COVID Recovery Surcharge

The NYC Hospitality Alliance successfully advocated for the COVID recovery surcharge. This legislation was enacted and gives restaurants the same right as every other industry in NYC to use a clearly disclosed surcharge, if they choose, to help generate revenue to pay for increasing expenses such as PPE, outdoor dining expenses, labor costs, rent, etc - a policy that some restaurants have wanted to experiment with. The bill is in effect until 90 days after indoor dining at full capacity is permitted.
