A Step Towards Normalacy

For months my husband and I have anticipated this. We have discussed this back and forth, imagining what it would look like. And, like everything else you anticipate as much as we have, it happened very differently than expected. I am talking about eating in a restaurant.

 

 

 

On Saturday night, we took a ride on our friend’s boat. It was just my husband and I and the couple who owned the boat, so we were able to stay socially distant. The plan was that we would head to a favorite restaurant, “Jordan’s Lobster,” get lobster rolls to go, eat them on the boat, and then head to see local fireworks. This was the plan we all discussed prior and all felt comfortable with.

 

 

 

 

When we docked at Jordan’s my husband jokingly said to the hostess, “How long for a table?” It was an hour and half wait for an outside table but then she said, “If you want a table inside, I can seat you immediately.” Shocked at her response, we all looked at one another, and saw we were all nodding our heads. Our meal of lobster rolls on the boat quickly turned to lobster dinners in a restaurant. (Anyone who knows me knows that lobster is my favorite).

 

 

 

 

 

With masks on, we followed the hostess indoors to a table. The tables were clearly properly spaced, and she seated us at a large booth. The menus were disposable and the waitstaff wore masks throughout. I felt safe, relaxed, and extremely comfortable throughout the meal. As always at Jordan’s, the eight-pound lobster my husband and I shared was delicious. And yes, there were leftovers for a great lunch the next day.

 

 

 

My husband and I took an unexpected step towards normalcy by eating in a restaurant. Have you? What was your experience?

    As you know Rona ... Victoria and I ate outside at our favorite restaurant last night. First time in almost 4 months. The wait staff wore masks and sanitized everything prior to bringing it to the table. When we left, we watched them sanitize our table and chairs. All making for a very comfortable evening. We wouldn’t hesitate to go back and plan on going at least once a week now.

    Still not ready to do that, but glad that you enjoyed and dined responsibly. Unfortunately as I’ve driven by restaurants I’ve seen things that make me very uncomfortable.

    That’s awesome! As Paul said, last night was our first night too - at the restaurant which was our last meal out in March! Our local neighborhood Italian restaurant. We sat outside, and our waitress wore a mask as did the staff. They sanitized the silverware and credit cards, everything. In addition to being super clean and conscientious, what struck us was how happy the servers and chef were to see us. It has been so hard for so many business owners, especially restaurants. all in all, it was an amazing, relaxing and beautiful night. (Your 8 lb lobster!!! Yummmmmm!)

    I'm afraid I'm still tentative -- but soon.

    We did everyday in Florida. I reported daily blogs in City Data.com on which places took it seriously and which didn't. Very different mindset there and possibly why it is spreading so quickly now.
