Local legislators are renewing their push to bring back to-go cocktails–saying it’ll bring a big boost in the bottom line for restaurants already affected by the pandemic.

Restaurants in Little Italy tell News 12 they are seeing about 25 % to 50% less business this week, since the rise in Omicron cases in New York City.

They say to-go cocktails are a way to make up for these losses, while still keeping employees and guests safe.

The New York State Liquor Authority stopped allowing bars and restaurants to serve to-go drinks six months ago when the state of emergency ended.
