After launching DineOut NYC at six restaurants across the five boroughs, Rockwell Group expanded our program for safe communal dining in neighborhoods deeply affected by COVID-19. DineOut Mott Street encompasses a full-block closure between Mosco and Worth Streets to create new public space for up to 120 guests to gather simultaneously and eat at local restaurants.
Our flexible, adjustable dining environment allows for the block to be closed to car traffic from Friday through Sunday.
An adaptable template
Colorful, covered dining pavilions line the street, featuring banquettes for groups of five.
Tall planters filled with lush greenery separate guests from passersby and traffic.
Tabletops feature artist James Chan's illustrations, originally commissioned by Think! Chinatown.
Custom-designed, curved plexiglass partitions help further divide freestanding tables and chairs.
Recreating the communal nature of a restaurant in a safe setting, the dining partitions allow couples and small groups to it closer together without the risk of exposure.
