A bitter sweet re-opening day for Downbeach eateries. After a brutal 3 month lock-down, Margate and Ventnor restaurants finally permitted to offer outdoor dining effective Monday June 15.
NJ Gov., Phil Murphy still holding firm on the inside dining ban… for now.
Downbeach restaurants are ready and rarin’ to go. Here’s a few examples:
Sofia in Margate set up a series of stylish tents on their parking lot and adjacent sidewalks.
Annette’s on Dorset Ave in Ventnor transformed their parking lot into a colorful dining experience complete with umbrellas and tropical foliage.
All new Santucci’s in Ventnor is much more than a square pizza joint. Wait til you see their roof top deck. Perfect for outdoor dining & socializing.
