On March 24 I started working on a project called Take Out Only in response to the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on restaurants in my area. In my work as a food photographer, I work with a lot of restaurants, both established and new. This is a huge hit for them. When most restaurants fail in the first year, something like this can put even a restaurant that has been in business for years out of business...fast. The impact of this virus has touched so many industries, my own included.
I wanted to bring attention to the places that I've worked with, and the ones that I have never even been to. To let people know what they're dealing with, how they're still
operating, what they're doing to stay safe, both for themselves and their customers. Using what I can out of my talent set, this is my way of saying thank you, we know you're struggling, how can I help.
From Mulberry Streets Website:
"Bob & Danita Sulick are a local love story. Brought together by the restaurant business back in the ‘80s, they both grew up in big families in Manchester. After raising a family of their own, they decided it was time to tackle a lifelong dream of opening their own restaurant. The road was long and rocky, but the results have been splendid. Mulberry Street started as a tiny take-out pizza joint on South Main Street, and today it stands in the center of Downtown as the most popular full-service restaurant in Manchester, CT for friends and families to meet for a bite to eat. We consider our employees and patrons family, and we even celebrate Thanksgiving morning together every year at the Manchester Road Race which passes right by our front door. We hope you will enjoy our “Cheers-like” atmosphere, our award-winning pizza, and join our great big & happy family!"
Mulberry is located at 981 Main Street, Manchester, CT 06040 l Info@TheMulb.com
Please note: I practice social distancing guidelines, shoot with long lenses to look like I'm closer than I am, get in and get out to stay out of the way and do not go in to kitchen's unless invited, stay far back from food and I check my temperature before going out.
