    By CURT ANDERSON, Associated Press TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — La Tropicana Cafe has been a cornerstone of Tampa’s historic Latin-influenced Ybor City neighborhood since the 1960s, well known as a gathering spot where movers and shakers and even mobsters mixed with construction workers over Cuban coffee and sandwiches. Now its doors are likely closed for good, like so many other bars and restaurants done in by the coronavirus pandemic. Every neighborhood loses something precious when local eateries and hangouts get shuttered, but as infections spread and the economic fallout continues, the loss of iconic establishments like La Tropicana is particularly hard to swallow. “In Tampa, if you were a politician, La Tropicana was where you would show up," said Patrick...

    A restaurant server in Lincoln, Neb., was recently given a 5-cent tip from a customer who apparently wasn’t a fan of the city’s mask mandate. On Monday, Twitter user Ali Siverhus posted a picture of the receipt, which also had a note. “Get rid of masks, tips will be bigger,” the note said, just above where the customer wrote in only 5 cents on the $38.15 meal.

    Cities across the U.S. are delaying plans and reversing orders to allow restaurants to open for indoor dining, marking the latest setback for one of the hardest-hit industries as COVID-19 continues to spread across the country.  With outdoor dining permitted, many restaurateurs have expanded their seating onto sidewalks, even spilling into local streets to lure passersby. But a few measly chairs alone can't carry them through the seemingly unending interruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic.  "Anybody that thinks that outdoor dining is a solution needs to have their head examined," said Philippe Massoud, owner of Ilili, a Lebanese restaurant near Madison Square Park, after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio late last week said the city would not allow...
    Marilyn Schlossbach, the owner of several New Jersey restaurants, told “Fox & Friends First” on Wednesday that she doesn’t “know how many more blows the industry can take” after Gov. Phil Murphy announced that indoor dining has been postponed in the state. On Monday, Murphy announced that New Jersey will no longer move forward with its Phase 2 reopening plan, which would allow indoor dining, as coronavirus cases spike throughout the country. Part of the reason prompting the decision, he said, is that some New Jersyans aren’t following social-distaining rules, like wearing face coverings or staying six feet apart from one another in public. “We have seen spikes in other states driven, in part, by the return of patrons to indoor dining, where...

Walker | The Boston Globe via Getty Images As states reopen, consumers are going out for meals more often, but about a quarter are still not using restaurants at all and some have a higher level of discomfort about in-restaurant dining than in April, a new survey found. A Bank of America survey of 1,000 people on June 18 found that about 32% do not think they will be comfortable dining in a restaurant until 2021, up sharply from the 20% in a similar survey in April. Less than half — or  just 48% of respondents...
    You can once again enjoy the simple pleasure of sitting down to eat inside a restaurant in most parts of Maryland. At 5 p.m. Friday, Gov. Larry Hogan’s executive order allowed restaurants in much of Maryland to begin indoor dining at 50% capacity. There is no change to the limit on outdoor dining, which is also capped at 50% capacity. The exceptions are Prince George’s County, which will start its Phase 2 reopenings starting Monday, and Montgomery County, which hopes to ease restrictions sometime next week. Diners can expect tables to be spaced 6 feet apart, no buffets, all staff to be wearing face coverings, and tables and chairs thoroughly cleaned between every seating. “They deal with cleaning and sanitizing...
