You have been on our minds as the impact of the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic has rippled through our city, our nation, and our globe. The challenges that lay ahead are hard to fully gauge however we are clear that the well-being of our staff, our guests, and our community remains our main priority. With that at the forefront, our team at Bluestem has made the hard decision to suspend restaurant service until further notice. This difficult decision is part of a best-practices effort rather than a response to an exposure of the virus. We will continue to closely monitor the recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as stay in close communication with local officials.
We have set up a GoFundMe to help our displaced team members provide for themselves and their families during these very tough times. 100% of proceeds will be distributed to our employees. More information can be found here on how you can support our 65 loyal team members.
Our hope is to soon return to being the place where you can connect with friends and colleagues over a nourishing meal, and where you choose to gather when life needs celebrating. Until then, stay mindful and calm. Support the local businesses you love if it is within your means. And make sure to rest. We are all healthier and kinder after proper sleep. We’ll get through this together.
Thank you for your support and patience in these challenging times. To stay in the loop when we return to service and other important news, please revisit our website and follow us on social @bluestemsf.
Stay well + kind,
Stacy & Adam Jed
