We are elated to read that LA County has been given the permission by the Governor to resume some Dine-In service. This is a surprise given the last official word indicated that this moment would be a month or two (or three) away. While there are more details to learn about throughout the day and the weekend, it is important to celebrate what this result means for LA County.
Making the announcement on a Friday does not mean that Hugo's Restaurant can re-open safely on Saturday. Or even this Monday. There are still additional steps that we want complete in the facilities to be confident we are providing a path to safely receive guests again. We've been working day and night on this, but this is a sudden announcement and we can't suddenly react to it. We have to do this consciously and carefully.
For the time being, Hugo's Restaurants will continue to offer only Take-Out and Delivery services. We will announce a reopening date for Dine-In services as soon as we are confident we can accomplish it. It won't be long, but it is not going to happen next week.
Thank you for your continued support for local businesses! We are anxious to welcome you back and will let you know about our plans as soon as we know them.
