After about three months of lockdown due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the state of New Jersey allowed restaurants to reopen for outdoor dining on June 15. The new rules will require employees and customers who are not seated at their tables to wear face coverings, and mandate that tables must be at least six feet apart. Dolores Catania of The Real Housewives of New Jersey took the reopening as an opportunity to head straight to her very favorite restaurant with some friends.

“First meal out in months at my favorite restaurant in Montclair, Fresco Da Franco with the crew love these guys,” Dolores captioned a June 15 post in which she’s seated outside, wearing a gorgeous leopard print outfit and enjoying a spread of mouth-watering Italian food. 

“My peeps!!! You Look extra gorgeous out and about,” commented RHONJ cast member Margaret Josephs, to which Dolores replied, “We miss u.” 

In addition to restaurants reopening for outdoor dining, retail stores are also allowed to welcome shoppers indoors, as long as they stay at half capacity. This includes Melissa Gorga’s boutique, Envy, which is actually located just around the corner from Fresco Da Franco, and also opened its doors this week. Melissa announced in a June 10 Instagram post, writing, “I am so freaking excited!! We are finally able to open our doors @envybymg back up June 16th! We cannot wait to see you! We have tons of new arrivals and restocked so many of your favorites.”
