Governor Ned Lamont has now given the green light for Phase 1 of re-opening to begin in Connecticut on Wednesday, May 20. As part of the re-opening, restaurants in Connecticut will be able to open for outdoor dining, in addition to the takeout options many have been providing. You can find our guide to pick-up and delivery options, here!

The decision to head out is a deeply personal one for each of us during this time. If you feel comfortable heading out and are wondering what restaurants will offer outdoor dining in Stamford, we’ve put together a list. Please note, some require reservations ahead of time, as seating will be limited.

The state has implemented rules to protect both employees and customers. So, remember to bring your face masks or cloth face covering to completely cover the nose and mouth to wear except while eating.

Restaurants are also required to rearrange tables to maintain at least six feet of distance between tables and install social distancing markers. Restaurants will offer paper menus to dispose of after guests have ordered, or display menu on a wall/white board, and/or encourage customers to view the menu on their phone. Find a complete list of rules, here.
