The New Way to Go Out to Eat On Long Island

The New Way to Go Out to Eat On Long Island

With more businesses reopening this summer, there is a new way of going out to eat that we’ll all have to get used to. And it’s for the best! In order to make sure residents and communities are safe, we must start adjusting to these changes, and make the best of everything. As Long Island begins entering its next few phases, keep these few new expectations in mind: 

Outdoor Seating

One of biggest changes for restaurants right now is that a lot of them are moving their seating outdoors. This ensures they are still adhering to the health guidelines created by the state while still being able to get back to business. Most spots require you to keep your mask on until you are seated, and they must be worn whenever you leave the table. Also, all utensils and kitchenware are brought to your table after you’ve been seated; they don’t set the table before you come. Indoor seating is now open to 50% capacity, so keep that in mind moving forward!

Reservations Required

We’re used to being able to just show up to restaurants and get seating fairly quickly, however now it will be different. If you plan on going out to eat, make sure you make a reservation (if available) at least a few days in advance. People are itching to get out of the house, so many tables might be taken already. Be sure to call and check with the establishment beforehand.

Know Your Options

Although it might be nice to get out of the house, remember that many (if not all) restaurants still have take-out options! If you feel like you’re not ready to go out yet, there’s nothing wrong with that. Order take-out from your favorite place and eat outside with the family right in your very own backyard.
