DOT installs outdoor seating at Park Slope restaurant as part of Streets Seats program

PARK SLOPE -

A Hawaiian poke-inspired restaurant in Park Slope is home to the New York City Street Seats program’s latest contribution.

Pokéworks applied to be part of the NYC Department of Transportation’s Street Seats program and was approved. Now its customers can dine at the front of the restaurant on Seventh Avenue. The space features three tables surrounded by flowers.

The NYC DOT Street Seats program works with local businesses to turn city streets into welcoming public spaces. The Street Seats will remain installed from March to December. According to the city, the seats are placed in a roadbed along the curb or on a sidewalk.

Pokéworks will be responsible for keeping the public space clean, taking care of the flowers and storing its furniture.

Some residents said they were concerned with the space taking up parking spots, but after the installation of the seats, they said they were appreciative of the space.
