Cluster of delivery men gather outside exclusive restaurant Carbone

There was a cluster of delivery men at Carbone, one of New York City’s most exclusive restaurants, on Tuesday night after a ban on dining-in at all bars and restaurants drove hundreds online to place take-out orders. 

1 year agoCarbone put its famous menu online on Monday after the ban was announced. 

Using the app Caviar, diners can now have access to its menu without having to wait months for even the hope of getting one of its coveted reservation. 

As of Wednesday, people in New York were being advised to stay at home and patronize businesess safely by ordering online and having the food brought to them. 

It is unclear if that will change if and when a shelter in place order is issued as it is expected to be. Mayor Bill de Blasio said he was preparing to urge the Governor to allow him to issue the order as the number of cases in New York City approached 1,000 and the tenth person died from coronavirus.

The cluster of delivery men were not following the same social distancing approach that is being advised by the government- to stay 6ft away from people in crowds at all times for the next 15 days. Many, including the restaurant’s chefs and managers, are frantically trying to soak up as much work as they can before the situation becomes even more dire.
