Central Park’s Loeb Boathouse announced Sunday that the iconic venue will be reopening on March 29. The Boathouse will be serving lunch from 12-4pm on weekdays, and weekend brunch from 9am-4:30pm.
Boat rentals will also be available, weather dependent, a rep from the Boathouse says.
The Loeb Boathouse first closed amid the pandemic in March 2020, with all 163 of the Central Park restaurant’s employees furloughed. It was declared in October of last year that the closing was permanent, and so too were the layoffs.
A Department of Labor filing from September 2020 stated that these layoffs were considered permanent due to “unforeseeable business circumstances prompted by COVID-19.”
While owner Dean Poll was optimistic about a spring 2021 reopening, no concrete announcement had been made until now.
Reservations and private events can now be booked at thecentralparkboathouse.com.
