Michigan Restaurants

Outdoor dining igloos at Lumen near Beacon Park in downtown Detroit on Oct. 21, 2020.

A group of Michigan doctors are urging restaurants not to rush to reopen dining rooms as COVID-19 infections continue to surge across the state.

The plea from the advocacy group Committee to Protect Medicare specifically targeted a letter from Joe and Rosalie Vicari, owners of Andiamo and other metro Detroit restaurants, that became public this week. The letter urged fellow restaurant owners and vendors across Michigan to band together and reopen on Dec. 9 if a three-week "pause" on indoor dining is extended.
