“Not going to sugarcoat it — we are in trouble,” writes one local restaurateur. “Just like every effort to stay home helps flatten the virus curve, every to-go oder… helps flatten the failure curve.”
It’s not just the eateries who are concerned. With restaurants essentially shuttered until the COVID-19 epidemic is contained, folks without cooking skills (or the energy to make meals) may think starvation is on the way. But many restaurants continue to operate on a pick-up and delivery-only basis (often through services like UberEats and Doordash).
Below is just a sampling of some of those restaurants to help get you (and them) through the crisis. Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments:
