Your Go-to List for Local Restaurants offering Takeout and Delivery

Corner Bistro in north Wilmington is offering curbside cocktails like this Moscow Mule. Banks Seafood + Kitchen in Wilmington also offers a delicious takeout menu.

Delawareans are mobilizing in a big way to support local restaurants hit hard by the coronavirus. Not only are many folks “eating out” by picking up food and drinks at restaurants offering curbside service, but many are tipping generously and sharing to-go menus on social media.

The list below is our first limited crack on the slew of local eateries who are cranking out delicious meals. The restaurants offer a variety of approaches – some just to-go, some will deliver, and some – like Bryan Sikora’s Hearth in Kennett and Crow Bar Trolley Square – are offering special “pop-up” dinner specials that sell out quickly. 

 

Restaurants that offer bar service can provide beer, wine and alcohol to go (capped at 40% of the total tab).

Not on this list are the many restaurants that simply couldn’t find an economic path to staying open for now, such as Brew Ha Ha!, Cromwells, Six Paupers, Ulysses America Gastropub, and all six Platinum Dining Group restaurants. Pizza by Elizabeth’s and Sugarfoot Fine Food tried the takeout service for a few days this week but announced today that they have decided to temporarily close.

We will all need to pump these restaurants up when the health coronavirus crisis passes. Please let us know of any ideas, suggestions or even additions to this list.

Bon appetit and stay healthy.
