New Yorkers may not be able to dine at one of the city’s 76 Michelin-starred establishments during the novel coronavirus pandemic — most of them are high-end, and not conducive to delivery and takeout — but more than a dozen restaurants with Michelin stars are keeping business going with takeaway and delivery. Lauded Japanese restaurants like Sushi Noz and Kajitsu are now offering more casual delivery options like maki sets and bento boxes, while others like farm-to-table Blue Hill are getting creative with to-go boxes full of fresh produce or prepared foods.

Some are packaging traditionally high-end experiences like chef’s omakase into DIY home meals, and over in Gowanus, mezcal flights and masa by the pound can be delivered door-to-door. Below, find 20 Michelin-starred restaurants that are still open for business in NYC.

Chef Masa Takayama — known for running the most expensive sushi restaurant in the country — is now running a new delivery program. The chef behind the three-Michelin-starred restaurant is selling 20 boxes of sushi or sashimi priced at $800 each ever Friday. Each box is meant to feed up to four people, with first one being a make-your-own temaki box of pre-sliced raw fish, vegetables, ginger, wasabi, soy sauce, nori, and rice.

Chef Emma Bengtsson’s two-Michelin-starred Scandinavian restaurant re-opened for takeout on May 18, offering more traditional Swedish dishes than the venue’s formal tasting menus.

The one-star caviar-focused restaurant is open for delivery and shipping via its online store, where a wide selection of caviar and pairings like smoked fish and crepes are available.

The Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare

Cesar Ramirez’s three Michelin-starred chef’s counter normally involves 15 or so courses of French-Japanese seafood, a style of dining that doesn’t translate to takeout or delivery. Amid the COVID-19 crisis, however, the kitchen offers (slightly) more rustic dishes on Caviar. Among the current items are fresh Alaskan king crab salad with little gem lettuce ($48), chicken soup with truffles and foie gras ($28), Norwegian langoustines with Japanese rice and porcinis ($48), braised beef cheeks with ramp pasta ($56), and green tea tiramisu ($22). Wine is also available. Most dishes require 24 to 48 hours notice.

The one-star Lower East Side tasting menu restaurant is offering delivery and takeout under a new brand called “Contrair,” a combination of Contra and sister wine bar Wildair.

Now, the two-Michelin-starred Tribeca venue offers a shorter and more approachable la carte menu for pickup from Wednesday through Sunday. Among the current selections are a yellowfin tuna tartare with foie gras mousse, white and green asparagus with a poached egg, beer braised chicken with morels, potato puree, and bacon, and mocha ice cream with chocolate cake.
