Brockton May Allow Restaurants to Have Outdoor Dining Service

Up until now, one of the biggest cities in Eastern Massachusetts has not allowed outdoor seating at its restaurants, but that may be about to change.

According to a source, Brockton Mayor Robert F. Sullivan filed a measure earlier this week that would allow outdoor seating at dining spots in Brockton, with the City Council slated to look at the ordinance next week. Our source tells us that this would be the first time that restaurants would have outdoor dining service in the city's history, and that places such as Texas Roadhouse, George's Cafe, Joe Angelo's, Buffalo Wild Wings, Yamato Japanese Steakhouse, Tamboo, Italian Kitchen, and the Cape Cod Cafe are just a few spots that could be allowed to set up outdoor decks or patios.

The Council is slated to look at the measure next Monday, with the mayor hoping that it is fast-tracked for approval.
