A restaurant from Queens found the perfect way to roast New York’s, Governor Cuomo recently.
According to reports, the Governor implemented another indoor dining ban. Certainly, this was another blow to the state’s already crippled restaurant industry. For this reason, plenty of eateries weren’t happy with the news.
Hence, what better way to protest than serving a meal in the snow? Yes, this Queens restaurant did the unthinkable. As the city received its first major snowfall, one fed-up restauranteur nixed his indoor setup.
And that meant serving a meal in the drastic freezing outdoors. With temperatures reaching minus and bone-chilling winds hitting the face, the owner hosted his own restaurant’s employees.
Here, the ultimate aim revolved around seeing how an outdoor meal would feel before they took on reservations for customers. Undoubtedly, the epic snowstorm proved too much for the owner and his employees to bear.
Rocco Sacramone is the proud owner of Trattoria L’incontra, located in Astoria. He treated his 3 employees to an incredible feast of pizza. Tomatoes, mozzarella, and lots of wine. Unfortunately, everything was on point, except for the freezing outdoor setting.
The owner complained about how his legs immediately turned into logs-numb and frozen as ever. Clearly, the outdoor dining option wasn’t something he was willing to implement at his place.
Certainly, the restaurant is still receiving hundreds of calls for reservations. However, the owner refuses to make his waiters and customers suffer in the chilling snow. Putting up a picture with plenty of hashtags, the owner captioned it with ‘As you can see, we’re having our outdoor dinner.’
Currently, the city’s Sanitation department rolled out stricter guidelines after a surge in COVID-19 cases.
And that means no more indoor dining.Therefore, restaurants are only allowed to offer outdoor seating on the sidewalks. But with the fiercest snowstorms yet to come, eateries in the Big Apple have a huge challenge ahead of them.
