The United States has entered the seventh month of the new epidemic, but there is still no light in front of the tunnel. Originally, since the middle of March, the United States began to implement home control, which once slowed the growth of the epidemic. However, with the re opening of the economy in early June, the epidemic situation came back again, and the outbreak speed was more fierce than before. < / P > < p > in this once-in-a-century pandemic, physical retailing, entertainment, tourism, aviation, travel and other industries have suffered a devastating blow, and some businesses even failed to make a profit after several months. Although the catering industry is allowed to take out and pack, a survey in May showed that restaurants would lose more than half of their revenue if they didn’t have a restaurant business. After June, Silicon Valley gradually relaxed the control of the catering industry, allowing restaurants with outdoor dining conditions to open, but indoor dining was still strictly prohibited. < / P > < p > high class restaurants without outdoor dining want to cry without tears: their high premium mainly comes from on-site production, fresh ingredients and dining atmosphere. There is no way to open the business now. Although employees can be dismissed, high rents will continue to be paid. Many high-end restaurants either give up closing or condescend to take out. Even Alexander Steakhouse, a high-end steakhouse in Silicon Valley, has started to make takeout packages and even sell cooked raw steaks directly. < / P > < p > in downtown San Francisco, hashiri is a Michelin star restaurant and one of the most expensive Japanese food stores in San Francisco. The store opened in 2016 and focuses on Huaishi cuisine, which is divided into three price packages of $250 / 300 / 500. All of them are made by the chef in Japan. Despite the high price, Silicon Valley, where the rich are gathered, is still in short supply, and even needs to book weeks in advance. Due to the lack of outdoor dining conditions, hashiri has only been closed since mid March this year and has been able to accept package takeout, resulting in heavy loss of revenue. On the one hand, no matter how good the sushi sashimi is packed, it is impossible to achieve the delicious food in the store; on the other hand, the diners are originally attracted to the dining experience here, so it is unnecessary to spend so much money on the packaged set meal. Looking at the long-term prospect of the elimination of the epidemic control measures, the anxious manager hashiri is no longer willing to wait. At the beginning of this month, three plastic spherical greenhouses with three tables and several chairs were set up at the entrance of the restaurant. Each ball can seat four people and enjoy a two-hour combination of five daily ingredients. The charge is $200 per person. It is said that all three plastic balls cost the restaurant $4000. < / P > < p > why not just set up a table and chair outside the store? Hashiri’s downtown San Francisco is home to the largest number of homeless people in the United States. A large number of homeless people sleep directly on the street, many of them are addicts, and even solve the problem of defecation and defecation directly on the street. If you put tables and chairs directly outside the store, these rich people who spend hundreds of dollars a meal may not want to see homeless people lying around them. However, the plastic shed of hashiri restaurant has not been put up for a few days, and has received a lot of criticism. Some have accused hashiri of humiliating the poor by offering hundreds of dollars per person of lavish meals in front of the destitute homeless. Others went to the San Francisco Department of health to report that hashiri’s shed had violated epidemic regulations. Last Thursday, San Francisco Health Bureau officials raided hashiri’s plastic shed, saying that the inside of the shed was “airtight, with poor air circulation, which did not meet the requirements for outdoor dining.”. Although hashiri explains that the shed has windows and open doors, it’s airy enough; and they disinfect it before and after dinner. But that did not convince health officials. < / P > < p > under an executive order, hashiri had to remove the plastic sheet from the shed, turning it into an empty shelf with complete ventilation. But the trouble comes again. The surrounding environment is very noisy. The homeless sometimes get close to each other, shout loudly, spit stars flying, spit on the ground, grab food with their hands, and even make it convenient in a short distance. This dining environment is intolerable to hashiri. ‘it’s really sad that so many people want to see us go bankrupt,’ says Kenichiro Matsuura, manager of hashiri. And when the weather gets cold, even the outdoor can’t be opened. We don’t know how long the restaurant can last.
