The restaurant’s socially distant tables are fully booked for Sunday.

“Hopefully the weather will play along and we can open the terrace. It’s a little too far ahead to tell right now, but that certainly gives us a lot more space to work when the sun comes out for us, ”said Percival.

For many restaurants, Easter is the first major holiday in over a year that they sell out.

“It’s exciting,” said Citrus and Salt’s Rebekah Jackson of the Easter brunch bookings. (WBZ-TV)

“It’s exciting, yes, we’re really looking forward to it and look forward to the rapid service again. I mean, our deck is open again, so it’s always exciting to see people walking around outside and inside, ”said Rebekah Jackson of Citrus and Salt.

“Easter, spring outdoors – it just makes sense and it’s safe to do in our restaurants,” said Bob Luz of the Massachusetts Restaurant Association.

The Massachusetts Restaurant Association is seeing renewed interest in people eating out.

“We are happy to have a full venue at Easter, but we have a long way to go here. We appreciate the support of the general public and we are helping each other,” said Luz.

Owners, managers and employees smile under these masks as old friends walk through the doors again.
