At the cost of staying inside and staying away from groups, the burden on local restaurants trying to adapt to a loss of customers has been financially tragic, and it’s taking a toll on one of Central Florida’s favorite staples. Sweet Tomatoes is closing for good
. The humor of everyone saving a few pounds might be relevant if it weren’t for the loss of 4,000 more jobs as unemployment reached Great Depression level numbers this week.
Reopening the economy is easier for some than others, with buffet style dining a casualty of social distancing. Places like Sweet Tomatoes have provided space for lunch meetings and dinner chats, between lawyers, doctors, nurses, families, children, and everyone in between. A few years ago, Sweet Tomatoes was mentioned in a wrongful death suit that involved an SUV crashing into the Boston-area restaurant and taking the life of a guest. But in the long term, people will remember Sweet Tomatoes for the way it always brought people together. Their loss is our loss.
