Expanded Outdoor Dining to Resume in Boston (Except The North End) Starting April 1

0 37

It looks like there will be another season of expanded outdoor dining in the city of Boston, though one neighborhood isn’t included just yet.

According to an article in Universal Hub, the Mayor’s office has given approval for restaurants to set up temporary outdoor dining areas on public sidewalks and in parking lanes starting April 1, with dining spots needing to re-apply for temporary outdoor permits for the 2022 season. The post mentions that North End restaurants have not been given the green light as of yet because of “the density of the restaurants in the neighborhood,” though dining spots in the North End can still apply for expanded outdoor dining while waiting for a decision to be made.

Universal Hub also says that there are new rules in place this year, including temporary patios being required to close by 9:30 PM Sunday through Thursday and 10:30 PM Friday and Saturday, along with new requirements concerning barrier safety, insurance requirements, and evacuation plans.
