The past few months have been hard for many people around the country, but things have been especially tough in New York City. Thankfully, things are beginning to look up a little bit with COVID-19 case counts declining and the city doing its best to safely reopen.
One of the best parts of New York’s reopening is the return of outdoor dining at restaurants earlier this week, including at several top barbecue joints. More than 4,000 restaurants throughout the five boroughs have been approved for outdoor dining, whether it’s just a few tables out front on the sidewalk or a large partitioned space in the street. This is a big deal for restaurants, who can sell more food and drinks while also bringing back more staff.
In a normal year, getting a sidewalk cafe permit costs about $5,000 and takes six months. But this is no normal year, and the city approved thousands of outdoor dining permits for no fee in less than a week. The city has moved so quickly because it sees this as a vital lifeline to help keep struggling restaurants afloat. And more outdoor dining choices will be coming in July, as some restaurants will be able to take advantage of space on streets that have been blocked off from traffic via the Open Streets program.
Diners that want to take part in outdoor dining must follow a few rules, such as wearing masks until they are seated. The city has also set limits on when outdoor dining is allowed, with tables not opening outdoor dining rockland county ny than 8 a.m. (10 outdoor dining rockland county ny. on Sundays) and nothing open later than 11 p.m., so be sure to check when your local joint is open before going.
Outdoor dining will be especially good for barbecue joints, where food is best served quickly after it is prepared. If you order sliced brisket, for example, that brisket needs to be eaten fast if you want to get the most out of it. I’ve been impressed by barbecue joints’ ability to adapt to takeout, but there’s nothing quite like eating it fresh. I for one can’t wait to drop in at barbecue joints soon to check out their outdoor setups.
Here are all the NYC-area barbecue joints outdoor dining rockland county ny have reopened with outdoor dining in some form.
If there are any that I missed here, please let me know. And if you had any particularly good experiences recently with takeout or outdoor dining, I’d love to hear about that too.
