The Best Fine-Dining Delivery Services in New York

23rd March 2020 // By Emma Reynolds

As the Covid-19 crisis upheaves our daily lives, many restaurants have been forced to temporarily close, uncertain of their future. Because many of these small businesses operate on such thin margins, companies are relying on delivery services (so you can practice social distancing but still enjoy your favorite dishes) to keep their businesses afloat. Even fine-dining restaurants, who may have never dipped into the delivery category before, are offering fine-dining delivery services, private catering dropped off at your door and on-demand meals in both New York and the Hamptons. Elite Traveler rounds up the best restaurants to order from right now.

Part of Delicious Hospitality Group (which also runs Legacy Records, Easy Victor, Parcelle and Ada’s Place), Charlie Bird and Pasquale Jones are now offering family dinners for pickup or delivery via delivery app Resy or the website. For New York City residents only, choose from Pasquale Jones chopped salad and lasagna bolognese, Charlie Bird’s farro salad, roasted chicken and cacio e pepe, or both. Also part of DHG, Parcelle (the first retail concept from the group that sells wine) is also selling and delivering boxes of food in partnership with Baldor Specialty Foods. You can pre-order food from local purveyors and farmers, from dried goods, fresh vegetables and snacks, and have it delivered to your door. Parcelle ensures that all preventative measures recommended by the CDC (like washing hands and sanitizing) will be made in advance of deliveries and only 50 deliveries will be made per day. Parcelle also is selling a bundle of six bottles of wine, because how else would you get through staying at home for so long? dhgnyc.com
