The restaurant’s socially-distanced tables are fully booked for Sunday.
“Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and we’ll be able to open up the patio. Right now, it’s a little too far in advance to tell, but that will give us certainly a lot more space to work with if the sun comes out for us,” said Percival.
For a lot of restaurants, Easter is the first major holiday they’ve sold out in over a year.

“It’s exciting, yeah, we’re really looking forward to it, looking forward to the fast-paced service again. I mean our patio is open again, so that’s always exciting to have people outside and inside running around,” said Rebekah Jackson, of Citrus and Salt.
“Easter, springtime outdoors — it just makes sense, and you can do it safely at our restaurants,” said Bob Luz, of the Massachusetts Restaurant Association.
The Massachusetts Restaurant Association is seeing a renewed interest in people dining out.
“We’re excited about having a full venue on Easter, but we have a long road here, and we appreciate the support of all the public and helping us get through this,” said Luz.
