Welcome to the ultimate, coronavirus-era listings of options for Los Angeles food delivery and takeout. These restaurants, food providers, bars, and shops are keeping L.A. well-fed while we stay at home.
Times are tough for everyone, and the hospitality industry has been hit particularly hard. Many thousands of Americans employed at restaurants and bars have lost their jobs; nearly 11 percent of all restaurants in the country may never open again after the pandemic. But you can help keep this vital sector of our society alive by supporting your favorite local businesses–or maybe even use this time to try out the fare of somewhere you never went before.
All the Los Angeles food delivery and takeout options listed here were accurate that the time created, but conditions may change fast, so please be sure to check with the vendor to confirm availability.
