ALTHOUGH SOME LOCAL RESTAURANTS REMAINED OPEN DURING LATE MARCH AND APRIL, SOME CLOSED COMPLETELY. NOW, THEY’RE REOPENING FOR TAKEOUT AND DELIVERY.
After Fête closed a month ago because of the COVID-19 pandemic, owner Chuck Bussler and his team made the difficult decision to reopen for takeout and delivery on Monday. As Bussler was taking down the wood used to board up the restaurant, drivers honked their horns and cheered. They, too, were excited to see the restaurant open its doors again.
“It felt really heartwarming that people believe in what we do,” he says. “We’re really grateful we have so many people—regulars, friends and families—rallying behind us.”
