    Test-to-table dining.

    A New York City restaurant will soon require all patrons to take a rapid coronavirus test at the door before being allowed to eat inside two days a week.

    Guests who want to visit the Pier 57 establishment on Tuesdays and Wednesdays will pre-pay $50 per person for the test when making a reservation via Resy online.
    Upon arrival, a health professional will administer a nasal swab, and patrons will be able to sip on a glass of City Winery bubbly while they wait the 10 to 15 minutes for their results.

    If the results are negative, the guests can go in, though they’ll still have to follow standard regulations such as wearing a mask and social distancing.
    Should the test be positive, the venue will send the results to be verified by a lab, but the individual won’t be allowed in.
    The eatery is still open test-free Thursday through Monday, and also offers outdoor dining.

    If you thought dress codes were bad, wait till you see this!

    Nothing says romantic dinner like getting your nose swab fucked and looking at the upper half of your wife's face from across the table.

    I make my own stuff at home.

    For Heaven's sake, I was almost gunned down.

    If I have to choose between dodging Coronavirus tests and dodging shells and bullets, I'll always choose to dodge shells and bullets.

    Nah. She's probably busy reading her handy dandy book of responses and talking points to regurgitate across every thread.

    Man the COVID is so punctual and polite it's more Japanese than Chinese. It's only there on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and the other days it knows not to visit that establishment

    That's what a lot of companies are doing, adding on these extra charges in the name of public health. We've seen the demon spawn known as Ticketmaster adding a surcharge for an approved COVID test before you are allowed in, and a lot of airlines are removing food and drink services in the name of safety. It's as if sitting in a metal tube is perfectly fine until the flight attendants give you those little biscottis or pour a cup of vodka soda

    The Abbott rapid test is 5$. Then they need the cheapest healthcare worker they can find, probably a new nurse grad for 15$/hour. They're open 5PM to 10PM, so only paying the nurse for the busiest time. Let's say they only get 20 patrons. 1000$ - 75$ (nurse) - 100$ (tests) - 70$ (average half bottles of wine they give to the pairs while they wait) = 755$ profit per night alone before even getting the suckers inside the door.

    Cool. High risk people could have a place to go eat in at a restaurant without taking such a large risk

    Seems more like a company saw the financial opportunity and gave it a shot. Good luck to them

    If you literally just tested negative at the door and still have to wear a mask and "social distance", it pretty obviously doesn't have anything to do with covid.

    Why would you waste tests on the healthy going out to a restaurant?

    Should probably save those for the sick.

    But then again, I think these tests are inaccurate a good percentage of the time.

    Let me tell you what is going to happen.

    Somebody, probably a man, probably from the upper west side, is going to go to the pier feeling perfectly healthy. He will test positive at the door, and his plans for the evening will be ruined. As his date protests, he will begin violently coughing on the staff in rage and retaliation.

    This is not a prediction. This is an inevitability.

    Duh!

    Welcome to the propagandized control you wished for.

    Americans will deep throat it and whine for more.
