Torch Bar and Grill in Flint Won’t Re-Open Until August
You'll have to wait just a bit longer for those yummy tots.
It's been a weird time for restaurants - some of them stayed open for curbside pickup and delivery during the COVID-19 outbreak, and some of them closed their doors until things calmed down a bit.
Now, Michigan restaurants are allowed to open up for dine-in with limitations. However, not all restaurants were ready to open up and some of them chose not to for public health reasons.
The Torch in downtown Flint is planning on opening in August; according to their Facebook page, they've used this time to do some much-needed upgrading:
Hello everyone!! We know that you are ready to come in and get a Torch Burger, but we have decided to delay our re-opening until August 1st.
We know that is disappointing news to many of you, but during the down time we are going to be doing some refurbishing. As an example, we are completely replacing our 19 draft lines with new lines since the beer has been sitting in the old lines for 3 months. So, when you do come back, you will have your favorite draft fresh out of new, clean lines.
We are also going to replace the carpet with new flooring, reupholster the chairs/booths and do some other upgrades as we take advantage of the down time. We also have some maintenance things to deal with such as the compressors for the reach in coolers for bottle beer need to be replaced.
Rest assured, we are going to re-open and when you come in there will be a new refreshed look at the Torch.
See you when you're up and running, guys! Looking forward to it.
