NYC’s Open Restaurants Plan Explained

On Monday, June 22nd, we co-sponsored a webinar to help answer some questions about the City’s Open Restaurants plan to permit the use of sidewalks and parking spaces for outdoor dining.

Under the plan, food and beverage establishments are able to serve customers in outdoor areas without going through a cumbersome application and approval process. The webinar was informative and well attended by politicians, the media, restaurants, and other BIDs and businesses.

With the City’s Open Restaurants plan to permit the use of sidewalks and parking spaces for outdoor dining, food and beverage establishments will soon be able to serve customers in outdoor areas without enduring a cumbersome application and approval process.

As Phase 2 of reopening NYC on June 22nd quickly approaches, there remain many unanswered questions about how the Open Restaurants plan will work – the permitting process, rules and regulations, and how to physically implement service in open spaces.
