Dine Out Des Moines
City elected officials and staff have been in regular contact with our restaurant and bar operators during the period of COVID-19 restrictions. Even as restrictions are relaxed, many establishments may still find challenges in ensuring staff and patron safety.
Dine Out Des Moines is our initiative to preserve the unique taste, flavor, and creativity of Des Moines’ restaurants by safely encouraging business to local restaurants.
The initiative currently includes two programs:
Delivery and Takeout Financial Assistance
Temporary Outdoor Seating Exceptions
