Town of Southampton Supervisor Jay Schneiderman, Discover Long Island President/CEO Kristen Jarnagin, Douglas Elliman CEO Dottie Herman will be joined by local merchants to officially reopen outdoor dining on Long Island’s East End. New York State has opened “Phase 1” of outdoor dining, effective Wednesday, June 10, 2020, in Suffolk County. Hundreds of thousands of residents have been forced to use only take-out and delivery services from restaurants, cafes, and taverns. This is the first day that patrons and local residents will be able to eat outside and be served by waitstaff at local restaurants. 75 Main is hosting a kick-off event with local merchants and restaurant owners with a champagne toast to celebrate the unofficial opening of the Hamptons outdoor dining.
Real Estate and other merchants will also discuss new statistical data and social distancing laws. The Hamptons has had a boom of renters from New York City for months prior to the Memorial Day Weekend. New York City residents have spent their shelter-in-place on the East End. COVID-190 has impacted the economic conditions of the Hamptons, which is one of the largest visited regions of the nation. New York City restaurants have still not permitted outdoor dining.
