Even through the Safer at Home order is being lifted in Tulsa on Friday, some restaurants said they are still not opening. 

Kilkenny’s and Nola’s on Cherry Street are two of the latest businesses to say they aren’t opening on May 1st.

They released a statement saying following the announcements from Governor Stitt and Mayor Bynum; they just don’t feel it’s wise to open their dining rooms at this time.

The restaurants said there are still too many unknowns surrounding the pandemic, and want to focus on the health and safety of our community.

Several other restaurants like McNellies, Yokozuna, Mondo’s, Elgin Park and the Vault have said they don’t feel comfortable opening up their dining rooms yet either.

Many of these restaurants are still offering curbside service — with the exception of Kilkennys. They are temporarily halting their curbside service but said some Kilkenny’s favorites are on the Nola’s curbside menu instead.
