City Winery's Response to Covid-19
Monday, December 14th
Dear City Winery Patrons,
It is with tremendous frustration that we are announcing the temporary closure of our new facility at Pier 57 in Hudson River Park. Governor Cuomo announced that as of Monday December 14th, there will be no more indoor dining in NYC. This is despite the fact that our rapid Covid testing system has been a huge success for the past three weeks, creating a "100% Covid-tested" bubble in our restaurant for all employees and guests. With over 800 tests performed, we actually caught a few “positives” before they exposed others. Testing works —especially finding asymptomatic people. But alas, we will follow the mandate and close operations until further notice. We do hope to re-open early in the new year and demonstrate again that with the highest levels of caution, one can create an environment for the safe enjoyment of food, wine, and music.
Thanks for the limited chance we had to serve you from the time Con Edison turned on our gas six weeks ago until now. We'll see you on the other side.
In the meantime, take care of yourselves and your communities, and if you are able, please consider supporting City Winery by:
- Making a donation to our Employee Relief Fund.
- Ordering our award-winning wine
- Becoming a member of our wine club
- Attending an upcoming CWTV Livestream Show
Please note that throughout this pause, we are still accepting private event inquiries, and our team is available to help you plan life’s special moments - safely.
We will continue to communicate with you on our efforts throughout this pause, and we look forward to the day that we can share hopeful news of re-opening.
