Local restaurants move to take-out, close dining rooms

JACKSON, Wyo. — UPDATE: Snake River Brewing announced it will also close its dining room and offer to-go food and beer.

Fine Dining Restaurant Group announced this morning that all of its properties will close its dining rooms and instead offer to-go food for at least 14 days.

Phoenix and the Dragon will follow suit and close its dining room. Owners are working on a “contact-free delivery program,” and in the meantime will offer contact-free curbside pickup. It’s a scary move for a small business, P&D owners Eric and Zarina Saka admitted in an announcement this morning, but ” we feel it is the RESPONSIBLE decision for the health of our community and ourselves.”

Rendezvous Bistro, The Kitchen, Bin22, Roadhouse Pub & Eatery, II Villaggio Osteria and Bar Enoteca will all offer daily to-go food while their dining rooms are closed. To-go beer will also be available from the Roadhouse Taproom, but Taproom service will be closed.

To support FDRG employees whose wages are dependent on tips and service, guests can pay an optional 20% service charge on all to-go orders.

“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,” Fine Dining Owner Gavin Fine and Roadhouse Founder Colby Cox wrote. “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.”
