We were at the park last night, and oddly, Howl at the moon looked as if it were about to open. It was fully light, there were two bartenders inside and some security, it appears as if all the furniture/chairs/tables/pianos were all still in place, and about 8 guests were lined up outside. This was approximately 7pm. I thought it was already supposed to be closed? I'm quite confused.
That said, Tony Roma's below looks relatively torn up in comparison. But HatM seemed open for business. Was it a one time only special event, or is closing later on?
The outdoor seating options they have look really limited... about 10 tables, total (including some tables only for two). That ain't goinna cover operating costs.
All the nearby space is currently being used by both Johnny Rockets and Antojitos. Not really worth opening, IMO.
This place was designed and built before our current crisis.
One of the biggest issues right now for all businesses is training. Current guidelines are that people can't be in close proximity required for so much training for more than a few minutes even with face coverings and face shields. You can't train a restaurant staff remotely, there's a lot of hands on which may not be able to happen currently.
