NEW YORK, NY – New York City restaurants have suffered the most of any business in the region due to a prolonged indoor dining lockdown at the hands of Governor Andrew Cuomo.  Last week, Cuomo said the restaurants can re-open at 25% on Valentine’s Day.

“New York City restaurants, on our current trajectory, we can open indoor dining at 25 percent on Valentine’s Day. Give the restaurants a period of time so they can notify workers, they can get up to speed for indoor dining, order supplies, et cetera. We’re saying indoor dining, 25 percent on Valentine’s Day,” he said.

Last year, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced restaurants could reopen for the Fourth of July weekend.  After stocking bars and kitchens and hiring staff back, Murphy hit the panic button days before causing millions of dollars in losses for the industry.
