A guest asked me about a week ago if we had been impacted by the world rice shortages. I replied that we had yet to be impacted. That changed this week, our dry-goods supplier let me know yesterday that our regular long-grain rice was not available at all this week, that we'd be able to get a different variety. The package that arrived this morning looks to be of Thai origin, but it isn't stated explicitly. Rice prices have increased dramatically, availability is limited, we'll do our best to minimize impact on our guests.
