Takeout Options During The Coronavirus

March 16, 2020

Left and right, everyone is talking about the coronavirus. And with that comes the recommendation for social distancing to keep others who are more vulnerable to the virus safe.

But for local restaurants, the coronavirus could be a death sentence. Many are trying to be flexible by offering new takeout and delivery options in addition to their normal ones. If you’re sick and tired of cooking (I’m getting to that point already) help out your local restaurants with takeout orders!

Keep reading for some of the many options that are now available! I’m sure these aren’t all of them, as restaurants are adding new takeout availability very quickly but this will at least give you a good idea of what’s out there!

Doing my best to update this daily. Let me know of any places that are open for takeout that are not listed and I will happily add them to this list. There are contact forms on this blog so it should be easy to reach me!

Takeout Options:

A BIG UPDATE occurred after I originally put out this post. In Portland, a new curfew has been established for establishments where groups gather. It went into effect on St. Patrick’s Day (Tuesday) from 6:00 AM-2:00 AM on Wednesday.

It then goes into effect daily from 8:00 PM-2:00 AM Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. This is from March 18-22nd.

Governor Janet Mills also issued an Executive Order banning dine-in service at restaurants, bars, and gatherings of 10 people or more. The banning of dine-in service will last until midnight on March 31st.

Another HUGE update recently occurred. Janet Mills finally is allowing cocktails to be sold to go, provided a food item is sold as well. This means we can now get cocktails delivered to our houses or you can pick them up from local establishments to take home!

Huge gains for the restaurant community. This new update is reflected below for the bars and restaurants that are now serving cocktails to go as well.
