Baby Come Back: Outdoor Dining to Return in the Spring

Mayor Walsh announced on Thursday that outdoor dining will be back in 2021 starting in April through December 1st. Restaurants can officially apply for a permit on the City’s website. 

Mayor Walsh reported that nearly 550 Boston restaurants extended their dining space outdoors – 415 restaurants on City streets/land.

Earlier this month, restaurants in the neighborhood that had a temporary city permit for outdoor dining in 2020 had to close up shop.
