A new, one-stop website launches as a free resource connecting customers with Louisiana restaurants trying to survive during the coronavirus crisis.
Many New Orleans area restaurants are adapting to a new normal — as new restrictions from state and city leaders forced them to shutter dining room doors to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
The new website, Open4bizla.com, launched on Thursday, March 19 with more than 100 restaurants utilizing the site, according to a release.
Customers can search for open restaurants nearby offering take-out or delivery. The site also complies a list of menus from restaurants and allows customers to place orders.
Restaurants throughout Louisiana can also upload and edit menus for free. The effort is a partnership between the LA Restaurant Association and local marketing firms.
Sofia NOLA, Middendorf’s, Andrea’s Restaurant, Acme Oyster House and Galatorie’s are a few of the restaurants listed.
“We encourage all restaurants in Louisiana to take advantage of this free resource in these unprecedented times,” said Stan Harris, LRA President & CEO. “We also hope customers will use the site to order from their favorite restaurants and even find new gems in their towns and neighborhoods.”
Louisiana restaurants can sign up for the free service by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
