DBP Webinar: NYC’s Open Restaurants Plan
The City’s Open Restaurants plan to permit the use of sidewalks and parking spaces for outdoor dining puts NYC on par with cities worldwide that are leveraging public space to aid the survival of businesses. Under the plan, food and beverage establishments will be able to serve customers in outdoor areas without enduring a cumbersome application and approval process.
Now that the Open Restaurants guidelines and application have been released, this webinar is an opportunity to hear key city agencies discuss the plan, and to have your questions answered about how the Open Restaurants plan will work. We will be accepting your questions in advance, so please submit yours via the link below.
