As Palm Beach County begins to reopen, many residents are eager to ditch the delivery for dine-in options. Restaurants are just as excited to expand their services beyond takeout and accommodate customers, albeit at a fraction of their normal capacity abiding by social distancing requirements. A few local eateries in Downtown Abacoa and Downtown West Palm Beach are now expanding their outdoor seating options to give customers another added layer of comfort. These open-air dining initiatives will help relieve the pressure of limited seating capacity and will slowly but surely return Palm Beach County to normalcy.
Jumby Bay Island Grill, JJ Muggs Stadium Grill, Civil Society Brewing Company, and DAS Beer Garden are hosting an Open-Air Dining Weekend event in Abacoa, which begins at 4 p.m. and wraps up at 10 p.m. every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The initiative will be held May 29-June 1 and June 5-7. Tables will line Town Center Boulevard to create a safer and more comfortable dining experience for guests that would like to support small, local businesses. The event will abide by social distancing guidelines, meaning tables will be placed six feet apart and parties over ten people will not be accommodated.
The city of West Palm Beach is starting a similar event downtown! Restaurants on Clematis Street can now provide table service that spills onto sidewalks and streets. From 11 a.m. until 10 p.m., the city’s “Dining on the Spot” plan will support local businesses while abiding by the state’s capacity limit. Established traditional restaurants, such as Pizza Girls, are already embracing this untraditional outdoor seating.
We encourage you to always adhere to the best practices when it comes to social distancing and protecting you and your family. We hope you continue to stay well and safe.
