(WFSB) -- When indoor dining shut down, an executive order by the governor allowed service outdoors to expand to help keep restaurants running during the pandemic.

Many are wondering if that option will still exist once the pandemic winds down.

Jordan Dikergoros, owner of J Restaurant & Bar in Hartford, and Republican State Senator and Vernon Mayor Dan Champagne join CT ’21 to discuss this.

Considering the already high cost of dining out, sales tax, and [income tax free] tips, mt meted palatable cooking will suit me just fine. And I don't have to wait in line to be seated, wait for waitstaff, wait for order to be prepared, wait for the bill[check?], wait for bill to be processed. Dining out? No thank you.
