Elizabeth restaurant does what it can

Posted

BJ and Jesse Hutchinson, owners of Bernie's Kitchen in Elizabeth, said they have had an outpouring of support from the community since they were forced to close their dining room amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Customers began showing up for takeout and delivery immediately to show their support.

“I cried when I heard we had to close the doors to diners,” said BJ. “I opened the restaurant because I loved the social part of it. It's been difficult not to have the interaction.”

BJ said they have tried to keep employees busy and earning a paycheck, with wait staff making food deliveries and dishwashers coming in daily to clean the inside of the restaurant thoroughly.

While business has tapered off, BJ said they're grateful for the love and support everyone has shown.

“We have to do what we have to do to get through this,” said BJ. “When this is all over, we're going to have a big party.”
