St. Louis restaurants prepare for coronavirus’ effect on business

“For the rest of the season, it’s going to be hard to make sales,” Brazell said.

Brazell said he’s doing everything possible to keep staff and customers safe, and all of his restaurants have ramped up preventative measures: staff at all locations are wearing gloves while bussing tables and are not allowed to work if they present symptoms. Hand sanitizing stations have been placed throughout each location.

At Tamm, guests are being asked to throw away their own cups and trash, and straws are no longer offered. Brazell is also promoting Byrd & Barrel’s drive-thru for customers who want to minimize contact and will offer no-contact delivery via Postmates.

“We’re taking every measure we can,” he said. “We will do everything we can to provide a safe environment for people to enjoy our food and hospitality.”

Herbie’s and Kingside Diner owner Aaron Teitelbaum has also instituted hand sanitizing stations in his restaurants and is offering curbside pickup service at Herbie’s and all Kingside for the duration of the outbreak.
