St. Louis area restaurants report Mother’s Day bounce
Those in charge of the city and the county of St. Louis announced that the restaurants could be at full capacity again on Monday.
ST. LOUIS – The staff at a St. Louis deli keep up-to-date and wrap sandwiches as the crowds flock to Mom’s deli on Mother’s Day.
“My son – who came over – recommended this place. So here we are. What better place is there than Mom’s Deli,” said Sharon Treece.
She came by with her wife, Janet Moore, got some food and gave the fur babies in the back seat some special slices. Treece and Moore say it’s good to see the crowd return to the local restaurants.
“Now that we’re all vaccinated and people are starting to open up, we’re excited to come back out, patronize and support,” said Moore.
St. Louis City and County heads of state and government jointly announced Monday that restaurants would be at full capacity again as long as social distancing measures are upheld.
With the COVID restrictions easing, restaurant owners said Mother’s Day could be the biggest day the restaurant industry has seen in a long time.
“We showcase our chicken and waffles, so we’re making it like a bigger package of whole birds, four waffles and mimosas for Mother’s Day,” said Rick Lewis, owner of Grace Meat + Three.
To keep up with the demand, Mamas – like many restaurants – has a sign in the window that reads “Help wanted”.
“With the social distancing and all, it’s good to see everyone on the go and enjoy life again,” said Kelsey Abt, a mother’s customer and a mother herself.
