A running list of local restaurants that have reopened for the season

After temporarily closing due to COVID-19, Boston restaurants have started to reemerge.

A4cade reopened on Sept. 24. Zac Wolf for A4cade

Restaurants are steadily reemerging after temporarily closing this past winter.

Paola Ibarra’s Somerville bar, Barra, first debuted in February 2020, just a few weeks before the shutdown. She and co-owner Yhadira Guzmán temporarily sent Barra into hibernation in early January. They reopened the bar in late February.

“Closing was a financial decision — as was everybody’s — but it was also an exhaustion decision because we’re understaffed,” she said. “So we just wanted to focus on other stuff and regroup.”

That included putting together pantry items like condiments, salsas, and DIY kits to sell through Barra’s website, as well as offering private events. Ibarra said that now that the weather has improved, the patio is open, and they’re offering limiting reservations for seating inside the restaurant.

“The thing that makes us happier, and what we opened for, was the inside service,” she said. “Because it’s the whole experience: the music, the food, everything else. We feel energized because of that. That’s what we love.”

September reopenings:

Here are some of the latest restaurants that have announced September reopenings: 

A4cade and Roxy’s Central: They’re back! A4cade, Area Four’s bar and arcade, reopened Sept. 24 after closing in March 2020, joined by the adjacent Central Square location of Roxy’s Grilled Cheese. Stop by for a drink, a grilled cheese, and a chance to show off your pinball prowess.

Silvertone: Downtown watering hole Silvertone Bar & Grill reopened in early September, more than a year after closing its doors. A representative of the bar shared with Boston.com that the Bromfield Street spot is currently open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Trade: Jody Adams’s Mediterranean stunner reopened on Sept. 8 with a brand new menu, including Niçoise olive and thyme focaccia, baked feta wrapped in phyllo dough, and whole roasted branzino with melted leeks and blistered tomatoes.
