Temporary Outdoor Dining


In accordance with the Governor's reopening plan for Massachusetts, restaurants can open for outdoor service on Monday June 8th, 2020. Indoor service will follow at a later date. Restaurants that wish to reopen must adhere to strict protocols and standards laid out in the reopening Massachusetts plan. In order to facilitate a smooth reopening for restaurants in Lexington, the Town has worked to streamline the application process for outdoor dining.
