After celebrating Effervescence’s 3rd Anniversary last night, I reflected on the immense responsibility of owning and running a restaurant. It led me to make the hardest decision of my professional career.
In light of the COVID-19 crisis we will be temporarily closing our door tonight at 8pm for a minimum of two weeks. I do not take this action lightly as I know what a burden this will have on my employees and their families. I believe this is the very best way to keep them and you, along with the most vulnerable in our NOLA community safe and healthy. I will continue to monitor the situation and update when new information is gained.
I look forward to toasting and celebrating the day with all of you when we recover and re-open soon. We are going to need everyone's support. Gift cards are available on our website, and we will be in touch with the details of our reopening.
