Baltimore’s Sip & Bite Left Out in the Cold Without Outdoor Seating

The lifting of a COVID-19 lockdown allowing restaurants to open in Maryland isn't going to help the popular Greek diner favorite Sip & Bite because it pertains only to those with outdoor seating.

The diner began operation in 1948. “This is our livelihood, day in, day out. This is our first child, we say that all the time,” Sofia Vasiliades told WJZ.

Vasiliades said she is happy for those establishments, but she wants the State to allow her to welcome guests as well.

“It would be great if the governor said, “all right, let’s do 50 percent. You guys can have 50 percent, come sit inside dining.’ It would be nice,” she said.

The restaurant is trying to make it on takeout orders but it's difficult with the cost of delivery taking a big sip and bite and adding to the overhead during an already difficult time.

“You can imagine a restaurant or small business having to deal with those price increases as well. It hurt, it hurt us bad,” Vasiliades said, but adding it'll take a lot more than COVID to shut them.
