As many Boston restaurants pivot to different takeout and/or delivery options, we thought that it would be important to keep track of them all. You can’t eat at restaurants, but you can still support them by ordering their food. This directory is organized by neighborhood, and outlines the status of each restaurant, what they’re offering (delivery, takeout, etc.), and what platforms they’re on. If the restaurant is marked as closed, please consider visiting their website and purchasing merchandise or gift cards from them.
Right now, this isn’t a directory of every restaurant in every neighborhood, but we want to get as close as possible. We’ll be updating this guide daily - so if you don’t see your neighborhood spot, or if you’ve got a restaurant takeout or delivery tip, let us know at email@example.com.
