NBC CONNECTICUT (May 13, 2020) — Restaurant owners in Norwich have spent the last two months changing the way they conduct business. The coronavirus shutdowns have prompted layoffs, takeout only meals and contactless delivery.
As the state is now entering a phase of reopening, the restaurant owners are working to conquer a new challenge: how to set up outdoor dining for the first time.
“We are going to try it,” said Justin Burrows, owner of La Stella Pizzeria in Downtown Norwich. “We are going to see how we can execute it.”
