Charm City Takeout Guide

An easy-access guide to the spots that remain open for to-go service.

If there is any good that can come of the mandatory bar and restaurant closures across the state—aside from, of course, slowing the spread of COVID-19—it’s seeing how the resilient hospitality industry has come together to support one another during these surreal times.

Longtime restaurant publicist and industry advocate Dave Seel has started a Facebook group to share resources and propose relief efforts for culinary professionals. Industry veteran Abby Hopper has created a Virtual Tip Jar for locals to send a few dollars to their favorite servers, bartenders, and baristas while dining rooms remain closed.

But above all, supporters of the city’s dining scene have come out in droves to promote carryout and delivery service, which makes it easy to support your favorite small businesses when they need it the most. Can’t decide what you’re feeling for your next meal? Here’s an easy-access guide with some of the many spots offering carryout and delivery, and more information on how to order:

Breweries, Wineries, and Liquor Stores
