Say hello to Resy At Home Specials, a four-week takeout program that will showcase the creativity of some of the city’s best restaurants, via exclusive meals — available only on Resy.
Here’s how it works. Each Monday, we will unveil a unique theme on this page and on Instagram. The participating restaurants will then cook up special takeout meals to be ordered via the Resy app or Resy.com. The meals will be available for the entire week, before changing entirely to a new theme on the following Monday. Consider it a weekly special.
Place an order like you would make a Resy: Find an available day/time for your chosen restaurant, select the party size (here, that’s the number of people that the meal serves), click on the new pickup button, and show up at the right time. Payment and gratuity are finalized upon ordering.
