For 20 years our priority has been providing a unique dining experience featuring classical French food and wines and polite service, with a strong commitment to the health and safety of our guests and our staff. We have always worked to maintain the highest sanitation standards in our kitchen, our dining rooms, and our restrooms.
In response to the evolving public health concerns relating to the coronavirus (COVID-19,) we want to let you know that we have augmented our safety measures in order to ensure our continued operation during these uncertain times.
We have aligned our safety measures with the advice and guidance of the WHO, the CDC, the Chicago Department of Public Health and the University of Chicago. We have focused particularly on educating our staff, on seating guests further from each other and on cleaning and sanitizing more carefully and frequently all common touchpoints and hard surfaces, including kitchen work surfaces, door handles, and restroom fittings and fixtures.
We continue to use white linens in our dining rooms. A throwback perhaps, but limited to a single-use, the tablecloths help to mitigate some of the difficulties presented by exposed hard surfaces.
And although we have a deep and abiding affection for each of our guests, we have advised all of our staff to refrain from any physical contact – including shaking hands.
In the hope of making our way through these difficult times together, we look forward to serving you warmly but safely in the days and weeks to come.
