Thanks to us all hunkering down and banding together, we’re seeing more restrictions being lifted in New Jersey and more opportunities to safely come together. Outdoor dining is now available at many of our favorite locations in Princeton, giving us another way to support our local restaurants during this difficult time. Time to take a break from baking banana bread and head on out!

Remember: When attending outdoor dining, make sure to keep safe by always washing your hands, and be courteous to the servers who are bravely coming to work each day!
