Weeks after allowing restaurants to restart indoor dining, Gov. Newsom backtracked, forcing establishments that can’t serve food outdoors or for curbside pick up to close — again.

Thursday’s order, a response to surging COVID-19 cases, isn’t sitting well with some Malibu restaurant owners.

“I feel like I have whiplash,” Greg Bashant, co-owner of Kristy’s Restaurant in Trancas Country Market, told Malibu Surfside News about the order. “I’m allowed to serve inside. Then, I’m not. It’s in. Then, it’s out.”
