Gathering together to relax around a table to experience fine dining, has always been one of life’s greatest pleasures. COVID19 has completely uprooted this tradition, making it all but impossible for restaurants to operating in ways that seemed normal just months ago.  As the second largest employer in the United States, the food industry is struggling to balance the shifting needs of customers, employees and their own financial insecurity during these unprecedented times.

As we enter the third phase of the pandemic, the likelihood that COVID will be around for a while has made many wonder how many restaurants might survive such a prolonged period of disruption. Meanwhile innovative food pop-ups, online take out, grocery and meal prep services have blossomed as communities rediscover everything from the revival of baking to creating elegant dining experiences at home.

Celebrated chef David Burke, Myriad Restaurant Group CMO Tracy Nieporent, and Rene Ramos, VP Field Marketing Constellation Brands, share a conversation about how COVID has effected their work, unpacking several insightful ways the food industry has responded to the pandemic’s effects on food service, dining out, and the culture of how we eat.
