Some additional restaurants have opened up for takeout only; some remain closed -- in many cases, probably forever.
There doesn't seem to have been much increase in new Covid cases as a result of the protests a few weeks ago, which is very good news. New York's numbers continue to decline slowly, and if the trend continues restaurants are going to be able to offer outside seating as early as next week.
I probably won't be participating. I do miss restaurants; going out for breakfast is one of my favorite treats. But even in the Before times, I didn't like eating outside during the summer, even in the shade. But I'm happy for my fellow New Yorkers, and even happier for the restaurant owners who could use the business.
