Who’s Open, Who Delivers, and Who’s Offering Takeout

 

NOTE: Many Restaurants are recommending masks be warn through the first two weeks of January (at least) due to increased cases. We are doing out best to keep up on who is requiring masks, but while we wait to hear back from businesses, we recommend you bring masks just in case.

The State of Vermont has NOT put in place a mask mandate, nor have any towns in the NEK passed mask mandates.

But the persistant varients of the virus and on going staff shortages have made for interesting situations throughout the restaurant industry.

Many restaurants are recommending that patrons wear masks, some have returned to take out only, and sometimes there are last minute closers/returns to takeout/and reservation requirements due to Positive Covid tests or staff shortages.

Many restaurants are also dealing with supply shortages, meaning menu items are sometimes unavailable when deliveries are short.

Please be patient with local restaurants as they navigate these difficult situations.

WE DO OUR BEST to keep this information as accurate as possible. Please browse our Facebook page as well, we share any last min. closure we come across, and sometimes it takes a little while to update this page.

Below is a list of our NEK restaurants and what they are offering for services at this time. Information changes frequently so check back often!

Many restaurants are requiring reservations so we recommend calling ahead.

While restrictions have eased, it is important to check with the restaurant on their policies.
