The Reality of Reopening: Restaurateurs Share Their View from the Ground, Presented by Square

Monday, June 29 — 2:00 p.m. EST / 11:00 a.m. PST

Plexiglass partitions, limited capacity, reservations only, contact tracing: How are restaurants re-envisioning their operations post-pandemic to serve diners safely while staying afloat? And how does that vary from city to city across the U.S., where the impact of — and reaction to — the novel coronavirus has been anything but uniform?

Join Eater’s special correspondent Meghan McCarron for a discussion with Deborah VanTrece of Twisted Soul Cookhouse & Pours in Atlanta, Carlos Salgado of Taco María in LA, and Reyna Duong of Sandwich Hag in Dallas on what reopening in three distinct cities across the U.S. looks like. We’ll hear from business owners looking towards the next phase, as they discuss everything from implementing sanitary measures to considering worker safety to navigating the financial challenges of a reshaped dining scene.

Join the conversation on Monday, June 29, at 2:00 p.m. EST / 11:00 a.m. PST. This event will take place over Zoom; register below to secure a spot, receive a Zoom link prior to the event, and add the event to your calendar.
