Restaurants across the Hudson Valley say when it comes to staying in business during the coronavirus, it’s adapt or die – and that is certainly the case for Westchester Mexican restaurants on Cinco de Mayo.
The owner of Cantina Lobos in Pelham says Cinco de Mayo for Mexican restaurants is like Black Friday for the retail world - it’s their everything.
While no one can sit down at restaurants, the owner says he is learning how to perfect takeout as they try to remain open and relevant during this pandemic.
The Westchester Taco Grill has created a new take-home taco pack for its customers that the restaurant hopes will boost sales.
Restaurant owners say one of the things keeping them afloat is for the first time they can sell alcohol to go. The Westchester Taco Grill is charging $10 for a bag of peach sangria. It’s something the restaurant hopes will continue long after the pandemic ends.
The Westchester Taco Grill says alcohol sales have saved their restaurant with people buying margaritas and sangria.
