As of today, Emmer & Rye and Hestia are switching their service models in accordance with local and state governments, to change from a dine-in establishment to a to-go and delivery model.  To-go options, curbside pickup and delivery will still be available Tuesday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 to 9:00 p.m.  The team will also be delivering food for a $5 fee to the central Austin area. In the interim, due to the closure of the Fareground Food Hall, TLV will be relocating to use the kitchen at Emmer & Rye, while Henbit will use Hestia’s kitchen.


“Cooking for people and creating a community is what we know, and in a time where food and community are more dire than ever, we needed to keep doing what we do best, cooking for our community and supporting our team,” said Executive Chef and Partner Kevin Fink.


The team has also set up an emergency relief fund to support team members during this time. Gift cards to all four restaurants are available to purchase online in the link here, and all proceeds will go to supporting team members. The restaurant group will be providing health insurance to all employees. In addition, the team will be launching a YouTube subscription channel with cooking tutorials with all proceeds going to support the team and emergency relief.


Additionally, as a means to support their team, family meals will still be made for the staff and available for employees to pick up and take home, so they are fed daily. This will continue until the restaurants are able to reopen.
