A Note To Our Guests – March 11, 2020
March 11, 2020
To our guests,
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) is having an increased impact on our communities, we feel it’s important to share more about the steps we take - and the enhanced measures we’ve now implemented - to keep you and our employees safe and healthy.
We are proud to have grown Legal Sea Foods from a single fish market to a restaurant group that serves so many families in the communities in which we operate. As a family-owned business, we have taken that privilege very seriously and we have steadfastly maintained an unwavering commitment to freshness and quality. So much so, that we built our own state-of-the-art fish processing plant and food safety laboratory on the Boston waterfront. Our Quality Control Center is a BRC-certified grade AA facility where we inspect our seafood for quality and test it for purity. You can learn more about our dedication to Quality and Freshness and Safety and Sanitation.
Our Quality Assurance (QA) team, overseeing our food safety program for the Quality Control Center and our restaurants, is led by a former Public Health Director. We also employ five internal auditors who have over 120 years of combined regulatory experience. They conduct unannounced inspections at all of our restaurants, to ensure adherence to the highest level of safe food handling, quality and sanitation. These inspections are based on Food Code requirements as well as our even more stringent company standards.
Our QA team is now in daily communication with the CDC or other government agencies to ensure we have access to the latest information and best practices. Our policy is to exceed recommended standards by disinfecting all hard surfaces and frequently touched objects, such as guest tables and seats as well as menus, with peroxide multi-surface cleaner after every use. We were cited in an article the Washington Post published yesterday that offers information on dining out.
It gives me and our employees tremendous pride to know that you have shared a meal or celebrated a milestone with us. The next time you come into our restaurants, you can be confident in all we continue to do behind-the scenes to uphold the very highest standards for quality, sanitation and safety at every step.
