Many Westchester restaurants rose to the occasion these past few months, stocking their shelves with goods from fruit, vegetables, and pre-made sauces to household items like detergent and paper towels after COVID-19 emergency measures allowed them to begin selling grocery products. For many of these restaurants, this change, in addition to expanded takeout and delivery programs, has helped them stay in business.
“We have been doing this for the past few weeks and have had a great response from the community,” says Greg Katsaros, co-owner of BLD Diner in Larchmont.
