As the community and country adapts to the new reality caused by the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve put together a list of local restaurants & bars that offer take-out and delivery options for those of you that will be indoors for awhile and to help our friends in the local food & hospitality industry.
Effective March 17th thru March 30th, all dine-in food/beverage services at all restaurants, bars, cafes are to be shut down. Drive-thru and take-out can remain open. The Governor says that in two weeks that she’ll revisit the issue and decide whether that directive should continue or if she’ll need to ban take-out, too.
We recognize the need to avoid public spaces with mass gatherings. Please consider ordering take-out, delivery or purchasing a gift card from a local restaurant to help lessen the inevitable hard hit that social distancing will have on our favorite local eateries and bars.
We recognize many restaurants are adapting to what’s going on a minute to minute basis, making it very difficult for us and them to keep up with updates.
So beginning today (March 25th) we’re letting restaurants, cafes, and other food establishments update as often as they need and on their own. Meaning restaurants, bars, cafes, and other food establishments will be able to update their list as often as needed. Many restaurants have already been granted access to edit this spreadsheet. If you need access, email Ryan@whatsupnewp.com.
*This info is user-submitted by restaurants and business owners.
