Deep Dive: Connecticut restaurant reservations see spike following Jan. decline

Connecticut restaurant reservations are seeing a spike after a January decline.
Caleb Silver with Investopedia says there has been a 32.1% increase in restaurant reservations compared to pre-pandemic levels and after a big decline in January of 12.3%.
He says the January decline was attributed to people staying in due to Omicron.
"We are seeing a nice recovery in that sector when folks are dining out again. There has been a big increase in the last month in the state of Connecticut," Silver says.
Silver says Connecticut has seen a big spike in hiring across leisure and hospitality.
Last year 93% of the jobs that were lost have been recovered. That's about 96,400 jobs just in that sector alone.
