This summer, CCD staff surveyed the number of restaurants currently providing outdoor seating, including new streeteries, within the district boundaries. Outdoor dining has been an indicator of Center City’s vibrancy since sidewalk cafés were first authorized. As the current number of restaurants providing take out or serving outdoors continues to expand, Center City is slowly and cautiously beginning to recover.
An online survey of CPDC members and CCD Board was conducted in the last two weeks to determine the expected timing of a return of workers to the office and to assess factors that respondents believe should be addressed to facilitate the return to work.
To support local restaurants, CCD is providing a new, evening outdoor dining experience every Wednesday and Thursday evening from 5 p.m.-9 p.m., beginning August 12 through October 7. Purchase take-out from nearby restaurants and bring it to Dilworth Park to enjoy the fountains, lush landscaping and live music. Guests over 21 can purchase cocktails to-go to enjoy with their meal.
