Italian restaurant Pappardella, located at 316 Columbus Avenue at 75th Street, is the latest Upper West Side restaurant to adapt to the changes by opening a market.
A sign on the bar tells fans of the restaurant to basically ask the staff for whatever they want (if it isn’t listed on their menu).
An employee of Pappardella also tells us they are selling refrigerated items including butter, cream and pizza dough.
Once things return to normal, you’ll want to check out this great restaurant. We’ve included them in our past round-ups on the best gluten-free pizza and calamari, and all of their pasta dishes are amazing.
A lot of UWS restaurants are doing their best to adapt to the times. Recently, Cafe Fiorello opened a food and wine market and Mel’s Burger Bar opened a general store. Out of necessity, since NYC’s dine-in ban, other restaurants are beginning to push their take out and delivery services (for both food and cocktails).
But even the restaurant owners who are still operating (at some capacity) have had to temporarily lay off lots of their employees. Since these people work check to check, feel free to support them by donating to the various GoFundMe campaigns which have been launched.
