TULSA, Okla. — Some Tulsa restaurants are staying open to offer to-go or delivery options. Roosevelt's is doing that and more. Customers can now order groceries, too.

“Milk, eggs, paper towels, things that you could buy at a grocery store," said Vincent Sorrentino, Roosevelt's operating partner. “We understand that it is very difficult right now in grocery stores and going into a place with quite a few people doing the same thing.”

The kitchen at Roosevelt’s now also serves as the market place. They box up your groceries and then either leave them on a table for you to pick up or can bring it out to your car. This service also helps the restaurant’s employees keep their jobs during an unprecedented time.

“Along with most other people in my age range, I have a small amount of savings," said Carissa Fisher, a bartender and part-time manager at Roosevelt's. "But that’s not enough to pay all the bills, everything like that when you’re income just stops."

“We are wanting to stay open so we can give them those hours so they can earn some type of income during this time, because they are relying on tips and service and kind of things like that," Sorrentino said.

Roosevelt's is also thankful for the customers who continue to order from them.

“As far as knowing, like, hey, people we’ve been able to serve beers to or take care of for however many years are coming back and helping us out when we need them," Fisher said.
