espresso 77:

We’re taking a break from the cafe, but we are selling coffee for home brewing, as well as all your favorite e77 shirts and totes.

Place your coffee orders by Sunday at 10pm and we’ll have your coffee ready for pickup at the shop the following Friday night.

Be a superhero and buy gift cards - they’ll support us now and you can use them when we re-open.

Angel Indian was closed on Saturday, and i think they still are.

New Peking Chinese has a sign saying they're temporarily closed.

I stopped by JJ Garden over in East Elmhurst this past Sunday, and they had a sign stating that they’re temporarily closed.

Mustang Thakali, Afghan Kebab House, JuJu's and Romeo's are all shut tight. Romeo's has had the same "opening on Thursday afternoon" sign up for 10 days now.

Romeo's was totally empty the last few times I passed by when they were still open. I think they were struggling even before this. I doubt they ever did much takeout or delivery business.

I hope some of our restaurants will be able to survive this with loans or whatever the government is going to do to help.

I was looking for croissants today on my way back from Food Universe. I didn't find any. So I had to buy store cookies for my virtual tea today with friends. Next time I'll try Farine.

- Cannelle is closed.
- Parva is closed.

Plaka was closed just went there.

Down by me in the high 80's, low 90''s and Nortthern, the take out Chinese is closed. White Castle is opened but only with the drive thru, I walked thru. Chipoltes is only taking orders thru their app. The bodega on 90th was opened all week is now closed, all the lotto players are freaking out.
