A message to Employees of Parasole from Phil Roberts

Danny Meyer, the top restaurateur in NEW YORK has closed all nineteen of his restaurants. So has the iconic Tom Douglas in SEATTLE….all twelve of his restaurants.....closed.

Restaurants across the globe have followed suit. There are no open restaurants in FRANCE. Nothing open in ENGLAND, ITALY or SPAIN. In the Middle East….UNITED EMERITS and SAUDI ARABIA ? All restaurants closed.


As you all know, with all restaurants on the planet, incoming receipts pay yesterday’s bill’s. PARASOLE is no exception. And there is zero money coming in the front door.. All of you in our extended PARASOLE FAMILY who are temporarily away from work are feeling the pain. And Yes….that includes all of our managers, chefs, office personnel, Senior Staff and owners. NOBODY….NOBODY is being paid.

But, by taking painful measures and fully facing into the DIFFICULT REALITY OF TODAY, we hope to return to serving our guests SOONER rather than LATER.

In fact, we received some good news today. The Senate has GONE BIG and passed a $2,000,000,000 (that’s two trillion dollars) emergency relief bill that has help in it for all of us. It will help all of us with the needed cash to get through the days and rough road ahead. And it will provide emergency loans to the company that will allow us to re-open our restaurants.

So for all of us...

WE CAN !!..... AND WE WILL!!!!...... GET THROUGH THIS !!!!!!
