Health & Safety at Houndstooth
FOR HOUNDSTOOTH GUESTS
WHAT IF I MAY HAVE SYMPTOMS?
Guests will not be allowed in the building if they show symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or have a fever. We will not be checking temperatures, but we ask that you do not dine with us if you may be sick or recently exposed. We will not allow any employees to work that show any symptoms and ask the same of our guests.
DO I NEED TO WEAR A MASK & WHEN?
We ask that you wear a mask when you enter, are taken to your seat, and when you use the restroom. Houndstooth is very small and we have an open-kitchen. This is for your safety as well as our staff. We also want to ensure we can stay open to serve our amazing community!
*Masks will be available for anyone who needs one, and $1.00 will be added to your check.
WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO WEAR A MASK?
Then we will kindly ask that you do not eat at Houndstooth at this time. We understand that this is an uncomfortable time for everyone, but our number one concern is keeping our staff (and their families) healthy and happy.
ARE EXTRA SANITATION PROCEDURES IN PLACE?
YES! While we already had high standards for sanitation, we have implemented additional sanitation procedures.
I LOVE HOUNDSTOOTH AND I JUST WANT TO BE HERE ALL NIGHT!
As do we, but we take reservations for multiple seatings in an evening and ask that you are mindful that reservations are for 1 hour 30 minutes for parties of up to 2; 2 hours for parties of up to 4; 2 hours 30 minutes for parties of up to 6; and 3 hours for parties of 7+. We do not have a waiting area. Your check will be given to you 15 mins before we will need the table for the next party.
TABLE TALK- MENUS AND TABLE SETTINGS
Our menu will be accessible via a QR code that will prompt you to view online. We will have one disposable menu available per table. To manage exposure to each guest, our servers will not be available to explain each dish to the elaboration they once did. In place of that, the menu descriptions online will explain anything that may be unfamiliar.
Things will look a little different on the table. During this time we will be setting tables very minimally, to ensure that when you sit down everything on your table has not been exposed to neighboring guests.
Counter seating is not available at this time. We ask that you respect the counter as a safe barrier and do not approach the cooks or bartenders.
We appreciate everyone's help in keeping our guests and employees safe.
