I find the changes wrought by corona virus varies widely between restaurants. My favorite breakfast place has hardly batted an eye. They have blue tape crosses on off limits tables and booths, and require customers to wear masks when not sitting down. Other than that the menu is completely the same, except that you can scan a little taped on card to download it to your iphone. But all the same food is there.
My second favorite breakfast place is gone now.
Another favorite has gone to mostly pick-up and delivery, but all the dishes are there.
Yesterday I stopped by my favorite Vietnamese place looking forward to their lemon cured beef salad.
They have most of their tables outside now, but their extensive menu is gone. They are only serving their combo rice platter, their most basic beef pho, bahn mi steak sandwiches, and a variety of spring rolls. The cruet stand with all the condiments are gone. They just give you a little dish of dipping sauce with your meal. They also still give you a dish of bean sprouts and mint leaves. I had the pho, and felt depressed. It’s good pho, but I wanted my beef salad.
2020 sucks. How are your restaurants holding up? I know different states have different rules, but tell me anyway.
