Starting Friday, May 22, outdoor dining spaces will be available to enjoy in Needham. These outdoor spaces include picnic tables that are located on the Town Common, Needham Heights Common, and Eaton Square. The tables are spaced apart to ensure social distancing and allow those eating takeout from local restaurants to enjoy their food outside during this summer.
Currently, restaurants are prohibited from serving customers at indoor and outdoor seating areas. However, these seating areas provide a temporary replacement until eateries can resume normal operations.
Customers can enjoy food and beverage (including alcohol purchased with their meals) at any of these outdoor spaces. The town will not be providing hand-washing areas or sanitizing; patrons are expected to bring their own. More information about this new addition to the town can be found here.
