Back in July we saw 2nd Street kick us off with a closed street full of restaurants ready to serve diners while “socially distancing.” After difficult months of quarantine for residents and restaurants alike, this was not only a much-anticipated thing but huge first step towards more business for some of our favorite restaurants. Philly restaurants that have a license for sidewalk, patio, or backyard seating starting Friday, June 12 can now offer dine-in services. Several rules are in place to attempt to limit the spread of COVID-19, including capping the number of customers and keeping 6 feet of space between diners at different tables.
- Parties can’t include more than six people
- Diners have to wear masks when they aren’t seated.
- Expanded seating will be from 5pm to 11pm on Friday nights, and noon to 11pm on Saturdays and Sundays and will last until Labor Day.
*We’ll be sure to update this list as we get leads so continue to check back.
*For all locations, please call and/or check their site for availability and hours.
