Q: Where are you located and what precautions are you taking during this pandemic time?
Being a 5th generation Galvestonian, it was important to me to have my business on the island. My kitchen is located at 1508 39th St, Galveston, TX 77550. Food service has always had the strictest protocols for sanitation and safety. We practice a heightened version of that when we prepare food to make sure that it is safe for all of our guests.
Q: Can you offer a word of cheer that encourages everyone to be patient and look for better and safer times ahead!
During times of crisis you always find the helpers, the ones who continue to make their community a better place. You can be one of those people as well. You’ve seen the quote “we are all in this together” but to be honest, the only way we can get through this is together. Take time to turn off the news and get active in whatever you are passionate about from puppies to the elderly. There is always a way to stay safe and help out.
