Reopening: INTERIOR DINING

The number of tables has been limited to comply with the state’s 50% occupancy guidance; therefore, reservations are required and the dress code will still be enforced. We cannot guarantee service if you do not have a reservation, even if there is an open table. Obviously, we will try to accommodate everyone, but we still have limited staffing.  Seating is limited to six (6) people per table.

For interior dining, members will enter through the normal entrance (east door of bar). The bar area will serve as a waiting area. All interior food service will take place upstairs. Please respect the roped off boundary of the bar. Orders can be placed in the bar and drinks will be served at a separate table. Please do not move tables or chairs.

All dining tables will be bare and cleaned after each use. Plastic ware and disposable plates will be used unless you order a steak. Condiments will be served in individual packets, upon request.

The cafe and bar staff will continue to wear face masks.
