Order These Takeout and Delivery Dishes in SF Right Now
We are many, many months into this COVID mess and, unfortunately, as of December, we’re back to takeout and delivery only. We’re hopeful that restaurants will open up again soon, but until then, we put together a list of some of our favorite spots doing takeout and delivery ‘cause we know you’re tired of cooking and doing the dishes (seriously, have you ever done so many dishes in your life?). From all kinds of pizza to caviar service to sushi to fried chicken, there’s something for every palate and every bank account on this list.

Celebrate a special occasion, or just the fact that you showered and put on clean sweats, with caviar service from this swanky Nob Hill spot known for its refined menu of Italian dishes. Offered in partnership with The Caviar Co., the service includes a flight of three Acquerello private label caviars (1 ounce of Royal White Sturgeon, 1 ounce of Golden Osetra, and 1 ounce Salmon Roe served with crème fraîche, brioche toast, and buckwheat blinis). And because man and woman cannot live on caviar alone (or probably can’t afford to anyway), Acquerello is also offering a four-course prix fixe menu, prepared fresh and meant to be heated up and enjoyed that day ($80 per person), a curated cheese selection ($40), and a dessert trio ($45). Everything can be ordered at any time and picked up Wednesday through Saturday from 4 pm to 6 pm.
Cost: $150. Order online.
With the temporary closure of Angler, the team pivoted to a to-go barbecue concept that takes advantage of Angler’s heart and live fire. The entire menu is making us drool, but right now some pastrami brisket (offered by the 1/2 pound and 1 pound) sounds extra comforting. The menu also includes a smoked pork belly cubano, buttermilk biscuits with honey butter, orecchiette mac & cheese, and a embered caramel frosty that you do not want to skip. Don’t want to choose? Get a family meal for two or four, and add some bottled cocktails while you’re at it. Available from 12 pm to 8 pm/9pm, Tuesday through Saturday.
Cost: $23/$46. Order online for takeout or delivery.

Auntie April’s famous chicken & waffles from Auntie April’sNext time you get a hankering for chicken and waffles, order from this lowkey spot in Bayview. The food is authentic, affordable, and most of all: so damn delicious. The famous chicken and waffles comes with a choice of chicken (one leg and one thigh, one whole breast, three wings, or two tenders and a choice of waffles (classic, cinnamon, or red velvet). We like the leg/thigh/classic combo, but you do you. Add on some sides (red beans and rice, mac and cheese, and collard greens to name a few) and do not skip out on dessert (banana pudding, Mama’s lemon crunch pie, and pound cake), not like you would with those options.
Cost: Famous chicken and waffles: $15. Order at the restaurant for takeout or get delivery from DoorDash.
Cost: $$. Orders must be placed in-person at the restaurant.
Cost: $19. Order for pickup there or online.
