Welcome to EVOO
Welcome Back! Dear Friends:
We are happy to announce The Dinner Shows are officially back, as of Friday June 12, and Saturday June 13! The schedule is available online with posted menus through August. As always, menu changes may occur due to availability.
We invite you to call early to make your reservations, and especially, to think about reserving special occasions and holidays, even months away, as our seating is quite limited now. Our shows will be, as always, three entrees, three wines, one big dessert with coffee or espresso. But as you can imagine, there will be changes to our protocol due to Covid-19, all with the best practices for yours and our safety. We, of course, appreciate you, our amazing clientele, for your continued support as we navigate our “new normal.”
Earlier this year, before the pandemic, we asked you to take a survey so we could have a better understanding of what our next steps might be. We received over 300 incredible responses, the survey says clearly the majority of you do not want us to change a thing! That is so reassuring and comforting as we proceed during these challenging times. We value all of your opinions and appreciate you for taking the time to share them with us. Thank you!
Our new protocol starts with your reservation. We encourage you to carefully plan your calendars as always, but your payment is not taken until seven days before your date. We are applying the same commitment to our food vendors, fishers, and farmers. They need our orders as much as we need your reservations to continue the best of what we each do.
Our new “rules” for attendees will be included in your confirmation email from us.
Here is what to expect.
Just like the old “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service!” rules, we are adding “No Masks, No Service!”
Dinner show guests must check in with masks until they are seated and will be asked to re-mask to use the restroom. Our associates will sanitize restroom in between uses.
Once seated, dinner guests may remove their masks. Our servers will be masked, and Bob and Lenore will be behind a plexiglass barrier while cooking as usual. Of course, when they leave that area they will re-mask.
For our pick-up only service,
we require masks and appropriate spacing, and we are unable to provide access to our bathroom for guests who participate.
At the time of payment for dinner shows, you will be asked if you have experienced any of the covid-19 symptoms within the last 14 days. Have you experienced a new or worsening cough, fever, shortness of breath, or have you been in close contact with anyone with these symptoms or anyone diagnosed with Covid-19.
All of our associates are screened and temperatures recorded every shift before they start the day. Please, make no substitutes if the persons you named at the time of reservation cannot come, without ample notification.
If you wear a coat to a show, we will direct you to hang it up, one guest at time. Please consider that you may need a sweater or light wrap to have at your seat in case the open windows make it chilly. We know that good ventilation with fresh air is an important preventative measure.
At the end of our program, we will ask those of you who wish to shop in our store to practice 6 foot distancing with masks on. You will bag your purchases yourselves and you may pay only with a credit card. Items you touch but do not purchase should be left on the designated table for an associate to disinfect before placing it back on the shelf.
And now that you know the rules, we suggest you relax and enjoy the evening, watching what Bob and Lenore love, the opportunity to cook for you!
