They have also said the offer could extend past two weeks if closures continue.
“We need to look out for our community who are among the hardest hit by these forced closures,” said Warren Bar and Burrow owner Spencer Warren. “The majority of restaurant employees are not salaried. The people who serve you when you go out and eat are among the most vulnerable to the sudden closures.”
During their donation period, the Warren Bar and Burrow is implementing a “one-in-one-out” policy to limit exposure.READ MORE: Port Authority Holding Question And Answer Session On New Fare Plan

“It is nice to know that our community is coming together in support during this and the food wer are going to eat is a lot better than the Kraft Mac and Cheese I could get from the grocery,” said Dominic Caputo of Meat & Potatoes.
