Eating restaurant-quality food at an actual restaurant is now a real possibility again for New Yorkers. We’ve officially entered Phase 2 of reopening so restaurants polished up their patios, backyards, and sidewalks to offer outdoor dining and guests no longer have to sip cocktails curbside. 

But regardless of any loosened restrictions, many city dwellers will still opt for takeout and delivery from their favorite restaurants because as we continue social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, it’s the safest way possible to show our support. 

And if you fall in that camp, you’re in luck. Some of NYC’s hottest restaurants have expanded their menus to never-before-tasted dishes or are offering takeout for the first time ever. So whether you’re still completely hunkered down or want to mix in takeout between visits to restaurants with outdoor dining, we’ve got a list of some of the best takeout and delivery NYC has to offer.

Don Angie

West Village
Crowd favorites from this West Village mainstay for modern Italian are finally available to take home, thanks to the Don Angie at Home package. Signature lasagna roll-ups, chrysanthemum salad, and black cocoa tiramisu for two make up the package, but you can tack on stuffed garlic flatbread, cocktails, and plenty of wine to round out your meal

At the latest spot from the folks who brought us Goodnight Sonny and The Lost Lady, they celebrate “casual anytime fare.” That means you can get cafe classics like avocado toast, a soft scramble topped with chimichurri and sweet chili aioli, and charred chicken sandwiches whenever you please, and it’s especially true with its debut takeout and delivery menu.
