L.A. Al Fresco -- Outdoor Dining

L.A. Al Fresco

LADOT is supporting LA Al Fresco to provide L.A. restaurants with outdoor dining options to restaurants impacted by COVID-19. Outdoor dining allows restaurants to serve customers while safely practicing physical distancing.

Through the L.A. Al Fresco program, eligible restaurants can apply to expand dining areas into parking lanes, driving lanes, and private lots adjacent to restaurants. The City will provide planters, barricades, and umbrellas for outdoor dining businesses to use in newly permitted spaces.


In order to support businesses most in need, 55% of all the resources and applications approved for the program will be earmarked for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) businesses or businesses located in areas that have suffered the greatest job loss due to COVID-19.
