Michael and Johnny discuss the ongoing impact the COVID-19 shutdowns are having on bars and restaurants in New York City.

Indoor dining remains closed and the bars and restaurants that have remained open are utilizing outdoor dining to try to turn profit.

However with the fall and winter months soon upon us and no blueprint coming from the mayor’s office to reopen for indoor dining -- we ask if this will be the death knell for the majority of bars and restaurants in New York City.

And with the “For lease” signs gone up on the Long Hall Pub & Grocery on East 34th Street, Johnny, the co-owner, gives us an update on the future of the bar.
