You Come First

You Probably won't read all of this, but it'll likely answer your questions if you're curious.

Covid-19 is still a part of our life, and there are state guidelines that every restaurant is given. WE TAKE THESE SERIOUSLY. We've carefully reviewed and applied these guidelines, because it's the right thing to do and we care about the safety of you and our staff. And we know, there are lots of feelings both ways about things like masks and distancing, (and after spending entire shifts in facemarks, we totally get it.) but we don't want the months of quarantine to repeat themselves. We could pack the place out, forget safeguards and rake in money while putting everyone at risk, but that wouldn't be cool (or legal, or safe.) Here's Just some of the ways we're keeping you safe.
