Dining out has taken an indefinite hiatus in DC, as the city does its part to stem the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Most restaurants have pivoted to takeout and delivery options, so enjoying a restaurant meal (and supporting the local economy) is still within reach. Of course, there are still options to buy gift cards to use later, purchase merch online, or even write a Google review of your favorite restaurants during the shutdown.
As for takeout and delivery, there are options out there for all budgets -- from fast-casual pizza to Michelin-starred Italian cooking and twists on Chinese takeout favorites. Even local beer and spirits can be ordered to your doorstep. Here are some of our favorite DC-area businesses offering delivery, along with menu picks to help with ordering.
