LOUIS (KMOV. com) -- A new video released Tuesday features several St. Louis County restaurants explaining what will happen to their business if the new restrictions are extended beyond four weeks. The restrictions, which took effect Tuesday, ban indoor dining at restaurants.

“Maybe you know after this four week shutdown he has someone to rely on in the restaurant industry who he can kinda bounce things off of and we can come up with a plan to not extend the four week shutdown," said Ande Pietoso, Cafe Napoli's co-owner.

Pietoso is featured in the new, roughly two-minute video.

St. Charles County is open, so why do you want to come sit on my patio when its 30 degrees under a heater when you can go sit in their dining room," said Pietoso.

The restrictions mean the inside of Pietoso's restaurant is empty of diners.

“Even if it was 15% occupancy, if we could come in and have the guests wear a mask every time the waiter approached the table," said Pietoso.

The video featuring restaurant owners came out just hours after nearly 40 restaurants and the Missouri Restaurant Association sued to block the county's indoor dining restrictions.
