So the latest is that we are still pretty much closed. The important thing to know is that as soon as the coast is clear to serve you safely, we will be back. This thing might have bent us pretty good, but we are not broken. Far from it. Our relationships with our winemaker, cheese maker, spice grinder, distiller, bee-keeper, farmer, rancher, baymen, hunter, fisherperson, forager friends continue to nourish us. And our crew is chomping at the bit to get back to providing that spirit of warmth, conviviality and bonhomie that has defined us for 19 years.
As far as L&W goes, we are open and taking precautions. Our shelves are full of all kinds of delicious groceries, pastries, prepared foods, sandwiches, meats, pickles, milk, eggs, condiments, flours, and yes… toilet paper. If there’s something you’re looking that you don’t see, just ask – we probably have it – after all we have a whole restaurant next door. Speaking of the restaurant next door, the kitchen continues to hum. In fact, we are doing some fun pop-up to-go stuff with more to come.
So we’ll see you at the store and in the meantime: stay tuned, stay positive, and please stay safe.
Jason, Eric & the Almond Family
