While it's clear the coronavirus shutdown is going to keep people from gathering together in local restaurants for some time, there are still many eating establishments that are fighting tooth and nail to stay open during what's already a monumental economic crisis for the industry.
To that end, we put together a running list of the many Peninsula restaurants still offering delivery and takeout, from neighborhood spots to fine-dining establishments pivoting to new service models.
It's not an exhaustive list and is subject to change given how rapidly things have been shifting on the public health front, so we'll be updating it as much as possible and appreciate your help in letting us know about any places we've missed.
There's no question that the coronavirus is going to have a devastating, unprecedented impact on restaurants and their workers. So if you feel safe doing so, take a night off from cooking and order from a local restaurant (and tip well!). If not, many places are also offering gift cards.
To submit an addition, please send an email with the following information to [email protected]: restaurant name, open for takeout and/or delivery, any special promotions and best contact info (website and/or phone number).
