The “getting ready” routine for COVID Dining in Gainesville now consists of a quick check for wallet, keys, phone, mask because in the crazy 2020 world, things have changed. Dining out, let alone leaving your home, is not quite the same as it was just a few short months ago.
We’ve all had to make quite a few sacrifices in order to acclimate to pandemic life, but getting our sushi fix hasn’t been one of them thanks to the efforts of our Dragonfly team. Dragonfly has provided a touch of normalcy during these not-so-normal times while taking every precaution necessary to keep guests and employees comfortable and safe.
While patio dining has been available for weeks, the dining room was recently added back into the “allowed” options for COVID dining in Gainesville. Whether you choose indoor or outdoor seating, we’re following all CDC recommendations. Additionally, the team has been working hard to maintain as natural a dining experience as possible. Aside from the masks worn by the staff, revised hours, a new online ordering system for carryout, and the introduction of a digital menu that is easily accessed by taking a picture of a QR code on your smartphone, it really does feel like an escape to the simpler times of 2019.
While Dragonfly has always exalted the cleanliness in our dining room and kitchen, our team has taken it a few steps further by wiping down high traffic zones, installing hand sanitizer stations throughout the restaurant, and manual deep cleanings on all seating & dining surfaces between each guest. We’ve even invested in a commercial-grade fogging system to do a thorough sanitation of the entire space and all surfaces every four weeks.
Knowing that not everyone is ready for in-person dining quite yet, we’ve put a lot of effort into our to-go service which offers you the taste of Dragonfly in the comfort of your home or socially distanced picnic blanket. You can easily place an order online or through our Instagram bio menu and, the best part, curbside pickup!
You don’t even have to sacrifice your Friday Happy Hour! We know that a Sochu Mojito eases you into the weekend, so why not take one, or three, home with you? Our batched cocktails are like the adult equivalent of a Capri Sun, only a lot more fun if you ask us! Alongside our signature cocktails, we also offer our wide variety of Saké, craft beers, and wine, and the bar is offering three Happy Hour cocktails for $20. You really can’t get much happier than that!
Thanks to the tireless efforts of our dedicated team, we are able to welcome our guests and their appetites back into our dining room with open arms for safe COVID Dining in Gainesville. As we continue to gauge the needs of our community we will work to fill those demands while keeping the health and wellbeing of our employees and our valued guests at the very top of our priorities. Kanpai!
