COVID-19 has changed the way we live in a very short period of time. However, you can take steps to lighten up your self-isolation by jazzing up your dining table with linens, the good silverware and fine china, add a couple of candles, and place an order from one of your favorite restaurants.
Many are offering curbside service, so call it in, pay for it over the phone, and get it handed to you from the convenience of your car. Another great way to order is through PostMates, GrubHub and DoorDash, each with their own collection of restaurants, and UberEats offers grocery delivery as well.
Some places have come up with creative solutions for customers and for staff. Others have something new to offer. If your business is not listed below, and you are offering takeout please head over to our Facebook page (facebook.com/palmspringslifemagazine) and add your restaurant to the list in the Comment section so everyone can find you.
We’re living in very fluid time that changes day to day, so understand this list is by no means complete, but a starter. When in doubt, visit the restaurant’s website.
