Pivoting to patios

New restrictions on indoors dining prompted some quick changes at a few local restaurants, which set up patios to take advantage of outside dining opportunities. Pictured above is Boston Pizza general manger Tyler Warman on the first day of expanded patio business. Below is the Sawridge Travel Centre, patio, so new (on April 15) hardly anybody knew about it yet. These are two of the luckier restaurants, with plenty of space to expand outdoors. Last week, some operators were still trying to figure out whether or how to add a patio, and others were continuing to focus hard on take-out and delivery, and hoping a return to indoor dining will come soon.
