health and safety precautions
Health and safety of our guests and employees has always been at the forefront of what we do. We closely monitor and follow CDC guidelines, government mandates, and public health advancements so that we can offer you the most up to date safety measures for a safe dining experience. Please see the local mandate for current regulations.

Additionally, we have installed AIRPHX, a continuous air and surface disinfection technology.

AIRPHX features "cold plasma" chambers intended to kill harmful airborne and surface organisms throughout the day. Used in hospitals, healthcare facilities, Olympic training centers, universities, police and fire stations, and casinos, the AIRPHX technology is designed to eliminate 90-98% of influenza, coronavirus, norovirus, hepatitis, salmonella, listeria, E.coli, and over 30 common bacteria and viruses both in the air and on surfaces.
