[WATCH] How One of Brooklyn’s Best Restaurants Adapted to the National Shutdown

When Olmsted, one of Eater NY’s 38 best restaurants in the city, was forced to close its dining room, chef Greg Baxtrom sprang into action. He and his team pivoted to making 400 free meals a week for healthcare workers, preparing dishes for a food bank they set up, and transitioned the dining room into a “trading post” so the public can buy their supply of sauces, meats, wines, and help keep the business afloat. See what it takes for the restaurant to pivot to feeding people in need as well as the general public during a time when meals and groceries are tougher to get.
