    HOUSTON, TX -- The Marini family has been serving delicious Argentinian empanadas to Houston, Texas since 1971. They still use the same recipe from Grandma and make 1,200 to 1,500 a day at their restaurant, the Original Marini's Empanada House. But it was not always easy. Marcello Marini moved to the United States in 1967 to work as a journalist. By 1971, he opened the family's first location and families flocked to the restaurant to get sweet and savory empanadas. But in 1985, the building was ruined in a fire and the family was left with nothing. Determined to rebuild, years later Marini retired from television and collected his savings to reopen the restaurant. They're now one of the most iconic Houston restaurants and customers love their savory options like the "beef gaucho" and "chicken diablo".To see menu, hours and locations, click here.

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday said he would not reopen indoor dining in New York City despite the infection rate being less than one percent for weeks in a row now because, he said, it would double the number of bars currently open and there is no one to enforce social distancing standards.  The reasoning came after a conglomerate of bar and restaurant owners sued the state for $2billion in damages, claiming they were being unfairly shackled and stopped from making money.  New York City - which has more bars and restaurants than any other city in the US - remains the only metropolis in the world that is yet to resume indoor dining.  It is also the only place in the state of New York that has not been allowed to welcome diners inside again.  As colder weather approaches, outdoor dining - which has only been an...
    Only a handful of restaurants currently represent Denver's soul food scene, but there was a time when choices were more abundant for dressing up for Friday supper or Sunday lunch at Black-owned restaurants. One of those, which ran for more than half a century, was Pierre's Supper Club, owned and operated by Lawrence Pierre. Pierre passed away at the end of August and services were held at St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Church last week, but his 70-year-old son, Valcour "Val" Pierre, still carries on the soul food tradition. The younger Pierre says his father's restaurant opened in 1947 at West First Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard before eventually settling in at 2157 Downing Street (its second move) twenty years later. Lawrence ran Pierre's Supper Club there until he sold it in 2003; the new owner closed it three years later. Val recalls helping his dad at the restaurant when he...
    Unemployed city restaurant workers are banging down doors to find work in the Hamptons as the dining scene there explodes thanks to fleeing Manhattanites. But working in the luxurious beach hamlets also presents a unique set of hardships, especially for restaurant workers with young children and apartments in NYC. Felix, who asked that his surname be withheld, lost his job in March as a waiter at Serafina, a trendy Italian eatery on the Upper East Side. He didn’t qualify for unemployment insurance, and it wasn’t until July that he found work again as restaurants on the Long Island shore reopened their doors.

    When the coronavirus threatened to end buffet-style restaurant dining, the leaders at VitaNova Brands, which at the time only offered all-you-can-eat feasting, evolved quickly to save their company from permanently closing. “Like many of our competitors, the buffets would have been decimated,” said Jason Kemp, co-founder and president of VitaNova Brands. “Instead, we united as an organization to innovate and launch new concepts.” The job was made tougher when, shortly after the economy locked down to slow the spread of the virus, the FDA issued guidelines that specifically called to discontinue self-service buffets. Shortly after the FDA’s announcement, food columnist Jonathan Maze wrote that “it might be premature to say that the buffet is dead, but it seems likely to go into a coma for a while.” By May, the buffet-style restaurant Souplantation, which had operated for 42 years, permanently closed all of its 97 locations.

    Basically every aspect of modern life has been touched by the coronavirus pandemic, and the restaurant industry is probably one that has been most significantly affected.

According to CNBC, Burger King’s two new restaurant designs will be as “touchless” as possible, with conveyor belts delivering food to customers, parking bays with solar panels where food will be delivered directly to your car and multiple drive-thru lanes, including one dedicated to delivery drivers.

The owner of Butcher & The Boar says the Hennepin Avenue restaurant had closed, effective immediately. Owner Doug Van Winkle says that employees were notified of the closure Monday night. He said multiple factors were in play in the decision to close the restaurant. “Just too much against us … pandemic, social unrest and crime, high costs of operating in downtown, no additional federal aid,” Van Winkle told WCCO’s Jason DeRusha.

