When Gov. Mike DeWine announced he was shutting down dine-in operations at restaurants on March 15, 2020, Watershed Kitchen & Bar executive chef Jack Moore was at home. It was a Sunday, the day when Moore would let his sous-chefs run things. Hearing the news, he immediately got dressed for work, knowing there was going to be confusion and a lot of details to sort out. 

“I went in, and we didn’t really know what to do,” Moore said during an interview this April. “We opened an expensive bottle of bourbon and sat around.” 

Sitting around didn’t last long. Watershed Distillery lost a bunch of wholesale business off the bat as restaurants and bars stopped placing orders. Moore, who has run the Watershed kitchen since it opened in January 2017, tried to figure out how to keep operating as carryout-only or at half its seating capacity.
