Update 3/31/2020: It's been a week since our temporary closure and it looks like it may be a bit longer yet as the Federal Government has issued an extension on the "Stay at Home" directive until the end of April. Governor Inslee suggested yesterday that state wide extension may be pending as well. We will monitor the situation and follow the timelines given. We are doing other work at times within the restaurant and do hear the phone ring so we know our guests are anxious to get food and hopes that we are going to reopen soon. Stay tuned and we will update as changes happen.
On Monday March 23rd Governor Inslee issued a "Stay at Home" proclamation to be in effect for at least two weeks. This is in response to the increasing numbers of the public being diagnosed positive with Coronavirus and related deaths. Public distancing has not been taken seriously by many in the communities throughout the state so the Governor felt compelled to issue the proclamation.
This was a hard decision to make however the management at The Amarillo Restaurant and Tavern want to support the efforts to limit the spread of the virus and keep our staff and patrons safe. Therefore we have decided to follow suit with many other health conscious business owners and close our facility to the public until further notice. Currently we are anticipating a two week closure however that can change as we learn more in the weeks ahead. Stay tuned for further announcements.
We want to thank all of our guests who have supported us during our recently imposed limited to-go service and all of the well-wishing emails, texts and posts. We are truly blessed to be a part of such a caring and supportive community and look forward to serving you again in the near future.
