After only a week of outdoor dining returning to New Jersey, Governor Murphy has made an announcement that many people have been waiting for. is reporting that Governor Murphy announced that indoor dining and casinos will be allowed to reopen on July 2nd - but both can only operate at 25% capacity.

Specific precautions for health and safety have not been announced yet, but the above tweet from Governor Murphy shows that we'll find out over the next few days. I am guessing we can expect them to be similar to the outdoor dining precautions that already exist - spaced out tables, a limited number of people per table, mask requirements staff and customers, and more. You can read more about the guidelines in place for outdoor dining here.

Are you excited for indoor dining to return? I can see both sides of the situation - on one hand, the idea of not having to cook or do dishes for an evening is really exciting since I have been doing a TON of cooking this quarantine. The return of indoor dining will also be great for the economy, and so many people will finally be able to go back to work! But, I can also understand the feeling of wanting to order takeout and wait it out for a couple of weeks just to be safe.

Which restaurant are you most excited to return to?
