It’s official, San Diego: as of March 19th, California is under a “shelter in place” order. You can still go out for groceries, gas, and medication, as well as to medical appointments, and to essential jobs, but otherwise, you should be spending as much time at home as possible.
Thankfully, restaurants are considered essential services, so you can still get your favorite meals via pickup, curbside service, or delivery. Everything from fast food to gourmet gelato is available -- even beer, wine and spirits can be had for the asking. Check your favorite hangout’s website or phone them for options, and if you’re not sure how things like “physical distancing” or “touchless delivery” works, just ask. As always, tip generously -- oh, and ask them to throw some cool merch in the bag too. It’s an easy way to support them, and you probably need a new t-shirt anyway.
While the situation remains fluid and many restaurants are still deciding how to proceed, we’ve gathered some of our favorite businesses that have pickup and/or delivery service, along with delicious choices from their menus to help with the decision making process.
