San Francisco chefs Nicole Krasinski and Stuart Brioza have temporarily closed their Michelin-starred State Bird Provisions and its sister restaurant, The Progress, because of COVID-19 exposure.

The news, first reported by SFGate, was announced by the couple on their website and Instagram feed.

“When State Bird Provisions and The Progress first reopened, your safety and the safety of our team was our greatest priority. We have temporarily closed the restaurants due to potential exposure to COVID-19,” they wrote.

“This is truly a sign of our times and we appreciate your understanding and support in advance. We are taking these proactive measures out of an abundance of caution for our team, our guests, and our community.” ⁣

The Fillmore Street restaurants had been offering a menu of creative small and large plates for outdoor dining on weekends and takeout meals four days a week.

The pair told SFGate they plan to have all employees tested.

The acclaimed chef-owners are both South Bay natives. Cupertino native Brioza (who also grew up in Danville) and Los Gatos native Krasinski met at De Anza College in Cupertino, then headed to the Midwest to further their culinary careers before coming back to the Bay Area.
