Phase 2 in NYC was initiated two weeks ago and tomorrow, Monday, July 6, Governor Cuomo will initiate Phase 3 wherein restaurants will continue to allow outdoor dining. Businesses such as spas, retailers, and nail salons will also be allowed to reopen while ensuring customer safety.
I haven’t exactly made plans to brunch any time soon, but I have to admit that I love knowing that my favorite garden restaurants and rooftop bars are back in business! Though some don’t exactly want to go back to “normal” but I am so relieved that fellow New Yorkers can make a living once again.
