Outdoor Dining FAQs and More

By NYC Hospitality Alliance

As we head into the holiday weekend we wanted to share with you the Department of Transportation's updated FAQ on outdoor dining requirements. Please review carefully to ensure compliance.

 
 
To help keep your business, employees, and customers safe the City has compiled this directory of local and national vendors who rent and sell equipment needed for restaurants transitioning to outdoor dining. Participants on this list have attested to reviewing the guidance set by the City.
