Eat Outdoors at These Hudson Valley Restaurants During Phase 2 (and Beyond)


Hudson Valley restaurants are allowed to reopen their patios and picnic tables for al fresco and outdoor dining in the second stage of New York’s COVID-19 reopening plan.

Counting down the days until you can once again grab a table at your favorite Hudson Valley restaurant? Consider dining al fresco instead. Tying in with the introduction of reopening Phase 2 in many regions of New York, Governor Cuomo announced that restaurants in those regions can open for outdoor seating as early as June 4.

In order to reopen, restaurants must maintain social distancing parameters, with all tables spaced six feet apart. Both staff and customers must wear face coverings when not seated.

Curious as to when your favorite Hudson Valley restaurants are reopening their patios? Take a scroll through our list.

📣 Major last minute update: Phase 2 now allows for outside dining! This news is very exciting – but also very unexpected – which means that we are not quite ready to offer full outside dining at the moment. For this weekend, our plan is to continue take-out-only service, while allowing you to sit at one of our 4 spaced-out patio tables to enjoy your food. There will still be several restrictions for this concept, most importantly: the requirement for guests to wear a mask at all times they are not seated at a table. Please be patient with us as we figure out how to best offer this new type of dining experience, but just know that we are so excited to see you all again!! As usual, you can place your order with us online or by giving us a call today after 3pm. Check out our delicious Asian-Fusion menu for tonight!! Although the bar is closed, we have several cocktail, beer, and wine options to-go when you pre-order. …>> Scroll for tonight's updated menu! >>… …………………………………………………………….. Remember: Take-out only; no table service. Guests are not permitted in building. Masks required when not seated at tables. Please maintain proper physical distancing of all guests and staff.
