In August, the city started removing dining sheds from outside closed establishments ... or restaurant and bars that were no longer using the street spaces. (To be clear, Amor Y Amargo remains open.)
The city said this about curbside structures that are still in use:
The task force will also review sheds that, while potentially active, are particularly egregious violators of Open Restaurants program guidelines. In these cases, sheds will be inspected three separate times before action is taken. After each of the first two failed inspections, DOT will issue notices instructing the restaurant owner to correct the outstanding issues; after the third visit, DOT will issue a termination letter and allow 48 hours before issuing a removal notice. DOT will then remove the structure and store it for 90 days — if the owner does not reclaim it in that period, DOT will dispose of the structure.
City officials are currently finalizing legislation for the open restaurants program.
