Mello Bistro in Rosebank (Staten Island Advance/Pamela Silvestri)
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – It’s been a phenomenally busy few weeks in Staten Island food, mostly restaurant openings. As a result, I’ve been to dozens of places around the county — some brand new, some regulars — plus a few hot dog stands. The owner’s words are mixed, often encouraging and discouraging news delivered in the same conversation.
In order of feedback from the 30 or so owners surveyed: Customer sales are down since August, anywhere from 20 to 50%. Food costs are out of control. Paper products are either wildly expensive or unavailable. Guest checks are reduced, and guests cut back on luxuries such as dessert, an extra round of drinks and large bottles of spring water.
