase together.


From East Coast Wings + Grill’s Facebook:



From Elizabeth’s Pizza’s Facebook:

📢Our esteemed loyal Elizabeth’s family,

Yesterday Gov. Cooper announced that restaurants can open at 50% capacity. After much consideration, we have decided to not reopen our dining room at this time to ensure the well-being of both our customers and staff. 🙏🏼

We will, however, continue to serve you delicious food in the safest and most efficient way possible. Curbside pickup, take-out and delivery are all still readily available for your convenience.

Before we know it, it will soon be time to see your smiling faces 😄– sharing in our wonderful dining experience. 🍝🥂

Please know that we miss you all very much 🤗, and will update you in the coming days on our dining room reopening.

#WinstonSalemStrong #Triadlocal


From Finnigan’s Wake’s Facebook:(thank goodness!!!!)

FINNIGAN’S IS COMING BACK!
We are so excited to get back to it and thank you all for your support during our absence.
Finnigan’s Wake is reopening for TAKEOUT, CURBSIDE PICKUP, and DELIVERY at 4 pm on Tuesday, June 2nd. Our hours, for now, will be Tuesday-Saturday, 4 pm-10 pm. We will continue reopening in phases so please check our website, Facebook, and Instagram for up-to-date information.
We have been evaluating the phases of reopening and believe that a slow, controlled opening is safest. We will start with takeout, curbside pickup, and delivery and plan for in-house dining in the near future.
The safety of our staff (“the kids”) is our first priority. We are listening to their concerns and factoring in their needs, as well as those of our beloved customers, as we move forward.
We will continue to exceed all recommended health and safety procedures as we move forward and will communicate those to you as we go. All employees will have their temperatures taken prior to their shift, and if showing any symptoms at any time, will be sent home immediately. They will be wearing gloves and masks while in the building, and strictly maintaining all hygiene measures and social distancing. We require that if you come in The Pub you wear a mask. All social distancing guidelines will be followed, by staff and customers. We will be sanitizing all human contact surfaces regularly, and after contact has been made.
We look forward to seeing, and feeding, you soon.
FW Pub
