Rocco Sacramone, owner of New York City restaurant Trattoria L’incontro, talked to the Daily Caller about receiving $100,000 from the Barstool Sports Fund which aims to help businesses struggling because of COVID-19 restrictions.

Sacramone discussed how the pandemic hurt his business.

“Our business went down like, I don’t know, 60 to 70 percent. We lost a lot of the staff. We keep some, we lost some,” Sacramone continued.

“It has been a difficult ride, you know, but this too shall pass as the bible says.”

Sacramone’s restaurant went viral after he posted a video of him and his staff dining outside at his restaurant during a snowstorm because of New York Democratic Governor Cuomo’s indoor dining ban. (Related POLL: 85% Of Small Businesses Need Federal Funds To Survive The Pandemic)

“It is to prove a point that you can not have dinner or lunch in the middle of a snowstorm, or in the middle of the winter in New York City. It is almost impossible, it doesn’t work,” Sacramone said.
