Iconic restaurants around the city are putting their menus on delivery apps to serve those in isolation.
Rigatoni at Carbone
Based on the famed Italian-American restaurants of the 20th century, Carbone’s rich menu is up on Caviar. Try three of the restaurant’s most popular dishes: spicy rigatoni vodka, tortellini al ragu and the famous Mario's Meatballs. A selection of red and white wines are also available to make the quarantine more bearable.
The wildly popular Carmine’s is now accessible for delivery via phone call. The restaurant’s entire menu will be online, including favorites such as the shrimp scampi, penne alla vodka and chicken parmigiana.
The Cookie Cake Co.
The beloved bakery ships nationwide and even offers a cake of the month club. The cookie cakes range from an Easter Cadbury egg confection to gluten- and egg-free versions.
Recognized as one of the finest Mediterranean restaurants in the world, chef Costas Spiliadis’s entrance into the American food scene, Estorio Milos, is now providing meals through Grubhub. Find classic Greek dishes such as gemista, stuffed peppers or tomatoes and a split pea blend with onion and garlic and horiatiki salad, along with filet mignon and market fish with olive oil and lemon sauce.
Hall by ODO
Chef Hiroki Odo’s new restaurant, Hall, will continue its dining services through pickup and delivery options via GrubHub for the surrounding neighborhood. The online menu will be a replica of the restaurant’s lunch meals, consisting of the popular U.S. wagyu burger, a six-piece nigiri with sushi roll set and various other delicacies. All proceeds from take-out will be donated to relief efforts for COVID-19.
Short ribs at Ivy Lane
Through its sister sites Phillipe Chow and Treadwell, Ivy Lane is offering the Ivy Burger, a dry-aged beef blend patty with cheddar cheese, housemade smoked ketchup and sweet potato fries. Also, don’t miss the short ribs and gnocchi with mornay sauce.
Caviar is where stay-at-home diners will find the Roman eats of Lupa. The renowned cacio e pepe and bucatini all'amatriciana made it to the menu, along with a 7-ounce sirloin with seasonal garnishes. The Caviar menu also boasts a roasted chicken marinated in olive oil and black pepper and braised oxtail in tomato and soffritto.
Established in 1887, steakhouse Peter Luger created its new pickup service based in the Williamsburg location, where customers can choose from a limited menu and a variety of butcher shop goods. All items can be ordered through a phone call to the restaurant, and those with large orders are advised to call hours in advance.
A range of dishes such as premium pastas and roasted vegetables are displayed on Rao’s Doordash delivery menu. In tandem with the meals, a series of sauces, from marinara to puttanesca, is also distributed.
The new delivery menu by Rezdora highlights a cook-at-home pasta selection. A customer chooses desired fresh pasta and sauce, then receives a package with an in-depth, foolproof recipe to create the perfect Italian meal. The menu also showcases three gelato flavors—pistachio, sea salt caramel and baci—tiramisu for two and a large variety of wines.
Located in the heart of Soho, this quintessential brunch destination is now open for delivery through Caviar. A wide variety of bagels are waiting, and pro tip: try the house salmon sandwich.
