Well, it's true. Geppetto's is open for Phase One dine-in!
We spent the last few weeks visiting other restaurant starships in the area. We watched. We listened and we learned much. Thank you, most especially to; Calvin & Nancy Eng of Top Dog, Tylee & Jeff Chipman of Subway, Melissa at Masonry Grill, John & Debbie McGrath of McGrath’s, Jodi & Monty Baker of Sparky’s and Bradley, who manages Pietro’s and loves our deep dish! You went first and we have greatly benefited from your wisdom and courage. Thank you!
A few things to note… We have moved furniture, donned masks, acquired disinfectants and adopted processes and procedures to keep ourselves and our customers safe. It feels good to be open again. Although limited, it was time. Our soft open yesterday was lightly attended but rich in joy. We will continue to learn and make necessary changes as we move through the phases of this strange time. How well we know things might be different tomorrow.
Those of you who are familiar with Geppetto’s will notice we have gone from five different menus to one… all day. All food items are still available they can now simply be found in one place. It’s much less complicated. The old way felt like a Vulcan mind meld gone very bad. We believe simplicity with regard to our menu is paramount at this time.
Our Mina’s Thai Pizzas are still rolling out and DEEELICIOUS! Takeout and deliveries continue. Four of our five Lottery machines are ready for play! (Inside tip… it’s the ATM which pays out every time! As long as you have money in the bank… you win!). Seating available for groups of 1-10. Reservations are not required but are recommended. Call... 503.378.1271. Can't wait to see you!
Thanks again to the Salem community. This is a great place to work and live! @ Salem Area Chamber of Commerce GREETERS
