On January 29, 2021 Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that assuming New York State's COVID-19 infection rate stays on its current trajectory, indoor dining in New York City can reopen at 25 percent capacity on Valentine's Day. The reopening will be subject to strict state guidance, which can be found here.
The Governor also announced that marriage receptions will be able to resume in accordance with state guidance on March 15. Events must be approved by the local health department. There will be a 50 percent capacity limit and no more than 150 people can attend the event. All patrons must be tested prior to the event.
With this in mind, we are ecstatic at the notion of events and more dining on the horizon! And with the warm weather just around the corner, venues and locales with outdoor spaces are the perfect option. And when hospitality staff is needed, our servers / waitstaff, bartenders, porters / cleaners, greeters, directional staff, catering captains, venue managers, cooks / culinary staff - and more - are ready for action!
