It’s not an easy time for restaurants; most of them in New York have temporarily closed, an important measure to help curb the spread of COVID-19 in NYC. But many are also opting to stay open in hopes of bringing in some revenue to cover costs such as rent and taxes, while others are using it as a way to employ a few staffers.

Here are some of the favorite places of Eater staffers that are still offering takeout or delivery to some extent. It’s not an exhaustive list — check in on the Instagrams and websites of your favorites, too — and details such as hours and menu items may change, as restaurateurs adapt to reduced business and a new business model.

Remember to tip well and call before using a delivery platform such as Seamless or Caviar, which comes with hefty fees for consumers and restaurants.

Note: This map is an updated version of one originally published on March 23.

Staffers who contributed to this compendium include Erika Adams, Emma Alpern, Matt Buchanan, Sonia Chopra, Terri Ciccone, Serena Dai, Patty Diez, Brittany Holloway-Brown, Luke Fortney, Amanda Kludt, Jaya Saxena, Robert Sietsema, Ryan Sutton, and Tanay Warerkar.

The Handpulled Noodle

Copy Link

For tingly noodle dishes like spicy cumin beef, and more inventive ones like the Beijing bolognese, Handpulled Noodle is the place to go. The dumplings here come in four different flavor options and are served steam or fried — opt for the latter. [Order via Seamless.]

La Morada

Copy Link

This celebrated restaurant is known just as much for its immigrant activism as it is its Oaxacan fare. The moles, tlayudas and enfrijoladas are the stars on the menu here, but you can’t really go wrong. [Order delivery on the restaurant’s website]

Charlies Bar & Kitchen

Copy Link

Part of a new wave of restaurants that have brought several new dining options to the Bronx, Charlie’s menu leans Southern with items like buttermilk fried calamari, fried chicken, and jerk barbecue ribs. [Order on Grubhub and Uber Eats]

FieldTrip

Copy Link

A variety of rice-based dishes are the focus at Eater Young Gun JJ Johnson’s Harlem restaurant. Some of the top selections here include fried fluke with herbed rice and tartar sauce, barbecue brisket with Texas brown rice and peanut hoisin sauce, and best of all, spicy seafood gumbo with scallops, okra, shrimp, chicken sausage, and red rice. [Order via Caviar, Seamless, GrubHub, and Doordash]

Bangklyn East Harlem

While chef Prasong “Pat” Kanhasura playful approach to creating new dishes on the spot may be on hold right now, Bangklyn’s delivery menu still has some solid options like the spicy and sour tamarind coconut milk noodle dish that’s best enjoyed with crab meat, and the zingy papaya salad.

Up Thai

Copy Link

One of the neighborhood’s best Thai restaurants is dishing out spicy curries, noodle soups like khao soi, and Northern Thai-dishes like the spicy pork ball. [Order on Chow Now]

Bolivian Llama Party

Copy Link

When this Bolivian counter appeared at the Turnstyle Market in the passage that led to the Columbus Circle subway station, it caused a sensation with its meat stew-filled turnovers. Called saltenas, they were so juicy that eating them required special techniques, and we readily learned those techniques. For now, only the saltenas are available for bulk orders by DMing the business on Instagram or by texting SALTENA to 347-395-5481.

Corner Slice

One of the city’s top pizzerias is located inside the fod hall Gotham West Market. Called Corner Slice, the counter offers cheese and soppressata slices, but the tomato slice is nearly unparalleled.

Black Thai

This Thai restaurant is about as northerly as Thai restaurants get in Queens, and though the decor won’t matter at the moment, trust us, it’s distinctive. The duck salad here is unsurpassed, and so is the drunken noodle if you’re in a noodle mood. If you live within a mile of the restaurant, delivery is free at the above phone number; otherwise there’s Grubhub and Delivery.com.

[Available for takeout by calling 347-542-3324]

Her Name Is Han

The delivery menu at Her Name is Han, a staple of rustic-chic Korean soul food, does not run 28 pages long like at the restaurant itself. But one can still find the venue’s greatest hits: the crispy kimchi pancake, the country fried chicken with radish pickles, the succulent grilled bulgogi, the giant budae hotpot with rice cakes and sausages, and most importantly, the spicy and jiggly raw blue crab.

Pies 'n' Thighs

Copy Link

The chicken biscuit is by far the most popular item here — and for good reason — but also worth getting are the burnt end baked beans which come with pieces of pork in it, and the wide selection of pies. In light of the shutdown, the restaurant has expanded its delivery zone to Bushwick, the Navy Yard, Greenpoint, and some of Fort Greene as well. [Delivery]

Robert Sietsema/Eater

This southern Italian restaurant in the oldest part of Williamsburg down near the river has become a favorite brunch destination, but it is so much more. Smoke from a wood oven permeates many of the dishes, including a smoked mozzarella app, a salad of raw and roasted brussels sprouts, and a grandma style pan pizza; but there are also distinguished pastas such as tagliatelle and trumpet mushrooms, and desserts that include a buttermilk panna cotta with rhubarb sauce. All obtainable by calling 347-987-4500 for bicycle delivery.

Carmenta’s

This resolutely Italian-American place concentrates on red sauced specialties in a largely familiar vein, representing a rather spectacular species of comfort food.

Archie's Bar & Pizza

This neighborhood bar hidden away on Bushwick’s Central Avenue also produces amazing pizzas and New England hoagie sandwiches, the former in satisfying, bready pies cooked in a pan with plenty of toppings. The cupping pepperoni is a favorite, but the once-rollicking place also has one of the best clam pies in town, loaded with bellies and topped with a lemon. It’s a beautiful sight. [Order here]

Yemen Café

Around since 1986, Atlantic Avenue’s Yemen Cafe offers familiar Middle Eastern dishes, but also some food unique to the Arab Peninsula, such as the fava bean stew called foul, and the bubbling pot of goo called saltah, topped with a foamy fenugreek emulsion. Apart from that, there are quite wonderful kebabs, bread dips, and over-rice dishes of chicken and lamb shank (shown). Order from either the Atlantic Avenue or Bay Ridge branches: [Delivery]

Bar Camillo

This recently opened offshoot of Flatbush’s Camillo also specializes the the flatbread called pinsa, which supposedly dates to ancient Roman times. Don’t dare call it pizza! Antipasti run to chicken liver pate, anchovies with buttered toast, and artichokes with mint and breadcrumbs, but why not order a pinsa and carb it up? The one called Romana features two contrasting sauces, amatriciana and cacio e pepe, as if were pasta. Bottled Negronis and wines are available, too. [Delivery.]
