Indoor Dining Starts on Wednesday!


Hello there! These are interesting times folks, and a glimpse of normality lies on the horizon. The Governor, in his infinite wisdom, has decreed that NYC will resume indoor dining at a reduced capacity on Wednesday September 30th! We've been looking forward to this day for... forever, it seems, and we're excited to welcome you all back to The Queensboro. There are some rather huge caveats attached, but they exist for some very important reasons and we intend to do our part to make sure that NYC continues to go in the right direction when it comes to reducing the rate of covid infections. See below for all of the details, but the important takeaways are: we will take everyone's temperature, we're keeping our contactless ordering system, you need to make a reservation, and we're working hard to make it safe for everyone. Now onto the juicy details!

Advance reservations will be required for indoor dining


We are limited to 25% of our maximum capacity, so we have set up our reservations system to manage capacity limits and maintain contact tracing.

While the restrictions put in place are for everyone’s protection, they may require some flexibility on your part. It might not always be possible to get a reservation at your preferred time, or add guests and things like that which used to be routine.

So please book in advance - sign up with Resy if you haven't already, it's free and once you're all set up it's super easy to use.  

Please use our contactless ordering system

We will continue to use our remote ordering system, both indoors and outdoors.  Guests will be able to access the menu, place orders and pay via their phone. 

We are not doing this to make things difficult for anyone, we are protecting you and our staff!

If you aren't able to order by phone you will be accommodated at a "safe ordering station" where our staff are protected by a Plexiglas shield.

Finally, we ask that you please be patient with us during these tough times.  We are doing our best to provide you with a great experience while protecting you, our staff and ourselves. It's not easy for anybody these days, and we might have a rocky start to how we manage indoor dining with all of the restrictions that we need to navigate, but we'll do our best and we hope that you will keep supporting your local restaurants as often as you can!
