ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — Enterprise kicks off its annual Restaurant Week Friday, August 14, but it may look a little different in a world of COVID-19.
The week will cover ten days, of which each day will have a different theme.
This comes as the directors of restaurant week hope to show people new items to try and that the restaurants are taking precautions to stay safe.
“Super important to support our local restaurant tours and the hospitality industry in our communities because they’re they ones that are supporting the community too.” Chamber of Commerce Director Erin Grantham said.
“So it’s very important that we do this restaurant week in order to show them that we appreciate them and support them. Also to show the community they are taking safety measures to make sure everything is clean, wipped down, social distancing, and all that.” Grantham said.
One of the restaurants being celebrated, Cutts Restaurant, is listed in 100 Dishes to Eat in Alabama, and has been making it through the pandemic by taking precautions and holding onto loyal customers.
“So everybody kind of does their own thing, and everybody is making it work.” General Manager Ashton Cutts said. “But they’re doing it together, and this has always been a family restaurant so it’s really nice that the families are still coming in and eating and we still get to see all our regular customers. I’ve been rather proud of how people have responded to it.”
So, even a pandemic cannot stop Enterprise from celebrating it’s community restaurants.
