Outdoor dining is in full swing in New York, but as the weather cools, we’re grateful for the city’s strong takeout and delivery scene. Restaurants like Kopitiam offer a taste of Malaysian breakfast on the Lower East Side, while Saint Julivert and La Vara are making a tiny corner of Brooklyn taste like a beach-side holiday with their project Takeaway. Over in Queens, Amore Pizza serves up classic pies to go, and who can say “no” to a New York slice?
With many meals at these spots hovering just under the “$20 or less” mark, delivery or takeout from these spots won’t break the bank. Pair your dishes with a cold Coke, and remember: No matter if you’re picking up or getting delivery, tip generously.
Be sure to check each of these spots before you go, as the state continues to adapt to new guidelines and regulations. A number of NYC’s restaurants have resumed (or pared down) dine-in service, and this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns.
