Safety Updates

Update as of January 3, 2022

A new mandate is now in place for all restaurants in The City of Philadelphia. Proof of Vaccination and photo ID is required to eat  or drink indoors. We still offer take out service and outdoor seating.

Update as of November, 2020 

We are back to take out and outdoor dining for at least 6 weeks. Masks are required at all times when on the premises except when seated to eat or drink. We are continuing to follow the cleaning protocols set by the City including frequent sanitizing of all tables, chairs and touch surfaces.  We are striving to keep our employees and customers safe during Covid.
