Let’s help our local restaurants survive. Buy take out, delivery, and gift cards when you can!

As the L.A. virus mandates continues to cripple local businesses, restaurants are taking another massive hit.  After spending months pivoting to accommodate the deemed safe outdoor dining, including investing in tents, new patio construction, picnic tables and chairs, masks for staff etc., they are now being forced to close outdoor dining as it is now deemed not safe.  Huh?

Let’s hope this ends REAL soon!  In the meanwhile, if you have the means, let’s eat local take out and buy gift cards as gifts. Check out this list of 20+ local restaurants open for take-out and delivery!

Gift cards also help support the restaurant as they deal with the challenges of the Covid 19 crisis. Contact them directly.
