Gov. Greg Abbott said that restaurants could reopen on Friday at 25% capacity, but not all will do so. Here’s a look at what some Preston Hollow restaurants plan.
Jon Alexis, owner of TJ’s Seafood at Preston Royal told the Dallas Morning News he will continue to provide curbside to go but is not ready to open his dining room. “We are going to wait and see first and foremost if this is a viable, safe way for us to conduct our business for our staff and our customers,” he said. “A couple days ago we were told to cover our mouths going to Target. Today you’re telling me on Friday I can take somebody’s dirty fork that was in their mouth? I’m not saying they’re wrong. I’m no expert, but we’re going to wait and see.”
Nikky Phinyawatana, owner of Asian Mint plans to keep her dining room closed, but will continue takeout and her chef to go program. Fat Straws also plans to keep its shop closed for dine-in, but you can still pick up a boba tea to-go.
Nosh Bistro plans to open for dinner service and Sunday brunch on May 1.
