In the wake of temporary closures to help suppress the spread of COVID-19, Chicago restaurants are stepping up to offer delivery and curbside pick-up options for those who want a break from cooking at home. Plus, diners can support their favorite restaurant by purchasing merchandise online.

Additionally, when ordering delivery, the restaurant community encourages patrons to share their order on social media with the hashtag #TakeOutChicago. The objective of the campaign is to remind people of the diverse eating options while showing support and solidarity for the restaurant industry. Below are options for supporting Chicago’s restaurants and hotels.
