Are the popular restaurants open and are there any indoor/outdoor, mask, occupancy limits?
For example: Chalet Suisse, MJ's, Smokey Joe's, Que Pasa, Daniel's, Gianni's, Driftwood, Oak, Quinta del Carmen?
Thanks,

Many restaurants are open, though Chalet Suisse on your list is not. I know that Que Pasa, Daniel's, Gianni's, and Quinta del Carmen are open; and I think Smokey Joe's reopened today. I'm not certain about the rest.

Amongst these restaurants, several are only seating outdoors - Daniels for example.

All are supposed to follow "social distancing" rules in terms of people waiting and gathering anywhere, and all guests are asked to sanitize their hands before entry. We have personally NOT felt that the restaurants are doing a great job with the social distancing - in particular, it seems tables are closer together than the 1.5 (or 2) meter distance required.

No one is requiring masks, though it remains recommended anywhere social distancing can't be maintained. Restaurant staff are sporting a variety of masks or face shields, though I expect that to get standardized over the next few days.

Hope that helps!

Wacky Wahoo opens tomorrow, July 15. They are not taking reservations though - first come, first served/seated only.

Bingo is open and, according to photos I have seen, looks like they have done a great job with social distancing their tables.
