While many Los Angeles restaurants have shifted to doing takeout and delivery, others have become de facto marketplaces for their communities. When you can’t find flour or eggs at the grocery store, or that delivery won’t come for another two weeks, this is the way to buy pantry and household goods, fresh produce, seafood, DIY meal kits, cocktails, wine and more.
And above all, support the restaurants you love.
