With the easing of restrictions under Gov. Wolf’s COVID-19 guidance coming into effect on Monday, Montgomery County restaurant owners are overjoyed they will be able to increase their indoor dining capacity from 25 percent to 50 percent, writes Laura Smythe for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
“We’re going to lose outside soon, so this is a huge, huge win for us,” said Steve DiFillippo, chef-owner of Davio’s steakhouse in King of Prussia.
The eatery can soon increase its indoor dining from 100 to 200 seats. Currently, Davio’s has 100 outdoor seats, which means that once colder weather arrives, it will be able to serve the same amount of patrons as it has over the last several months.
King of Prussia’s American restaurant City Works also welcomed the increase that will bump its indoor seats to 99. The eatery was worried about going into colder months because it would not be feasible to pay the bills at 25 percent capacity.
“So the increase is meaningful, and we hope things trend in a positive direction to return to full capacity,” said Vice President of Marketing Angela Zoiss.
