Support Your Village Businesses!

” It feels great to have guests in our dining room again!” says JoJo Hill-Alto, general manager, of Double Zero. “Everyone that’s dined with us so far has been very receptive and respectful.”

Please remember your neighborhood businesses the next time you want to shop, eat out, or take out. 

The 2020 pandemic has been especially hard for Emory Village business which have been struggling these past few months to  stay solvent. Two businesses–Lucky’s, Tide Cleaners and Romeo’s have left the village in the past months.

However new state pandemic guidelines have allowed many restaurants and other businesses to reopen their  doors or expand their offerings. In turn, businesses owners say they are working hard to keep their guests and employees safe and healthy. 

 

“We are very excited to be open again for dine in operations and we can’t wait to see our neighbors enjoying delicious and authentic Japanese cuisine fresh out of our kitchen and sushi bar once more!” said Christina Lu, WaGaYa general manager. “We are following CDC and state recommendations of social distancing inside our restaurant and on our patio area as well as all other protocols.”
