Create & Innovate

Restaurants are getting special permits to have sidewalk and curbside spaces for safe-distanced outside dining. Even scaffolding didn’t deter Patsy’s. Well done, all. Photo by Gwen H.

Last Supper?

March 6, 2020. Birthday dinner in my favorite booth with my two favorite guys at our traditional mainstay Gramercy Tavern. Danny Meyer has since announced that he would not be re-opening this or any of his fine dining restaurants until there is a vaccine for Covid19. His hallmark focus on service and ambience cannot be achieved with mask-wearing, socially distanced chefs, sommeliers & waitstaff. So. Maybe that was a last supper for some time to come.          

Taking It to the Streets!

New York should partially open its streets, using now-empty bike and/or car lanes for pedestrians so sidewalks can be used for al fresco dining. Safe – distancing outside will bring customers, income & jobs to neighborhoods.

UWS Take-Out List

Many restaurants are remaining open during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis for take-out and/or delivery. Santa Fe is delivering enchiladas and such with margaritas. Many UWS restaurants are adding alcohol and happy hour options for take-out as well. An updated list can be found here: WEST SIDE RAG
