Reopening America: Tally restaurants ‘adjust on the fly’

by Tallahassee Table

Since the pandemic caused sudden shutdowns in mid-March, restaurants have been caught in a whirlwind of sweeping change and dire circumstances.

To survive, most restaurants — including upscale places like Cypress, Sage and Mimi’s Table —   shifted immediately from nearly zero takeout business to 100 percent.

“It’s shown us we’re able to adjust on the fly,” said David Gwynn, chef/co-owner with wife Elizabeth of Cypress Restaurant, Grove Market Cafe and Vertigo Burgers and Fries. 

How much adjusting awaits? Now that the state is reopening, the big question is: What will dining look like in the future? 

Here’s a story I wrote for the Tallahassee Democrat’s “Reopening America” series. More food content to come.
