Who’s Open, Who Delivers, and Who’s Offering Takeout

 

NOTE: Vermont State is lifting all Covid related restrictions/requirements and ending state of emergency at Midnight Tuesday, June 15th!
This means there are no longer any state imposed restrictions on restaurants!
Be on the lookout for requirements for individual restaurants and rules that towns may have in place – but this is another step in the right direction.
Please be patient with local restaurants as they move towards full reopening – it may not happen all at once as staffing, reorganization, and layouts need to be worked out.

 

While many restaurants are open for indoor dining – they have been under capacity restrictions, and some have remained take-out only.

Below you will find the last update to Covid Restrictions – we will not update this page again unless conditions change and the State of Vermont adds restrictions.

 

FOR THE MOST UPDATED INFORMATION – Visit the individual restaurant pages on NEK Eats

 

 

Below is a list of our NEK restaurants and what they are offering for services at this time. Information changes frequently so check back often! All restaurants require that customers wear a mask to their table. The mask can be removed when you are seated at your table, but must be put back on when you get up. Many restaurants with indoor seating require reservations so we recommend calling ahead.

While restrictions have eased, it is important to check with the restaurant on their policies.
