Gov. Phil Murphy visited a Wyckoff restaurant that was targeted last month by hate and vandals.

The governor posted on Twitter a picture of him inside Gourmet Garden, where he stopped to get dinner to-go and elbow bumped some patrons inside the restaurant while he was there.

He tweeted, "Great to stop by Gourmet Garden in Wyckoff for dinner. In June, they were a victim of racist graffiti, but you would never know it from the spirit and perseverance we saw tonight. We will always stand in full solidarity with our Asian American communities and small businesses."
Vandals spray painted 'coronavirus' on the door and windows, as well as "go home to China" last month outside the restaurant.
No arrests have yet been made.
