Restaurant Owners Frustrated Over Wait To Fully Reopen


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Some business owners in Massachusetts are eager to get fully back to business, following the start of Phase One of Gov. Baker's economic reopening plan.

That includes restaurant owners, some of whom say they are ready to serve customers in-house, despite the state's guidance to only allow curbside pickup and delivery during Phase One.

Steve DiFillippo, owner of the Davio's Steakhouse chain, told WBZ NewsRadio's Dan Rea that constant cleaning has long been part of the way restaurants operate, so he believes customers should already have the option to dine inside.

"People are nervous to come out," said DiFillippo, "but if you think about it, we're probably the safest place to go because we've been doing it forever."

Restaurants will be able to reopen dining areas during Phase Two of the state's reopening plan, with social distancing and capacity restrictions in place.
