11PM is the New Closing Time Starting 2/14

By NYC Hospitality Alliance

Today, Governor Cuomo announced that beginning this Sunday, February 14th restaurants and bars may extend their operating hours until 11:00PM.

This is welcome news as the NYC Hospitality Alliance has been advocating for safely extending operating hours to at least allow for an additional seating, which has been restricted due to the current closing time of 10:00PM.   
Please note that this does not mean that "last call" may be 11:00PM, or that customers may linger after 11:00PM while they pay their bill. The rule is that all customers must be out by 11:00PM.
