Take-Out & Delivery Services During the Coronavirus Crisis!

During this crisis, the restaurant business in the tri-state area has been whittled down to take-out & delivery during prescribed hours. For most, to 8 p.m. Many establishments offer in-house delivery and curbside pick-up. Some have chosen to completely shut down. It is a very difficult time for the restaurant community. If you miss a meal from your favorite eatery, you should call ahead directly, just to make sure they are still offering the service.


Also, many restaurants subscribe to larger on-line delivery services you can check into in your area. They also offer more comprehensive lists on their websites:


Uber Eats: www.uber.com

GrubHub: www.grubhub.com

Door Dash: www.doordash.com

Seamless: www.seamless.com


Special Hint: If you want to go the extra mile and help the restaurant community at this time, purchase an extra gift card, a signature tee shirt, or an in-house cookbook.

In greater Westchester, here are a few suggestions for take-out, delivery for every palate. Most will serve to 8 p.m. as mandated. And do call ahead. (Information is fluid and subject to change.)
