    Keeping your restaurant and staff during the global crisis

    I guess I have to reverse what I said above about masks. Now they are saying that masks are effective. That can change again tomorrow...

    Keeping your restaurant and staff during the global crisis

    Given that the effectiveness of masks is questionable anyway. I thought that masks were being reserved for medical personnel?

    Yes. Why bother with gloves at all? Employees need to be properly instructed on food handling and hygiene. When they understand how it's supposed to work they won't do stupid things like that. Right now all they know is that they are supposed to wear gloves.

    porcelain Dutch oven?

    I think you are taking this way too seriously. This isn't rocket surgery, it's meatloaf!

    porcelain Dutch oven?

    Wow! I would have to sell that meatloaf for probably $30 to break even. Better be worth it. I don't even use a pan. I mix with my hands and beat it into a loaf. It goes into the oven on a bun pan with a rack with parchment paper under the loaf. I fold the parchment paper in half lengthwise and...

    Keeping your restaurant and staff during the global crisis

    Might be nice to offer a free daily meal to any of your staff that you had to lay off. You know it's going to be hard to live for them without a pay check.

    Keeping your restaurant and staff during the global crisis

    That suggestion has been made locally here on social media. Everybody is encouraged to purchase take-out twice a week. Truly sad though is that everyone prepped for St.Patrick's day before the closings were ordered. One pub/restaurant is giving away corned beef and cabbage dinners until they...

    COVID19 Keeping Customers Safe

    As of 8PM tonight, all restaurants and bars in NY, CT and NJ are ordered to close except for takeout. The liquor law has been amended to allow the takeout of alcohol as long as this is in effect. I think there is going to be a run on plastic cups and lids. What's happening here is that they...

    That's the way I took it. But who knows, maybe to this generation it's a compliment. :cool:

    COVID19 Keeping Customers Safe

    Not hearing anything here about what we are doing to try and keep our customers safe. Only complaints about how business is down. The largest outbreak in the Country is in New Rochelle, NY that is said to have originated from exposure to a caterer who...

    Why do you say that? You're not taking this seriously are you. Oh, I guess you are now.

    COVID19 Keeping Customers Safe

    I've had another thought. Thinking about running copies of the menu off on the copy machine and giving those to customers. They can either keep them or we can throw them away when they are done ordering. This way it's less work for us wiping down menus and customers know that nobody has handled...

    Not hearing anything here about what we are doing to try and keep our customers safe. Only complaints about how business is down. The largest outbreak in the Country is in New Rochelle, NY that is said to have originated from exposure to a caterer who had an infected employee. So are we paying...
