Most New Yorkers would like to see the ‘alcohol to go’ statute made permanent.
The rule was introduced during the pandemic- allowing restaurants and bars to sell alcoholic beverages ‘to go’ as a means to allow them to continue making money as both were shut down.
A survey by the New York State Restaurant Association found that 78% of New Yorkers are in favor of it, with 72% of Upstate New Yorkers being in favor.
The existing order was extended through June 5.
