COVID-19 Letter From Mary and Susan
BREAKING NEWS!! AS OF OCTOBER 5 2020 WE ARE OPEN FOR DINE IN. OUR SEATING CAPACITY IS REDUCED BY 50% IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN THE MANDATED DISTANCING BETWEEN GUESTS AND TABLES. WE HAVE MODIFIED OUR SERVICE STYLE TO A MORE FAST-CASUAL APPROACH – GUESTS ORDER AT THE COUNTER AND A SERVER WILL DELIVER YOUR FOOD TO YOUR TABLE. WE ASK THAT YOU WEAR YOUR MASKS AT ALL TIMES UNLESS YOU ARE ENJOYING YOUR FOOD AND BEVERAGES.
CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU!!
From all of us at Gourmet Girls we want to extend a huge thank you to our family of guests for all your support and patronage these past weeks. We miss serving you in our dining room more than we can say, but…… although restaurants have been given the green light to begin dine-in service, after much contemplation we have decided to postpone the opening of our dining room.
We have thoroughly reviewed the various recommendations/requirements from the Pima County Health Department, the National Restaurant Association, and other governing bodies. After consultation with our staff members we have all agreed to err on the side of caution for the time being. The actual mechanics of safely serving a table from start to finish are complex and after doing a visualized run through of the process we concluded that with our current staffing level it was not realistic and practical.
We pride ourselves on our personalized warm and caring service, and we understand that many of our guests have underlying medical issues. We do not want to compromise your safety and your trust in any way.
UPDATE AUGUST 1 2020 We are pleased to announce that you may now pick up your food at the counter packaged to go and take it to a sanitized, socially distanced table in the dining room and have a picnic!
We continue to offer take-out service with optional curbside pickup and limited delivery options. Most menu options are available and the bakery is fully stocked. You are welcome to walk in to shop the bakery cases. Our hours remain 8am-2pm daily. Special cake orders are available. We will evaluate our decision on a weekly basis and will welcome you back to our tables with full service dining as soon as possible. Again, thank you all for your support, we love you!
