Support Boston, providence, nh, me, and vt restaurants while responsibly practicing social distancing
To best support restaurants, order directly from their own websites whenever possible (rather than the website of a third-party delivery service). Some of the major delivery companies are delaying collection of some fees at the moment, but in general, these companies take a large cut of each order.
Support Local is an initiative that lets you show your support for your local businesses during this challenging time. Help save a local business - buy a gift card now, use it later, and help save a local business (or two). You can search by City and or State!
Due to the uncertain nature of both the present moment and what it takes for restaurants to pivot to takeout operations, these options are subject to change. Boston Magazine's The Feed Team is doing their best to keep this guide updated but please call or confirm online before heading out—and only head out when necessary.
