Council Member Borelli has passed his legislation (46 – to – 2) to allow restaurants the ability to institute a COVID-19 surcharge up to 10% until 90 days after the reinstatement of full indoor dining.

“We’re trying to give restaurants the option of adding a surcharge to let their customers know they need to raise a little bit more money to make their ends meet,” Borelli said. “The object is to give restaurants the option to utilize surcharge pricing, in order to avoid raising menu prices permanently. This is something that many other states have seen success with and will provide a life line to restaurants to stay afloat during these uncertain times.”
