Restaurants are masters at creating new food and new ideas.

 

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic limiting restaurant services, restaurants have found unique ways to keep their businesses afloat.

 

New social distancing orders prompted restaurateurs to be more creative in redesigning their dining rooms for maximum seating capacity.

 

Many eateries such as Big City Diner, Chengdu Taste, GyuKaku and Ruby Tuesday are using QR codes as options to view their menus. QR codes and apps help to provide ordering information vs having physical menus anymore.

 

Some restaurants have also turned their TV monitors that used to show sports or news into large digital menus around restaurants as another contactless method to view their food options.

 

Restaurants have added grocery items & seal spirits to their menus in order to increase their takeout options.

 

To ensure our local farming community is supported, food establishments designed their menus using local products

 

Catering is also another popular option. Restaurants such as Outback Steakhouse, Ruby Tuesday, and Zippys offer catering services in order for customers to get their food without contact. Businesses have been able to provide this service by bringing food to a customer’s car trunk instead of having the customer retrieve it themselves.

 

With many people still following Governor Ige’s Safer At Home mandate, restaurants have added family meal packs to their menus. These meal packages are created to feed families or residents occupying a single home.

 

Although restaurant services are still hindered by COVID-19, businesses are continuously adapting to whatever situation they are in.

 

As restaurants open-up safely, the Hawaii Restaurant Association is here to support our food service industry.

 

May you & your loved ones continue to be safe and healthy!
