Where to takeout in LA

April 1, 2020

 

 

These last two weeks have been difficult for Los Angeles. We are currently undergoing the effects of a countywide quarantine with local businesses being affected the most. Many restaurants, cafés, and fast-casual establishments cannot operate their dining areas to serve their customers, but rather are allowed to sell their food and beverages for takeout (in some cases, this includes alcohol too). Whether you’re ordering takeout, delivery, curbside pickup or ordering through a third-party delivery (Grubhub, Postmates, Uber Eats, Caviar, etc.), you’re helping a small business stay open and allowing an individual to continue to be employed – THANK YOU!

There are many restaurants that continue to operate and I am very thankful to each and every person working the frontlines. I’ve compiled a list of restaurants and have listed them based on the following locations in LA: SFV, SGV, Westside, Eastside, DTLA, and South Bay. While some eateries may have multiple locations throughout LA, I am listing the location I know to be open. 

Also, if the restaurant has an asterisk, they are currently serving alcohol to-go. Please drink responsibly and drink in the comfort of your home. Let's keep each other safe!
