the restaurants in our downtown don't plan on closing , oddly all 3 of the main ones are currently renovatingI know we are going to maybe lose some places (bars and restaurants) that were not doing too great in the first place. We as a people may not be living into our 90s and 100s as much. Bummer.
2 went thru nearly full renovations ( 1 had started before covid and was just getting ready to open , other started once covid hit , guess decided since they were closed anyways it be a good time to renovate )
and other needed to rebuilt entire outdoor patio after it was damaged in a major spring flood in 2019
so apparently they expect things to be busy in the near future , although its likely they'll be forced to operate at 50 % capacity and with many new restrictions for some time to come
we haven't had any restaurants close yet in my area although I'd anticipate some will close by fall or winter when things slow down and bills become too much and a general realisation its time to move on
