Outdoor Café areas


As we enter spring season, the City of Utica is pleased to offer restaurants the option of utilizing the public sidewalk as outdoor café areas.

There is no fee for utilizing sidewalks, however you must file an application with the City and have a copy of your Certificate of Insurance naming the City of Utica as additional insured.


Further, if you serve alcohol on the outdoor café you must have written permission from the NYS Liquor Authority. It takes at least two weeks to get the application through all departments.


Please call Andy Brindisi at 315-792-0181 for details or if you have any questions or concerns.
