Somerville Restaurants Reopening Policy
After a collaborative effort by Mayor Curtatone, local restaurant owners, and City staff, the City has released an application for restaurants to permit outdoor dining, which will allow them to open in Somerville under the newly established state and local guidelines. All applications from existing outdoor seating permit holders will be fast-tracked, which may allow them to open as soon as Wednesday, June 10, while new applications for outdoor dining permits and requests for expansion of an existing permit will be considered by the Licensing Commission starting on Friday, June 12, 2020. See more information at SomervilleMA.gov/restaurantreopening.
