Mama Fox owner Samantha DiStefano looks at an air purifier she’ll need when she opens the indoor portion of her restaurant and bar to patrons, Tuesday, Sept. 29, 2020, in New York, as she continues preparation for indoor dining. DiStefano doesn’t plan on opening Wednesday, when indoor dining will be permitted in New York for the first time since March, but said she may try serving patrons at tables near the restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows where diners can have fresh air while eating.
