Phase 3 has FINALLY! arrived and we are beyond thrilled about it. With restaurant patios open for over a week now and the city of Buffalo working to approve expanded outdoor seating for those who need it, restaurants have been quick to take advantage of the phased reopening any way they can including continuing take out services. Let’s get out there and show them our support throughout the City of Good Neighbors, shall we?

Reminder: Please continue to follow proper social distancing guidelines and follow any and all rules put in place by each establishment, which currently entails wearing masks whenever you’re not at your table. Don’t test the waters here people, it could cost a business their livelihood at the end of the day. Just put on your damn mask!

Additionally, restaurant hours are a bit all over the place while restaurants deal with adjusted service, bringing people back to work, and more. Don’t forget to check in with each restaurant for  hours and requirements before heading to one of these establishments.

We will update this list as more information becomes available. Email us at editorial@stepoutbuffalo.com!
