BOSTON — Chef Sarah Wade just opened Stillwater in downtown Boston seven months ago and was looking forward to the busy tourism season that COVID-19 has now taken out.


“We went from having a busy restaurant gearing up for Saint Patrick‘s day to a takeout business putting food in containers with no guest,” said Wade.

This week especially would’ve brought a lot of tourists downtown.

“It’s sad not to see everybody running around in their marathon jackets,” said Wade.

This time of year would normally be where we start to see Boston’s tourism season in full bloom, but that’s obviously not happening this year. In fact Mayor Walsh says don’t expect to see tourism come back for months if not a year even after the city opens up.
