1 in 10 Delawareans work in the restaurant industry, and we’re proud to serve as the center and heartbeat of our communities. We are working with government and state agencies to keep #DErestaurants safely #OpenforBusiness  for as long as possible to provide meals for our neighbors and income for our coworkers.

Currently, there are no restaurant or bar service restrictions in place for DE, but this may change on very short notice.
