Takeout should be a great way to support local restaurants from home — not a guilty should-I-or-shouldn’t-I situation. New Yorkers are used to considering a world of options for dinner every evening, but commissions charged by some delivery apps cut into restaurant margins...and also hike up the bill. Overcharging might keep would-be diners from ordering from their favorites on nights when the couch is calling their name.
ChowNow gives restaurants the ability to take online orders, without commissions — and plans are fairly priced for participating businesses, who keep 100 percent of their proceeds. For customers, there are no hidden fees, meaning that prices don’t spiral out of control with hidden “convenience” charges, which might never even make it to restaurants anyway.
Up your takeout game with these ChowNow partners across the city, and support a new spot or an old favorite with every order. You’ll put more money back in restaurants’ registers, without emptying your own bank account in the process.

Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.Read More
