If you have whiplash from the neverending, ever-changing news bombs, well, we are right there with you. Every time we seem to get a handle on the COVID-19 pandemic and what’s coming next, the earth shifts beneath our feet yet again.
But we do know this: supporting our Boston hospitality industry, in whatever way we can, is crucial to the economic survival of thousands of friends and neighbors. Restaurants across the city that are still open for business can offer takeout and delivery only -- now is the time to throw as much money as possible their way. Below, we’re highlighting some of the more unique takeaway dishes available (all subject to change), but we highly encourage you to order from any restaurant or takeout spot that you typically frequent.
And takeout is not the only way to offer your support. Keep buying those gift cards -- especially to restaurants that have already made the decision to close -- and show equal love to bars that don’t have a food program. Tip your delivery people like their lives depend on it, because they do. Order delivery from food and wine specialty shops, too, many of which are expanding their delivery distances. And don’t forget about our regional farmers. Some farm stands across New England are still open, and, like everyone else in our dining chain, need our support.
