Oh absolutely, they've become really creative with the tents, the spacing, and the heat lamps. Fewer people want to dine out in December versus October but people will still be supporting their local restaurants, they have no choice if they want them around a year from now.

Most in NJ have taken theirs down as Murphy requires them to have a permit now.

Want to venture into the city to see the tree and Bryant Park, etc., but if the dining options are limited I may not.

The Post did a good article on the best outdoor dining spots. I was just at the Watermark Bar in one of their magical glass houses and it was really special.

I've been looking around. Very limited. Such a shame so many restaurants won't come back after this.

You don't need to worry sweetie, you don't live here and have said a billion times that you will NEVER step into our city again. 

Bye!

This is nothing short of frustrating. Mitigating spread of course is important and #1, but yeah lets just make them close and not give the necessary help to be able to reopen...especially at this time of year when outdoors isn't any kind of real option. No one can say they didn't see this coming and no one thought to try do anything of any real consequence about it. It's just "make them close" and that's it. I will never forgive leaders on every level for not softening the landing back when this started. I only take comfort in that history will not look kindly on how the US responded to this hot, heinous mess.

For me it comes from the top. If we had an competent President (politics aside, I think we can all agree he’s a terrible leader and unifier) this could have all been handled in a smoother fashion.

I was in NYC recently to tie up loose ends and was really surprised - love the outdoor dining and the energy it creates on the streets - and saddened to see all the shows that never got to open and stuff boarded up.

For someone who doesn’t live here and won’t return, you sure are obsessed with us, Mr. Roxy. Get a life.

Does your knowledge of places to eat in this city extend only to what was fashionable fifty years ago in a 10 block area in midtown?

This was written in late August so it might be even worse.

That list brought tears to my eyes. Each of those closed restaurants don’t just represent financial devastation for the owners, loss of income and benefits for the workers, and a loss for diners who considered these places one of their favorite spots, but also each represents the deep grief of owners over the loss of their hopes and dreams.

I know for me, when I travel to NYC I look forward to returning to my favorite dining spots while adding new ones into the rotation. As such, when in June I saw AquaGrill’s Facebook post that they had decided to permanently close, I sobbed loudly. In addition. to having my best seafood meals in NYC, they had become one of my favorite spots because they always made me feel like a special guest every time. That won’t happen anymore.

I don’t blame these jurisdictions for having to place restrictions on restaurants and stores to protect its citizens, but I do blame the federal government for not providing sufficient financial renumeration to these establishments to help them weather the storm.

It was also sad to see the 9th Avenue Saloon close and Empire Coffee on 42nd and 9th.

Just give the world Love.
