Any bar setting type establishment qualify for opening as well if they serve a full food menu.
The spread of the virus has been lowered,but there is still the large protests against police brutality and racial injustices continuing throughout the city, “the public is understandably focused on higher priorities than where to go out to eat and drink at this time,” as mentioned by Eater.
Neither less, there is quite a few of restaurants in the city starting the process of reopening for limited dine-in services whether inside or outside. They are suitable with large dining areas or a sizable outdoor patio where required social distancing will be easier to implement with current restrictions.
