Some Hamptons restaurants will break with tradition this year to stay open past Labor Day, according to the New York Post. That’s in part because many summer residents who typically return to New York after the holiday plan to stay put in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

Eateries’ preparations will require some investment: Dining rooms will need to be winterized and outdoor eating areas will need heaters.

How long they’ll stay open will vary. Donna Leonard, owner of il Buco, said she plans to close up in October, but said, “As most of us in this country do not understand what is coming next, we are living a bit day-to-day.”

Even with the influx of residents to the East End this year, many restaurants have struggled in part because the state has limited indoor dining to 50 percent of capacity. [NYP] — Dennis Lynch
