Need New kitchen equipment today? Call Main Auction Services Now.
Dallas restaurants are still assessing post-tornado damages to many restaurants, and hospitality locations around the city. In recent months Dallas restaurants have received a fair amount of press, and just last month, the city was named the 2019 Restaurant City of the Year by Bon Appetit magazine. As a Dallas based commercial kitchen equipment provider it has been a time of new options for those food industry restaurants and hospitality institutions who sustained damages in the North Texas region.
This week, Dallas restaurants were in the news for the wrong reason. On Sunday, three tornado's left a trail of destruction in North Dallas, and many restaurants were affected. A walk-in cooler at Fish City Grill kept customers and employees safe, the Dallas Morning News reported. Reports from the press conveyed that when it was all over, president and co-founder of the Dallas-based restaurant, told the paper, “It looks like bombs went off.”
Reports from TV news, Facebook and Twitter say with pictures what has been devastation for some.
Customers and staff at Fish City Grill have not been the only ones riding out the storm in the cold. At nearby TJ's Fresh Seafood Market & Grill, they reported hiding in the fridge when the restaurant got a direct hit from the tornado. “Scary but everyone fine. Lots of home and businesses hurt by this storm,” the restaurant wrote on their Facebook page.
Today, the best place for restaurants to get in touch with patrons and let customers and staff know the status of a restaurant's recovery may be via social media channels. Two North Dallas establishments, Cindi’s New York Deli & Restaurant and Royal China, posted messages alerting customers of power outages due to the storm. Since power has still not been restored yet, and main freeways like Highway 75 are still shut down in some areas are causing issues for many cities.
