Sidewalk Café Consent Fees

By NYC Hospitality Alliance

The NYC Hospitality Alliance has been advocating for the City of New York to suspend sidewalk café consent fees while they prohibit restaurants from operating them.

Our proposal is being actively considered and we've been advised that businesses need not take further action until the Department of Consumer Affairs releases guidance on this matter. We've been told that Sidewalk Café Licensees will not be penalized for not making their sidewalk café consent fee payment today, March 30th. We will continue to advocate for the NYC hospitality industry and will bring you additional information when it becomes available.
