Ferrell Alvarez and Ty Rodriguez closed their restaurants in Tampa’s trendy Seminole Heights neighborhood last week. But they have a plan for riding out the coronavirus outbreak: Building a takeout business of fried chicken sandwiches and gnocchi with short ribs for Floridians hungry for comfort food amid a global crisis.

“Tuesday was the most dreadful day for me. I was crying,” Alvarez said. “The next morning I created our concept.”
