Dish: Special Edition

Rounding up the East Bay restaurants offering to-go and delivery services during the COVID-19 crisis.

In the spirit of lending a helping hand to the wonderful restaurants and bars—and their many employees—that help make our region so wonderful, Diablo is keeping a running list of those places that remain open for to-go service during the shelter-in-place order issued March 17.  If you have the means, please consider getting take-our or delivery from your favorite dining and drinking establishments—these are businesses that have been hit disproportionately hard by our efforts to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  

 

We’ll make every effort to be as comprehensive as possible and will be updating frequently. If we’ve missed anyone, please let us know at dish@maildiablo.com. Finally, several restaurants made the difficult decision to simply shut down temporarily for the next few weeks. For those businesses, please consider either buying a gift certificate or donating to any potential fund-raising efforts (such as GoFundme) to help increase the odds of them reopening—details can be found on individual websites and social media.
