Treat yourself to a meal out that’s in

Posted

The restaurant business has never been easy. And now it is made more perilous as people are eating at home more. (A lot more.)

In hope of inspiring our readers to support local restaurants and eateries by splurging on a take-out meal, we asked area business how they were doing.

“We’re trying our best to keep Main Street alive.”— Joan and Ron Santo, owners of Narrowsburg Proper & Narrowsburg Fine Wine and Spirits

“We are staying positive through this rough time, and being supported/supporting our local community.” — David & Maria Lorenzo, owners of Lorenzo’s Bistro in Jeffersonville, NY

“Business is changing daily. Overall, we have gone from being 70 percent bar to 30 percent food to the reverse. We are blessed with a very flexible and dedicated staff who have been able to go with the flow.” — Johnny Pizzolato, co-owner of Stickett Inn in Barryville, NY

“We’ve started offering family meals and they’re a big hit.” — Lauren Seikaly, owner of Tavern on Main in Jeffersonville, NY

“Besides our delicious baked goods, we now have soup, sandwiches and salad options to-go.” — Lauren Seikaly, owner of Jeffersonville Bake Shop.

“Devastation: I lost all my employees and business plunged by 80 percent. Just doing what I can to adapt and survive this.” Valerie Gregoretti, owner of Tusten Cup in Narrowsburg, NY.

“We closed for the safety of our staff and customers. We miss everyone dearly.” — Tara Brust and Courtney Raven, owners of Bethel Market Café.

“Pivot, provide and protect. We are very grateful both for our customers and our suppliers.  We will get through this together.” Lori Grant, co-owner of Spruce Home Goods in Callicoon, NY.

“Everybody has to eat. We are staying open because we are part of the community.” — AC of Pete’s Market in Narrowsburg, NY

“Being open is keeping my chef employed and being there for our locals.” — Annie’s Ruff Cut in Cochecton, NY

“We go to work every day to do our jobs. It helps us and our customers feel more normal to be able to go out and get some food. It gives people something to look forward to I think.” — Kerri and Alex Mellon, owners of Back to Bakers in Barryville, NY

So give yourself something to look forward to. Check out what these folks are dishing out. And check out “What’s Open” at www.riverreporter.com/whatsopen.
