Title: List of establishments doing take-out
Post by: abcdefghijk on March 22, 2020, 09:57:00 AM
Perhaps we can start a list of places that remain open for take-out?

Jackson Diner is doing takeout (and is using masks and gloves to prepare and deliver food)

Laly's (take out and delivery): http://lalysrestaurantny.com/ (they're also on Seamless, etc. but if you order from them directly, they don't lose a cut to the app.)

Empanada Mama (aka Mama's Empanadas) on Roosevelt was open for take out today - very good procedures in place - they had me wipe off the pen with an alcohol swab before I signed my credit card receipt!

ETA: Arunee (Thai next to Starbucks) was open on Sunday.

 Had a delicious Marguerita pizza delivered last night from Mamma Rosa's Brick Oven Pizzeria on 37th Ave. The cost was $18.50 with delivery and it was prompt! Highly recommend ordering from them and they are lovely people on top of it all.

Are all the restaurant workers wearing masks?


I went to one last week and they didn't wear masks and the lady used bare hands to grab the ice. We lost our appetite. Not going to say where bc they are beloved but I'm tempted to

i've mostly been cooking at home, but have gone out to pick up food a couple of times. haven't seen anyone wearing masks, but everyone's wearing gloves.
Title: Re: List of establishments doing take-out
Post by: Jeffsayyes on March 26, 2020, 10:18:03 AM
Gloves aren't even that sanitary. Do you think they change gloves for every order? No, and do they ever wash their gloves? No. And can you feel if you get something wet on the gloves you are wearing? No. It's a topic that always occurs with sushi restaurants. I think at this time, masks for restaurant workers should be used, especially just to put the customers at ease.

Queenboro, Stand Alone Cheese, and Jahns are all doing takeout.  best to order directly to save them fees.  This is a hard time for small business owners.

Updating the above post... The Queensboro sent out a notice earlier stating that they are now temporarily closed.  :'(

Also, Due Fratelli tagged JHL with the following IG post:

I'm with Jeff on that. I passed by the Queensboro yesterday and was heartened to see that they had masks. A few days ago PioPio didn't, which was a problem.
Be a really good idea if all restaurant workers were wearing masks.

Table Wine is open for pickup and delivery and has a good system in place - order by phone - 718 478 9463 - and either have delivered or pick up from their shop. If picking up, you don't enter the store, just get their attention, give your name and they leave your purchase on a bench outside. You must pay by credit card over the phone, so they do not come in direct contact with customers.

I also noticed American Chicken, Emoji Burger, Just Made 4 You, and K&L Deli open. More and more restaurants are closed.

There were fewer vendors at the farmers market today as well.

I'm definitely torn between staying home and going out in public to support our local businesses. I generally don't use delivery and feel stranger about doing so now. If you are vulnerable, then I think delivery or relying on neighbors makes sense. Don't hesitate to reach out to people you know for help if you need it!

glad that K & L is open again. they shuttered for a couple of days there -- with a sign saying they were "planning a strategy."

they're doing business as usual, aside from the fact that they have the back 75 percent of the store blocked off and inaccessible. tables that form a barrier are the place to pick up orders. full menu right now.

i typed our address -- in the mid 70s -- into their doordash page, and by that method, it says delivery is available. i don't like using third party systems for all the reasons that have been detailed in posts here, but like you said, the restaurant's site is down.....

a big thanks to Jax Inn for Easter Sunday delivery. didn't have a way to assemble the usual meal, so we assembled a comfort food replica from Jax. dinnertime delivery was really speedy, and the portions seemed even more generous than usual (meaning VERY generous).

Jackson House delivers & takes phone pick-ups. The cook uses protection while cooking & there is a table at the counter to keep a distance if you pick up & pay.

Does Mama Rosa still do deliveries?

Thanks for the update!  I ordered tonight, over the phone to save them the Seamless fee.  My order came quickly and was accurate.  FYI cash only for delivery.

Ordered from Emoji Burger tonight for pickup. It was ready in about 12 minutes. I liked the burger, they make it medium well but the meat had a nice char and was still juicy. I wasn't crazy about the brioche bun, and fries were cold by the time I got home, but your mileage may vary. I was grateful that they were open. Their online menu was limited, but they handed our their usual order with the meal, so if you have a favorite burger, ask for it.

Adding to the list, Gino's pizza at 39-63  61 street is quite good. My son had it delivered(the Sicilian) and I thought it was better than Louie's or Sam's.

Saw on the JH facebook group that 969 Coffee was still open and stopped by today. The salmon sushi I got was fresh, tasty, and satisfied a Japanese food craving I've had for weeks. The guy in front of me got some onigiri sandwiches that also looked amazing.
Title: Re: List of establishments doing take-out
Post by: gemsiren on April 27, 2020, 10:33:37 PM
969 Coffee is a neighborhood gem. It's always one of our top options for takeout.

Pho Bac on Broadway is still open for takeout - not sure about delivery. Last time we ordered, they seemed to be out of broken rice and had only regular rice, though.

Mama's Empanadas on Northern is also open for takeout and delivery. We ordered a ton and froze them for future snacks.

La Caleñita Bakery/tacos on 83rd is also open for takeout, but they've remodeled and have a limited menu. Any idea if they changed owners or what's going on there? They were the only place in the hood to have birria :(
Title: Re: List of establishments doing take-out
Post by: dssjh on April 28, 2020, 12:27:00 PM
i'm sure it's not open right now, but Birrialandia cart on Roosevelt has amazing birria. Coatzingo also has a pretty decent birria de res, but again, not sure if they're open.

We were lucky enough to be away for the winter.  Our original plan was to return to JH on or around April 1st.  But - Since the news at that time was so sad, we decided to visit my sister in NC.  After a few weeks there we decided that we are basically treading water, and we can do that at home in JH. 
Since arriving, I have been happy and relieved to see basically everyone wearing masks. The shopping has been pretty good, and overall it feels like ‘there’s no place like Home’. 
While we were away we were missing a lot of the fantastic food here!  Since arriving we have been cooking daily, with the exception of a Delivery From : Ayata (Thai), Tacos Morelos (Mexican) and Asian Taste 86 (Indonesian)
Everyone here is so lucky to have easy access to incredibly delicious food! 

If you ever leave JH, you will miss it!   
Please give our small local restaurants business during this difficult time

Just a reminder that GrubHub and Seamless take a HUGE chunk of the $ when you use them.  When so many of our small businesses are struggling, I do my best make sure every dollar stays local with our restaurants.  As much as possible I have been calling to place orders directly.  I called ahead to order pickup from Lamoon tonight (cash/venmo only), and have gotten Hug Esan delivered as well (cash only for phone orders).

Anyone try their new fried chicken offering?  Looks good.

Also, have to recommend the taco cart across Roos from .... Birria.  If the crowd for the TJ beef is too big, just cross for great al pastor,  3 for 5$!
