14th March 2020 – 7th June 2020, 85 days of lockdown.
Around us, a lot of comforting solidarity, courageous and selfless endeavours, but still dark days. After a moment of disbelief, who hasn’t had some negative thoughts? Anguish was not far away; we felt isolated, maybe sadness and even boredom. Who at the beginning of this year who have imagined that we would lose the liberty of hugging, kissing, seeing our loved ones, our friends, having a party? All this because a nasty virus which is still hanging around.
Finally, some light at the end of the tunnel appeared. We were allowed to meet again, first by a group of four, then ten. We can go back to the restaurant and patronise the pubs and cafés. These places are conducive to the social ties that we missed so much.
Today, we are delighted to welcome you again. We chose this profession of restaurateurs for its merriment, for the pleasure of making people happy, to share our passion and joie de vivre. We missed you.
In practice, we had to suspend the valet parking in Uccle. Sanitary rules required to move the tables away from each other. Menus are printed on placemats. We placed distributors of disinfectant gel in strategic places and, we provided all our employees of mandatory masks (but who hides their smile). Last but not least, the wine cellar is almost full, our grillers have sharpened their knives, the steaks are waiting for you.
See you soon!
