Over the course of the past week, the coronavirus pandemic has turned L.A.’s restaurant industry upside down. When the city implemented a temporary ban on in-house dining, eateries had to decide whether to make quick adjustments and focus on takeout or to simply close their doors until the order lifts.
The decision was especially fraught for L.A.’s classic restaurants, many of which have never made their food available for delivery in the age of apps. Several have temporarily shuttered, but these five are hanging in there to give Angelenos some classic comfort when they need it the most.
Apple Pan is offering delivery on orders for the first time in its 73-year history, as well as debit and credit card payment. The iconic restaurant is partnering with Postmates to get Angelenos their hickory burger, fries, and apple pie fix. The full menu is available for pick-up, take-out, and delivery from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
If you’re craving some French bistro food, Taix, family-owned since 1927, is offering delivery and pick-up orders. The famous Echo Park restaurant is providing its full menu online, which includes cheesy baked French onion soup and their delicious French dip sandwich. Delivery and pick-up availability is from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. through Grubhub or directly from the restaurant.
Prime rib delivered straight to your door for a really bougie evening in. Legendary Lawry’s-owned restaurant Tam O’Shanter is offering drive-up or delivery services, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 to 8 p.m., for Angelenos in need of some steak-house fare.
Dana Tana’s, an institution since 1964, is offering its menu of Italian comfort classics for pick-up and delivery from 4 to 10 p.m. every day. From their famous spaghetti to cannoli, there’s something to keep you satisfied during the quarantine.
The classic diner chain is offering a massive breakfast care package that feeds up to 10 people for an unreal $35. The deal is available for pick-up at all of the chain’s locations starting at 7 a.m. until supplies last (one per customer).
