Management at the Blue Plate Restaurant near the Riverfront said several options were under study to keep serving.
Management said, "The restaurant business is much more than a collection of kitchens, dining rooms and bars.
"It’s a community of families. The impact of COVID-19 on this community is heartbreaking.
Our family here at The Blue Plate/Café/ROBAR is doing everything we can to best serve our community and our employees through this time of uncertainty. With health risks increasing, we feel the best course of action is to modify our hours, menu, and services.
"Beginning Tuesday morning, March 17, all three concepts will be closed to the public until further notice. We are exploring options to provide our menus with curbside to-go, as well as third party delivery services. We hope that by taking these necessary precautions now, our family can help contribute to a healthier community. Please practice social distancing, follow the CDC recommendations and continue to support as many small businesses as possible – our community will be stronger for it."
