Hey friends. We have some sad news. We found out this morning that one of our kitchen staff woke in the night with COVID-19 symptoms and went to the ER where they tested positive for the virus. The employee had previously worked on Wednesday and had been feeling fine until awaking in the night with symptoms. We are devastated and concerned for the employee and their family. We are also concerned for our staff as a whole, and out of an abundance of caution and the desire to protect the staff, their families and the community at large, we are going to close our doors and ask our staff to self-quarantine and monitor for symptoms. These safety measures are not required by the Health Department or CDC guidelines, but we feel this is the right decision for our company right now.
As we have shared over the past several months since COVID-19 disrupted all of our lives and livelihoods, we have taken precautions that we feel go above and beyond what is required. Among other safety measures, including mandatory masking, extensive sanitizing, asking customers to wear gloves and masks upon entering the building, and keeping our employee teams separated from one another, one of the decisions we made was to keep our inside dining rooms closed to the public.
We cannot over-state the importance we place on your health and safety, and we are committed to that regardless of the impact on our business.
All of our staff will be paid during these weeks while we ask them to self-quarantine, and we appreciate your support and prayers for our team member and his family during this stressful time.
As we travel this new territory, we know there will be bumps in the road. We appreciate your support and patience as we navigate it.

Today was so special & a crazy rainstorm was the perfect way to end it - I didn’t get a picture of the double rainbow, but we felt blessed for sure.

Since March 17 when we closed all of our dining rooms, we have missed you all so much. Like you, we miss the joyous sounds of a full dining room, the clatter of a clean rack of cocktail glasses being brought out of the dish room just in time to make that next margarita, the laughter of a shared joke between servers as they try to keep customers happy and well-fed. We miss having specials and watching customers enjoy them, we miss hosting local bands, we miss planning events and special menus for holidays and community festivals. We miss the family birthdays, awkward first dates, parents out with their tiny kids just hoping to make it through the meal without too many tears, colleagues out for a Friday night happy hour, catering weddings, and all of those moments that we are so lucky to get to share with you.
And so we, like you, are eager to go back to "normal" because these weeks have been so hard.
But stronger than that desire is our commitment to preserving the safety of our staff and customers. We are also committed to maintaining the Take-Out, Delivery, Dinners on the Porch and Grab & Go operation that we've been doing these past few months, and that takes a huge amount of energy, organization, space and people to operate in a safe manner. We will not lower our standards on that operation, even if it means that we're going to have to move slowly in terms of re-opening.
For now, we have made the decision to offer dining at our outside tables only. We will keep our dining rooms closed for the foreseeable future as we learn more about how to keep everyone safe, how to manage this new business model that all of us in the restaurant industry have ginned up overnight, and how to try to spark some of that restaurant magic from behind a mask and 6' away.
For now, we are excited to be able to take the small step of opening up our outside patios at The Porch this Saturday, and in a little while, at Alma. But it's going to be a little "extra," or, actually, just plain weird.
To get going, we have prepared a four page (!!!) Reservation Policy that I'm pretty sure is more detailed than the contract I signed to buy our house. It felt ridiculous to write it, it feels ridiculous to ask you to read it, and I'm really hoping that one day we can all look back and laugh about how you had to practically sign a pre-nup to go get some tacos. But this is the way forward for now, so even though it's a pain, we'll do it if it means getting one step closer to a better place.
So I hope you'll have patience and grace as we bumble forward. I know that many other restaurants in Winston are coming up with their own creative ideas to meet the new reality, and we're all cheering one another on. For some, opening up makes lots of sense and will be awesome, for others, staying closed is the only choice, while for others, a slow path forward with lots of restrictions and rules is the best plan. None of us has a crystal ball, but we're all trying so hard to welcome you back for the long term, even if that means staying closed right now. So have patience, give constructive feedback, help us keep one another safe, and let's do this thing in a way that we'll all be proud of at the end of the day.
In closing, I keep trying to think of a way to say "Thank You" that will convey what is really in my heart. When we closed our dining rooms on March 17, I didn't really think there was any way we'd survive to the other side. I know we're not on the other side yet, but every day I have woken up to emails, posts, letters in the mail, messages and countless displays of support that have buoyed up our little lifeboat to the point that there are some moments when we can really feel the wind at our back and the sun on our face.
Thank you a million times over. We are feeling #winstonstrong.
