Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus in New York State, Gov. Cuomo ordered that all restaurants close their dining rooms. Some restaurants were able to utilize staff for take out and delivery orders, but other restaurants were forced to lay off their employees.
Dominick Purnomo, owner of DP's and Yono's, along with Jeff Buell and Jessica Sheridan of Red Burn Development and Heidi Knoblauch of Plum Oyster Bar, may have come up with at least a temporarily relief to the employees that have lost their income.
