“Wear a mask—it’s the easiest thing you can do to protect yourself and others,” the mayor tweeted along with the video. “When you’re not eating or drinking at a restaurant, make sure to keep it on to help keep our favorite restaurants open and safe.”

The video emphasized the cultural importance of restaurants and what they mean to the city.

“It’s a beautiful thing,” a voiceover announcer says. “Let’s keep it that way.”
