Yes, you can now order takeout or delivery from many of Boston’s best restaurants, but some have taken the extra step of selling readymade foods and other pantry essentials. Whether that means scratch-made pastas and sauces, DIY pizza kits, or even Angostura bitters for your next old fashioned, here’s a rundown of venues to help restock. Don’t forget: Now is the time to support the restaurants you love. (If you’re specifically looking to get wine to go, we have a guide for that, too.)
Food-wise, Alcove is selling fresh rigatoni by the pound, plus pasta salad, bread and butter, spicy marinara, and nut-free pesto by the pint.
