Your guide to restaurants offering food for pickup or delivery

Here's how to safely support local food businesses during the coronavirus shutdown (and stay well-fed, too!)

In order for all area residents to have important local information on the coronavirus health emergency, Palo Alto Online has lifted its pay meter and is providing unlimited access to its website. We need your support to continue our important work. Please join your neighbors and become a subscribing member today.

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 editor@thesixfifty.com: restaurant name, open for takeout and/or delivery, any special promotions and best contact info (website and/or phone number).

Check out the list here.

We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
