RICHMOND, Va. -- While many local restaurants have closed abruptly during the coronavirus downturn, one Richmond restaurant group quickly reopened an outpost in Scott’s Addition it had closed when the economy was stronger.

The owners of Tazza Kitchen have revived their Big Kitchen prepared-meals-to-go drive-thru concept at 1600 Altamont Ave., after previously closing it in favor of a new restaurant they were creating before the pandemic struck.

Early last month, co-owner Susan Davenport said they stopped the conversion and scrambled to clean up the drive-thru bay to get the kitchen back online. Now they’re operating with a skeleton crew and increased sanitation standards. They made the move just in time to try to pick up business in the age of social-distancing-driven to-go orders.