    How Will Hudson Yards Survive the Pandemic? So asked a recent New York Times headline. It will survive by being great. But don’t count on any favors from the babbling intelligentsia that hates everything about it, from the platform it stands on to the air its mighty skyscrapers breathe. Sniping at Hudson Yards might have been harmless fun a year ago, when the complex was slammed for everything including the public toilets. But the now-lonely, $28 billion complex atop a rail yard needs all the love we can give it. To the property’s haters, the recent closing of the Thomas Keller TAK Room restaurant spelled delicious doom. To me, it just meant losing my favorite $25 cheeseburger. But those who’d like to see the whole of Hudson Yards slide into the Hudson River now think they smell blood in the water. The development will make it through the nightmare, but...

    It’s been more than six weeks since indoor dining in the city was placed on pause — again. Meanwhile, officials have rolled out plans for reopening schools, bowling alleys and other venues. It’s long past time restaurant and bar owners saw a similar roadmap to reopening, which could mean the life or death of their businesses. These owners are truly desperate. They were all set for indoor service at 50 percent occupancy under Phase Three of the reopening back on July 6. (Restaurants elsewhere in the state have been serving customers inside since June 17.) And by now, the city’s coronavirus infection rate has dropped to less than 1 percent, near the lowest in the nation. Credit the state’s lockdowns and its careful reopening plans. Officials, and New Yorkers, appear to have flattened the curve. That doesn’t mean the crisis is over — it’s vital we continue to remain vigilant....
    Cashiers at the Chipotle restaurant chain have been rounding off customers’ tabs a little too well, according to a lawsuit. Some of the chain’s locations in Pennsylvania have been keeping the change by hundreds of thousands of dollars, the suit claims, KDKA-TV of Pittsburgh reported. The state attorney general’s office has received at least seven complaints, reports said. Corporate bosses are likely behind the move, a lawyer told the station. “It has become very clear that this is a top-down directive from the corporation, this is how they should handle the situation,” Frank Salpietro said. One customer in Hampton, Pa., said she received $4 change on a bill of $15.51 instead of receiving $4.49 after paying with a $20 bill, KDKA reported. A restaurant employee simply withheld the remaining 49 cents, she claimed. Another customer, in Pine, Pa., received $11 change on a bill of $8.72 instead of receiving...

    The James Beard Foundation will not announce any more winners for its prestigious food industry awards in 2020 and is canceling the 2021 awards, a decision affecting a class of D.C.-area nominees that includes one restaurant and several chefs. The New York-based nonprofit’s decision was made in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and its potentially devastating consequences for the hospitality industry. The Independent Restaurant Coalition, formed earlier this year to advocate for targeted federal financial assistance for the restaurant industry, estimates that up to 85% of independent restaurants are at risk of closing due to the pandemic’s impact on their operations. “In short, an honor which we know is held in high regard, at the moment, feels minor when compared to the dire situation we are in,” explained Clare Reichenbach, the foundation’s CEO, in a statement. She added, “We look forward to bringing the Awards back when the industry...

Before the coronavirus hit Texas earlier this year, Eric Silverstein celebrated one year of opening his newest restaurant, Bar Peached, in Austin. But ever since the pandemic led to business shutdowns and the public’s fear of catching the virus, business at Silverstein’s three restaurants has plunged. Sales fell dramatically in April during a monthlong statewide shutdown. The Peached Tortilla location at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport remains closed. While loans under Congress’ Paycheck Protection Program helped, Silverstein said they “weren’t a cure-all.” He cut the hours of employees, reduced salaries and laid off workers — including letting go 85% of his hourly catering employees. “We had numerous weddings and corporate events cancel and reschedule and so we went from our peak months — March, April, May, June — the best months...

