Joseph Betz is the longtime owner of The House of Prime Rib—which first opened in 1949— and is chomping at the bit to get back to business. He told KCBS Radio that he’s looking forward to a socially distanced reopening, even if it means testing the temperature of customers.
“Because I am a restaurant person, I like to be around people,” he said. “And being at home and doing nothing…it’s torture.”
The restaurant will operate under strict safety guidelines. Before every shift, every employee will also be temperature tested and will cap seating at 25 percent.
Thousands of reservations are already booked.
