I've eaten some pizza, donor kedab and wurst outside in Germany when it was pretty cold outside. It's certainly not steak or fish dinner weather.

1) There's (IMO) a difference between "eating" and "dining."

2) Anyone who enjoys eating OR dining outside in 35, 40, 45 degree -- or even 55 degree weather -- is certainly inalienably free to do that. Heck, people even LIVE outside.

Personally, I don't recall ever even standing and eating a quick bit of a hotdog or danish -- or cheesesteak -- outside in below 55 degree weather. Do people do it? Of course they do. I don't do it. It's not enjoyable for me. So "dining" outside -- to eat a meal -- while wearing a coat, scarf, hat, gloves -- and seeing my breath while I eat -- certainly has no appeal what-so-ever. But again, that's just me.

I wish all city restaurants well.
I do NOT think indoor dining (or museums, libraries, gyms, etc) had to be closed.

I just read 2 articles from USA Today, online. One listed the similarities between Covid and the 1918 outbreak of the Spanish flu. The other compared the reactions of Philadelphia and St. Louis during the Spanish flu.

The worst of the Spanish flu spread in Philadelphia came after the city refused to cancel a war bond parade.

Estimated death toll from the 1918 pandemic in Philadelphia, from September to December: 13,936.

I ventured out again to visit some retailers to prepare for Thanksgiving and start some early Christmas shopping.

There was no noticeable restrictions or enforcement of the 5% rule. The only store that had a line was the HomeGoods on Columbus Blvd, which was only about a ten minute wait, and once inside it definitely felt like the store was more at 40%/50% capacity, not 5%.

Target and Home Depot had no restrictions, nor did Ikea or the Wine and Fine Spirits store on Columbus.
