Because we love you!!!
In an effort to help slow the transmission of the Covid-19 virus and keep our guests and staff healthy we have decided to temporarily close. We’ll re-open as soon as it is safe to do so. Thank you for your support Portland! All of us here at Screen Door are deeply grateful!
The Full Story:
Words cannot express how humbled we are by how you have continued to show up in big numbers despite this unprecedented situation and by your words of encouragement and support. As a business, it feels so wrong to even consider shutting our business when folks are still wanting to come. Ethically however, it feels right because we are concerned that we are not doing right by you if we keep our gathering place, our dining room, open. We’ve been watching the news closely and trying to take lessons from the experiences of countries that are farther ahead in dealing with this crisis. Experts in those countries are pleading with Americans to heed their advice and do everything we can to slow the spread of this disease. Even with constant disinfection of every possible surface in our restaurant, folks are going to be in close proximity to one another in our dining room and that is what we’re worried about.
