To Open or Not to Open? Getting Feisty Over Sandy

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Restaurants have been having to make the call today whether or not to remain open despite Hurricane Sandy's impact on the weather, and people are getting a little judge-y about it on Twitter, regardless the decision.

The Bravado approach: Union Jack's Bethesda's pretty proud they're open.


The food critic chide: Washingtonian's Todd Kliman thinks restaurants should be closing on account of employees' difficulties getting to work.


The Can't We All Just Get Along approach: Food writer Russell Warnick has seen a lot of people judging on Twitter and encourages them to back off; food writer David Hagedorn agrees.


The concerned customer weigh in: Bryan Voltaggio says his customers are worried about his decisions to stay open.


Support for staying open: The Restaurant Association talks about the good things that come from restaurants remaining open.
