Looking for somewhere to grab a meal or a drink inside the G20 Security Zone? Look no further. While many of the Front and King Street restaurants will close their doors for the G20 Summit, Jack Astor's at Front and University will keep its doors open to the public and delegates.
The hostess working Sunday said it would remain open unless there was good reason to close. When asked if she was concerned about getting through the fenced zones and working on the restaurant's outside patio during the protests she replied, "Not really, I think we are all just taking it one day at a time and see how it goes from there." Other restaurants that will remain open include Fred's Not Here, Red Tomato and Lone Star.
