Around the world, independent restaurants are threatened both by Covid-19 and the social distancing measures necessary to contain the pandemic. In one Tokyo community, restaurant patrons have organized to support local eateries during the «emergency» declared in early April. Based upon an ethnographic study of independent restaurants and drinking spots, this essay discusses the resilience of a local culinary community, comprised of restauranteurs and patrons, as well as the role played by community ethnography.
