Given that Westlight is a rooftop cocktail bar, it makes sense that the cocktails are the best part of their delivery menu. Try the rum-based Snowbird or the mezcal and jasmine Ghost Shadow, paired with spiced chicken empanadas and the burrata with orange jam.
This Israeli cafe is great for a low-key brunch or breakfast for dinner if it’s been one of those kinds of days. Opt for the schnitzel, hummus, shakshuka, Yemenite pancake, and a few different dips.
Meadowsweet serves high-end American dishes like a wagyu bavette or a crispy chicken sandwich for weeknight dinner as well as weekend brunch.
Marlow & Daughters
This butcher has all kinds of quality cuts of beef, chicken, turkey, and lamb available for pickup or delivery, as well as fresh fish from Greenpoint Fish & Lobster. They also have some prepared foods like roast chicken and soups, plus bread, dairy, and produce.
Close your eyes imagine a rectangular food tray overflowing with a slab of saucy ribs, potato salad, candied yams, and collard greens. Now open your eyes and head to Mable’s website to order that exact platter from this Williamsburg spot. You can also get Texas snack foods like frito pie - chili and cheese on top of Frito’s served in the bag, if you’re into that kind of thing.
We’re going to start with the bad news. No, you can’t order most of Lilia’s pasta for takeout or delivery. The good news is there’s still plenty you’ll want to eat on their to-go menu, like sandwiches, tortellini in brodo, a whole grilled chicken, cocktails, and (this is important) their olive oil cake by the slice.
Bagel orders are deeply personal, so we’re not going to tell you what to order from Frankel’s, just that the #1 Bagel has pastrami salmon, scallion cream cheese, and dill cucumber salad and that it’s our go-to. If you’re feeling indecisive, try one of the brunch kits with enough for several days of bagel sandwiches.
Diner’s burger has always been worth traveling for. Now, you don’t have to travel, you just have to live in the delivery zone. With a thick but not-too-thick patty topped with sharp cheese on a soft bun with crispy fries on the side, you could split it with someone, but please don’t.
This seafood spot is known for (resist the urge to scream) crab, specifically in the form of crab rolls and steam pots. Get those, plus oysters, chowder, or a couple of cocktails delivered.
