We’re always looking to make The Infatuation the best platform to find restaurants, and we appreciate your feedback!

Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.

Indoor Dining In NYC Is Postponed
On Wednesday morning, Mayor de Blasio confirmed that the city will not move forward with indoor dining.

July 1, 2020

  • On Wednesday morning Mayor de Blasio confirmed that the city will not go forward with indoor dining.

  • This press conference announcement is a reversal of a previous projection that indoor dining would begin as part of Phase 3 on July 6th.

  • While Mayor de Blasio was adamant that “it is not the time to forge ahead with indoor dining,” he urged, “It is the time to double down on outdoor dining.”

  • De Blasio assured that the city’s small business services and the Department Of Transportation would continue outreach to restaurants as part of the Open Restaurants program, which fast tracks and helps qualifying restaurants and bars attain permits for sidewalks, curbs, and in some cases, roadways. The mayor said the program would help “show restaurants that qualify that they can take advantage of this right away and do it in a safe way outdoors,” and that he would like to expand the initiative as the summer continues.

  • So far, there is no projected timeline for when indoor dining may begin. We’ll continue to update you as more info comes out.

  • You can watch the Mayor’s recorded press conference here, and look at the city’s Open Restaurants dashboard here.
