Drive-Thru, Takeout Foodie Notes

I will do several posts about local restaurants adapting to survive the COVID-19 restrictions. Please, if you can, order delivery, car-side, pickup, curb side, takeout, drive-thru and/gift cards at least once a day. If you love a place, now is the time to show it.

First, some humor from Matlack’s, the new restaurant in the former PreFunk space on Front Street in Boise.

Asiago’s is offering takeout and delivery, and more importantly, gift cards that can be purchased online. The gift card money is going directly to employees. I can’t love this enough.

Chandlers. They’ve never done takeout and delivery before, but are giving it a try. Delivering wine, too. A slightly modified menu, but still offering the Del Monaco. Check it out here.

Debi from Black Bear Diner at 7530 W. State St. brought samples to the studio today. Curbside delivery and takeout available. I had the hobo omelet. Well, half of the hobo omelet. The serving portions are generous and delicious. Order online.
