MILWAUKEE — Meat on the street is a popular Filipino restaurant inside the Old Pabst building who is playing it safe for now. They've decided not to open up their counter service because of the rise of COVID cases.
"We decided the best way is to limit exposure because that's kinda what the CDC recommended. Space between everyone you're a Quarantine team. So that's why we chose to start like that. As things progressed we were considering opening, but with the recent spikes and a lot of our restaurant friends have all had positive cases. We think it's better for us to stay closed and not open for counter service and operate as a virtual restaurant essentially, so we can make it through this entire pandemic," said owner Alexa Alfaro.
