The Wholesome Table recently announced they’ll be temporarily suspending operations until “the world starts to normalize.” The organic food restaurant said that the last few months have greatly affected their operations just like the rest of the dining industry.

“We are hoping this is just a small roadblock, and we’ll be back soon to welcome you to our wholesome table,” reads their post on Instagram.

The restaurant is grateful for the continued patronage despite the difficult situation and assures diners that they will find solutions to get back on their feet. Known for their plant-based comfort food and other specialty dishes, The Wholesome Table will still keep in touch with their customers via their social media platforms.

“We will not be silent,” they expressed.

The Wholesome Table’s branches are located in Bonifacio High Street, Alabang Town Center, Greenbelt 2, Salcedo Village and Power Plant Mall.

There are also other restaurants that had to face the inevitable fate of closing down. Shangri-La Finest Chinese Cuisine Restaurant and Sodam Restaurant as well as local bars Makati’s XX XX, Route 196 and Polilya are among those that had to resort to permanent closure. 

On the other hand, there are those who are utilizing the idea of temporarily ceasing operations to cut off from current losses such as Thai restaurant People’s Palace and modern Filipino concept restaurant Half Saint.

Due to limited dine-in operations and stricter protocols, it seems that more establishments are becoming subject to hiatus or worse, shutting down. Of all the major changes and trends the pandemic has brought, this is something we don’t want to see sustained in the industry.
