Over the weekend, long time New York City Restaurateur Tony May along with daughter Marisa May sent the following message to alert it's customers that their parkside hotspot SD26 was gain open in these Post-Sandy times. To follow is their heartfelt note. Remember, everyone, support your local businesses.
Our Dear Carissimi Amici, New York…the city of survivors!
We have owned and operated restaurants in NYC for 5 decades and survived twocity-wide blackouts, several Dow Jones crashes, the abolition of the two Martinilunch, the loss of two of our restaurants in the World Trade Center on 9/11,Hurricane Irene last year and now, Hurricane Sandy.
Sandy hit hard, very hard, and we know many friends, family, neighbors and fellow colleagues in the restaurant industry are also facing tremendous difficulties and our hearts go out to you; just as your thoughts were with us, the SD26 Restaurant Family, during this difficult time.
Sandy staggered us for a moment, but now it's time to get moving.
We need to do what we do best - taking good care of our friends and
family, with enthusiasm, passion, lots of good authentic Italian cooking
and warm Italian hospitality. Yes! We are open for business - starting
this evening, Saturday November 3rd, and we wanted you to know that.
Please, consider a visit. Let us take care of you the best way know how: at the dinner table.
Thank you very much for your never ending support. We so look forward to welcoming you back to SD26
