From Nico’s Desk, Thank You! 3/23 (Update: 3/28)

March 28, 2020
To Members of the Turtle Mountain Community:
I would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU! on behalf of all of us who work at Turtle Mountain for the overwhelming show of support this past week and the incredible generosity shown to the hard-working kitchen and front-of-house staffers who do their best to provide all of you with your to-go and delivery orders as quickly and as accurately as possible.
We are all very humbled by the outpouring of love shown by both regular customers and new customers alike. We can’t wait to re-open to dine-in business so we can all get caught up on what we missed in each other’s lives while we were staying at home.
All of us here at Turtle Mountain miss seeing all of you, and we look forward to the lifting of the dine-in restriction so we can all get back to business as usual. In the meantime, keep coming in and saying hi. We always look forward to seeing friendly faces.
Nico Ortiz, Proprietor.

Thank You Governor Lujan Grisham for considering restaurants offering carry-out and delivery to be Essential Businesses. We all consider ourselves to be essential, and we are glad that you do too.
Our ability to bring in some cash flow and keep some of our employees working can mean the difference between weathering the storm or closing down completely.
Turtle Mountain will comply with this directive to the best of our ability, and we thank you again for letting us do what we do best, feed the people of the Great State of New Mexico!
Nico Ortiz, Proprietor.
