Chef David Fhima on how Gov Walz's patio order could mean death for restaurants

Real Talk With Roshini
May 26, 2020 - 9:51 am

He's no stranger to successful and failed restaurants. But Chef David Fhima has never lived through the types of challenges that COVID-19 has meant for the restaurant industry. He spoke with Roshini Rajkumar on REAL Talk with Roshini one week before Gov Tim Walz's patio-only order goes into effect on June 1st. An order that made the Fhima's Restaurant owner feel blindsided.

He says, "On the best of days, we struggle with our bottom line. On the worst of days, we are not struggling. We are dying." And that's just what he hopes doesn't happen this summer with the current expectation that restaurants in Minnesota only serve customers on their patios.
