Best NYC Restaurants Offering Takeout
Like so many destinations around the world, New York City’s world-famous culinary scene has been put on pause to halt the spread of the coronavirus. But chefs and restaurateurs are still hard at work turning out some of the best food on Earth. And to keep business going and continue serving the community, many restaurants are offering takeout or delivery service — even those venues that are typically sit-down venues only.
Support New York City’s incredible restaurants, and the people who work in the industry, by placing an order at one of these classic and brand-new Manhattan restaurants. You can even opt for contact-free delivery. Just remember to leave a generous tip. Now, more than ever, the delivery workers and kitchen staff need your generosity. And when the city is back up and running at full speed, you can check these hot tables out in person.

This upscale American tavern at the Refinery Hotel is accepting takeout and delivery orders, so you can enjoy cheesy flatbreads, lamb burgers with peperonata and goat cheese, and the ultimate comfort food, macaroni and cheese, all day long. You can even grab a bottle of wine (try an Argentinian Malbec) to round out your dinner.
This classic European restaurant in the West Village opened in late 2019, but you can still experience one of the city’s most talked-about debuts by ordering takeout. Right now, Anton’s is offering a to-go menu with items for just $1. All proceeds go directly to the kitchen staff, so be sure to add a big tip to your order of spinach ravioli with sage butter, cold-poached salmon salad or dry-aged duck with red peas and sour cherries.
One of our all-time favorite lunch spots in Manhattan, Alidoro, is offering its high-quality Italian sandwiches for takeout and delivery from its 39th Street location. The full beer and wine menu is available for takeout right now, too. So go ahead: Order a do-it-yourself Aperol Spritz kit with your Il Sole sandwich (hot soppressata, hot pepper jam, fresh mozzarella and truffle cream with arugula). Consider the lunch box for a half sandwich of your choice, side salad and a cookie.
This Italian newcomer opened in January to much fanfare, and now you can experience the headline-grabbing cuisine by chef Michael Toscano by calling in an order for pick-up, or placing an order through Caviar, GrubHub or UberEats. The “Da Toscano At Home” menu includes make-it-yourself pasta kits, a braised oxtail cheeseburger with provolone, prime ribeye and butter beans with braised artichokes. Da Toscano is also mixing up negronis and gin and tonics for two, plus wines by the bottle. Needless to say this is not your typical takeout menu.
Late last month, the team behind Uncle Boons and Uncle Boons Sister opened Thai Diner on Mott Street in Nolita. Right now, you can try the Phat Thai with rice noodles and crispy dried shrimp, crab-fried rice, Massaman chicken or beef curry and other Thai dishes from the Uncle Boons and Thai Diner kitchen. You can even toss in a few fun extras like astronaut ice cream, guava candies and Lao Dark beer for your takeout order.
