Nothing beats the joy of a familiar restaurant in full swing on a warm spring evening, or the thrill of a night out at that new, bustling spot. But we also know that the value of restaurants goes beyond the physical dining room. Restaurants are vital parts of our lives, our communities, our neighborhoods. Now, they need our support. So whether that means enjoying your favorite yakitori from the friendly confines of your couch, or splurging for a special occasion bottle of wine from the nearby pizzeria, this is a great time to discover restaurants to love — at home.
