Good to See You, Connecticut Restaurants Last Updated 8/20

It's so good to see Connecticut restaurants opening back up! From Caribbean cuisine to lobster rolls, we're enjoying all our favorite flavors. But it's more than just a delicious meal you can expect from restaurants; they're serving up safety too. In fact, many are upholding The Connecticut Restaurant Promise. Here are just a few of the new protocols:

  • Tables are now at least 6 feet apart and restaurant capacity has been reduced
  • Items that could pass through the hands of many different guests, like menus or salt and pepper shakers, have been replaced with single use, digital, or frequetly sanitized options
  • All employees are required to wear a facemask and gloves, and gloves must be replaced frequently
  • Customers are required to wear masks, but they can be removed while you are seated at your table
  • Sanitizer is available and accessible

You can find out more about safely reopened restaurants here. To get a closer look at how Connecticut restaurants are providing a safe and fun experience for diners, check out this video which brings you right into the heart of a few great spots.
