After receiving permission from the New York State Department of Transportation, restaurants in the Village of Warwick may now expand their dining areas for greater flexibility and social distancing. On specified days and times, a portion of Main St., Spring St., and Railroad Ave. will be closed to vehicular traffic to allow restaurants to set up in the street.
The following restaurants will be participating: Yesterdays, Blarney Station, Fetch Bar & Grill, Wolfies of Warwick, G’s Restaurant, Eddie’s Roadhouse, Grappa Ristorante, Conscious Fork, Halligan’s Public House, and Fratello. Masks and social distancing are mandatory.
Outdoor Dining Opportunities
The outdoor dining opportunities began Thurs., June 25, and will continue on the following dates: Thurs., July 2 through Sun., July 5; Thurs., July 9 through Sun., July 12; and Thurs., July 16 through Sun., July 19.
On Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays street closures will begin at 4 p.m., with service from 5 to 10 p.m. The streets will reopen at 11 p.m. On Sundays street closures will begin at 11 a.m., with service from 12 noon to 4 p.m. The streets will reopen at 5 p.m.
On Thurs., June 25., several restaurants in the Village of Warwick participated in an outdoor, social distancing dining experience. Main St., Spring St., & Railroad Ave., were temporarily closed to commercial traffic, allowing additional tables & chairs to be set up on the street. Local businesses suffered tremendous revenue loss during the COVID-19 mandated lockdown. Business owners are hopeful that by providing the outdoor dining, the community will feel safe while showing support.
