Greetings Family and Friends,
     I want to write this note to let you know where I stand right now.
     On May 18th, NH restaurants will be allowed to open for outside dining and take out. Along with this permission, there many guidelines and restrictions. While we do have an outdoor patio, it is small, with limited seats, and there is no protection from the weather. Currently, it just does not make any business sense to try and open this space. We will continue to do Take Out only, Thursday thru Sunday as we have been, for now.
     Going forward, myself, my staff and ownership of the Inn will keep open discussions to plan well for the future, to make smart decisions within the guidelines offered and, most of all, to keep everyone safe
     Here is a link the N.H. guidelines: https://www.governor.nh.gov/news-media/press-2020/20200501-stay-at-home.htm We must adhere to both the universal guidelines and the guidelines for restaurants. Please take the time to look them over and to understand the extensive restrictions that have been put into place.
     Also, I must mention that, to be in compliance, we cannot allow anyone to eat outside on the property, even if it is our takeout. We can also not allow the consumption of alcohol anywhere on the property. This is because we cannot maintain the space properly or safely.
     I apologize for any disappointments and hope you understand my decision.
     I thank you all so very much for your great support and I will keep you all informed of our plans as we go forward. I plan to stay and serve people again in Ariana’s, but we must do this well.
     Bless you all, be safe and be well,
     Chef Martin
