Some restaurants practicing all the safety protocols, but are standing up to the Governor’s shutdown order.
Since the last round of coronavirus restrictions went into place for Fresno-area restaurants in early December, James Caples has been fielding the same calls and Facebook messages almost daily.
“The question is, ‘Why aren’t you open?’” said Caples, who owns Benaddiction, the small breakfast spot at Bullard and Marks avenues in Fresno. The restaurant has stopped all table service and is doing to-go orders only.
Customers are asking because there are restaurants in Fresno and Clovis that are continuing to seat customers, both indoors and out, despite the stay-at-home order mandating they offer only takeout or delivery food.
