A year and a half into the coronavirus pandemic, restaurants across the city continue to open their doors, sometimes because their concepts could be adapted for takeout and delivery, but more often because their owners saw no other choice but to forge ahead. Since March 16, 2020, when the state first temporarily closed indoor dining, hundreds of new restaurants have opened, including those that serve dinner party essentials, dressed-up pad Thai, two-for-one drink specials, and housemade English muffins. Here’s a round-up of the restaurants and bars that opened in September. This list will be updated weekly. If there’s an opening in your neighborhood that we’ve missed, let us know at The latest CDC guidance for vaccinated diners during the COVID-19 outbreak is here; dining out still carries risks for unvaccinated diners and workers. Please be aware of changing local rules, and check individual restaurant websites for any additional restrictions such as mask requirements. Find a local vaccination site here.
