Friends and family,
Earlier this week, we shared updates on how we, as a Jackson Hole business, employer and member of the community, are doing our part to ensure our guests, employees and community are safe among COVID-19. This is an ever-changing situation, and one we have been closely monitoring by the minute.
As I mentioned in my last email, it’s never been our stance to sit back and follow suit. With a close eye on local and regional developments and with our employees’, guests’ and community’s well-being in mind, we have made the hard but (we believe) responsible decision to temporarily close our restaurants to full service dining starting Monday, March 16. The changes in operations are scheduled for 14 days, but will be updated as the situation continues to develop. In the meantime, we will be utilizing all resources available to ensure our employees are taken care of during this closure.
While our restaurants themselves will be closed to our traditional service, we will be offering to-go food daily from Rendezvous Bistro, The Kitchen, Bin22, Roadhouse Pub & Eatery, Il Villaggio Osteria and Bar Enoteca. To-go beer will also be available from the Roadhouse Taproom, while Taproom service will be closed. Guests will have the opportunity to support our Fine Dining Restaurant Group employees through this difficult and uncertain time via an optional 20% addition on all to-go orders. To-go orders may be placed by calling the restaurant directly. The Bin22 and Bodega shops will remain open, but will be implementing social distancing measures. Whether during the to-go process or within our shops, we will continue to follow CDC guidelines and implement additional cleanliness measures.
In addition to creating a fund for our employees, we will be working with local organizations to donate unused products to support families experiencing food uncertainty during area closures.
We are proud to be a Jackson Hole business. As a locally-owned, hospitality-focused business in the heart of a community driven by tourism, there are sure to be challenging times ahead. But at the end of the day, nothing is more important to us than our community and the family, friends, neighbors, guests, employees and visitors that make up the tight network of our Valley. Navigating through these challenging times and ensuring we are doing the best for our community, we will continue to remind ourselves that with challenge comes opportunity and with adversity comes strength.
We’re all in this together, so let us know if there’s anything we can do to help. I look forward to the time we’re able to raise a glass together again.
Sending you all the best,
Gavin Fine on behalf of Fine Dining Restaurant Group and Colby Cox on behalf of Roadhouse Pub & Eatery and Roadhouse Brewing Co.
