Dine In with Take Out
Kysha Harris Food Editor, @SCHOPgirl | 4/9/2020, midnight
Are you asking yourself, “Where should I order/pick up food nowadays?” AmNewsFOOD will feature a handful of our favorites each week in our “Dine In with Take Out” series. Give these a go!
Mountainbird (www.ilovemountainbird.com, 607.358.6125)––menu changes and taking orders by phone only. Should it be available, my meal will be chicken liver mousse ($3), black truffle chicken wings ($8), crispy fish sandwich ($14) and that essential sticky toffee fig cake ($5) that you warm in the microwave for 45 seconds. It’s everything.
Vinateria (www.vinaterianyc.com)––Even during a pandemic I need my black spaghetti ($23) but I might try one of their $15 pasta specials, definitely the bacalao croquettes ($8) and their FULL wine list is 20% off or beer and signature cocktails to go.
The Grange (www.thegrangebarnyc.com, 212.491.1635) ––This is one place I have been remiss in visiting more. Looking at their abbreviated menu, the spicy roasted cauliflower steak ($19) with harvest vegetable mash, sautéed kale, balsamic beets and crispy chickpeas is calling my name along with a couple of their signature cocktails ($9) bottled up like a good ol’ Harlem nutcracker.
Janie’s Life Changing Baked Goods (www.janiebakes.com)––If you have not tried their pie crust cookies, this is the time to order them in their care package ($20) with some half-baked chocolate chip ones too.
QUICK SAFETY TIPS:
• Choose contactless delivery/pick up when ordering.
• Pay online or through your smartphone if possible.
• Immediately remove food containers from bags at the door.
• Wash your hands and disinfect the outside of the containers before opening.
• Decant all food onto your own dishes.
• Refrigerate leftovers immediately and try to consume by the next day.