    Saturday, Fox News Channel’s Jeanine Pirro opened her program by laying out the importance of the November election and contrasting the two presidential tickets. According to Pirro, much of what has occurred in the last few months could be the norm if Americans opt to elect for Vice President Joe Biden as president. Transcript as follows: PIRRO: You’re being conned. The biggest fallacy in America today just might surprise you. The truth is the divide in this country is not about right versus wrong or law and order versus chaos. Quite simply, fundamentally, it’s about the left versus the right. You know, there was that moment after the killing of George Floyd when all Americans came together and said never again, but legitimate and constitutionally protected protests in support of black lives were hijacked by left-wing progressives determined to create chaos and ultimately take down America as we know it....

He said in the morning, as early as 6 a.m. Thursday, the bird was drawing a lot of attention from people driving by as it was sitting on top of a chiminea-type structure. “People were stopping their cars and walking up to it and getting within maybe 50-100 feet of the bird and it was just sitting there,” McAleer said. “It wasn’t moving at all really. It was turning its head but it wasn’t trying to fly away or acting scared so we knew that something was not right with the bird.” McAleer said he then posted...
    The Fat RadishSource: Steve Freihon The Fat Radish was supposed to celebrate its tenth anniversary in October.  But now, after months of uncertainty about its future, the restaurant known for its farm-to-table British food is shutting its doors forever, joining the scores of New York restaurants that have decided to close permanently.  Operating a restaurant in New York has always been difficult, but the pandemic introduced many new challenges, which some owners have found insurmountable. And while sales are slowly recovering, thanks to takeout, delivery and outdoor dining, Toast data found that average daily revenue for New York City restaurants is still down 68% from the year-ago period and lagging national declines of just 33%. Industry experts estimate that as many as one in three restaurants will not reopen. In July, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo indefinitely postponed reopening indoor dining, which proved to be the death knell for The Fat...

    A composite image of late TV chef and presenter Anthony Bourdain, and actor Russell Crowe. Getty/Getty Actor Russell Crowe donated $5,000 to save a restaurant destroyed in last week's Beirut explosion in honor of the late chef Anthony Bourdain. Bourdain, who died in 2018, dined at Le Chef in 2006 on his show "No Reservations," calling it "a legendary spot."

Crowe confirmed he made the donation on Twitter, after a cofounder of the crowdfunder mused whether a donor named Russell Crowe was the Oscar winner.  "On behalf of Anthony Bourdain. I thought that he would have probably done so if he was still around," Crowe tweeted. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Actor Russell Crowe said on Wednesday that he was behind a...

    New York (CNN Business)Last summer, Adam Weisblatt signed a lease on a historic saloon in Pioneertown, California. Then the world changed.In March, states and municipalities began ordering restaurants to close their doors. Since then, many eateries have relied on delivery or takeout to stay afloat. Those that have opened their dining rooms are serving a fraction of the customers they're used to because of capacity constraints designed to allow for social distancing indoors. They've invested in plexiglass shields to separate customers from each other and staff, hand sanitizing stations, outdoor seating and technology to keep up with new requirements and help make customers feel safe. The Red Dog Saloon in Pioneertown, California, is slated to open by September. Overall, from March to May, eating and drinking place sales were $94 billion below expected levels, according to a survey by the National Restaurant Association. Since the abrupt closures in early...
    One of the country's hottest musicals, Hamilton, was supposed to debut at the Buell Theatre tomorrow (Wednesday, August 12) for a three-month run, but COVID-19 put the kibosh on that — as well as dozens of other performances and downtown events that normally draw crowds to spend money at bars and restaurants before and after shows and conventions. Meanwhile, restaurants are already running at 50-percent capacity — restaurants that rely on those theater and convention crowds to pack dining rooms. The result is that many downtown restaurants are barely hanging on, and one, the Rialto Cafe, has decided to drop the curtain after 23 years in business at 934 16th Street Mall. The restaurant's owner and partner, Kevin Brown, announced that the Rialto will close at 2 p.m. after brunch service on Sunday, August 16. In a written statement, Brown explained that "with so many of these closures and cancellations,...

    WICKER PARK — The owners of Smoke Daddy in Wicker Park have opened a nearby wood-fire grill restaurant featuring on-site brewing from Finch Beer Co. The Perch opened this weekend at 1932 W. Division St. in the former home of sports bar The Boundary, which closed last year after 12 years.
