It can’t be overstated that this is an incredibly challenging time for restaurants. From the shutdown in March to various reopening protocols and safety concerns for their employees, many of our favorite places have been forced to permanently close their doors.
All have been affected - from neighborhood spots to bars where you once drank way too much on your birthday. Here is a running list of all the spots that have closed during the pandemic, divided by neighborhood. If you know a place that should be included, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And if you’re looking for ways to show support, order carryout, tip well, and also let your local representative know that helping independent restaurants and workers survive this crisis is important to you. The Independent Restaurants Coalition has made it easy to ask your rep to support the Restaurants Act with this automatic email builder.
