We are touched by the kindness and generosity of our customers as we all try to navigate the changes in our world and our daily lives.
On March 16th when Governor Sununu declared all restaurants must close or switch to take-out & delivery, we quickly adapted our business and opened as scheduled with a new format, modified menu, and no staff. We were met with an outpouring of well wishes, e-gift card purchases, take-out orders and thoughtful notes. Thank you.
These past two months, we’ve had to learn to be patient with ourselves, as we can’t always change as quickly as we did before. Yet we learn something new with each passing week: how to improve our systems, how to modify favorite dishes for travel, how to try and keep things exciting, how blueberries seem to endlessly appease a 16-month-old in a highchair…
As some of you know, our family of four (two chefs, two trainees) shares a home with our parents here in Wolfeboro, real “multi-generational living.” It’s wonderful and challenging in all the right ways, and thankfully each household has its own kitchen! I don’t know that our plan would be any different if we didn’t cohabitate with what is now known as “the vulnerable,” but it certainly helps clarify what might have been grey areas. No financial gains would ever justify the risk of putting our loved ones in harm’s way; livelihood and lives have never been more disparate.
While each business, and each individual chooses their own path forward in the “reopening” of the state, we too must choose.
La Boca will continue to offer our thoughtful and creative food only in a take-out and delivery format through Labor Day. At that time, we will reassess what the landscape is like and how we can carry on best.
It is our sincere hope that our beloved restaurant can stand this test, and emerge strong and resilient. In the meantime, we will continue to give our all to providing you, our customers, with joy, comfort, escape, and adventure with food.
We love you and we thank you.
