Restaurants Offering Carryout during COVID-19
2 April 2020
While the state may have closed restaurants for dining in, there’s still ample opportunity to support your local dining scene through carryout and walk-up windows. Help businesses stay afloat and save yourself from another night of cooking — it’s a win-win situation in our eyes. Here are just a few of our favorite spots offering takeout during COVID-19:
A popular staple from One Off Hospitality, Avec’s Meditteranean-inspired wine bar menu is now available for pickup and delivery. You can browse the full list of tantalizing menu options on Caviar, or call to pick up their new offering of premade family meals that feed 2-4 people.
Maple & Ash (and Etta)
Craving a good steak dinner? One of Chicago’s top steakhouses, Maple & Ash, continues to serve a truncated version of its menu. Call for pickup and delivery; with each pickup order placed, guests will receive an equal-value gift card to what they spent, so you can continue enjoying and supporting the restaurant down the line. (You can also pick up from sister-restaurant Etta and enjoy the same promotional deal.)
Pacific Standard Time
Stylish and West Coast-inspired Pacific Standard Time is tackling the time of takeout with renewed vigor and inventiveness. The restaurant is releasing special Family Meal menus via an email signup list, where $40 feeds 4 people. In addition, they’ve expanded their roster of menu offerings, with a bigger wine list, spirits available… and even a free roll of toilet paper thrown in with every beverage order.
West Loop newcomer ROOH continues to dish up progressive Indian-inspired fare via delivery. Experience Indian food takeout at its finest with small plates and large plates alike, alongside bottles of wine now 30-50% off. You can explore their full menu and place an order via Grubhub.
For the first time ever, famous dining experience Alinea is offering an incredibly affordable to-go package. The restaurant is crafting chef-special three-course to-go menus for only $34.95 per person each — naturally, these meals sell out quite quickly. If you can’t get your hands on an Alinea to-go deal, you can also try offerings from The Alinea Group’s other two restaurants: Next and Roister.
