“JHBK has decided to close it doors until 2021. We have made this decision in the best interest of our staff, our guests and our business’ future,” the upscale restaurant has announced on its website.

Orders for Thanksgiving pickup will be honored on Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2020.

Opened in the former Vail Mansion in September 2014 by New York restaurateur Chris Cannon, Jockey Hollow has been offering patio dining and a wine pickup service during the pandemic.

“We  deeply appreciate your support, and look forward to seeing you again soon!” the site says.

The Morristown Pancake House, Nunzio’s Dolce Vita, La Campagna Ristorante,  Urban Table and Masago Japanese Cuisine are among Morristown restaurants shuttered by COVID-19.

  1. Sad. But yea I don’t believe Masago closed due to COVID. They looked quite busy each day with takeout orders. They had a large fire inside about a month ago at 5am which it was they are rebuilding from.
