Five restaurants on Water St. will take over ten parking spots on Water St. to extend from sidewalk for “Streatery” dining until November 15, or as long as weather permits.

On Friday, October 9, the Worcester License Commission unanimously approved the parking sports being taken over for new, temporary installation of dining area for five restaurants. Lock 50 at 50 Water St., Maddi’s Cookery and Taphouse at 64 Water St., Russo’s Italian Restaurant at 65 Water St., Bay State Shawarma & Grill, at 86 Water St., and Broadway Catering & Restaurant at 100 Water St. will have extended

The program, funded by MassDOT, was described as a pilot program, with an intention on continuing the program in the spring.

The program will be evaluated to determine feasibility as a recurring seasonal program and to design guidelines, permitting, and licensing requirements.

Streateries exist in many cities currently, including Burlington VT, New Haven CT, Portland ME, Philadelphia, PA, Seattle WA, Washington D.C. and Long Beach, CA.
