Roughly a week after Bear Branch Tavern (133 E. Maple Avenue) decided to temporarily close, the restaurant will now reopen for carryout today (April 2).
While it is unclear why owners didn’t announce intentions to reopen for takeout along with the location’s temporary closure, co-owner Chris Lefbom said on Facebook that the restaurant will begin taking orders at 4 p.m. this evening.
The eatery will be taking extra precautions to protect customers and staff, including sanitizing its public spaces, implementing an online ordering system and patio pickup and having contact-free transactions, according to Bear Branch Tavern’s Facebook page.
Takeout will be available Monday-Friday from 4-9 p.m. and on weekends from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m., the Facebook page said.
Previously, the owners set up a GoFundMe for its employees who were previously out of work.
