The Natick Select Board next week will consider applications from Agostino’s, Oga’s, Hampton Inn/Skybokx and Kells for outdoor seating at which they can serve booze.
Agostino’s bid would be for up to 40 diners at 10 tables placed 6 feet apart as part of the downtown Natick plan to use sidewalks and street space to create an al fresco spectacular complete with lights and art displays.
Oga’s Japanese Cuisine on Rte. 9 west seeks to create a temporary outdoor dining area in the grass area next to the restaurant. The proposal will permit space for up to 24 diners at 6 tables placed 6 feet apart.
Skybokx looks to create a temporary outdoor dining area on the sidewalk/patio area in front of the restaurant. The proposal will permit space for up to 23 diners at 5 tables placed 6 feet apart. But what about the TVs…in case pro sports really do return?
If approved, these proposals, plus one from the Kells taproom and brewery downtown, will join the likes of Dolphin, Trend and others that have been given the town’s blessing to expand or begin offering outdoor dining service with alcohol.
