We’re all in the same boat right now. We can’t dine out, but we want to support our favorite restaurants. And it doesn’t matter if you’re a whiz in the kitchen or someone who’s always survived on packaged food: Takeout for lunch and dinner is sometimes the only enjoyment we get during a pandemic-filled day.
Just like everyone else, even professional chefs need a break from their stoves. In Los Angeles, they’re showing love for their favorite neighborhood joints just like the rest of us, be it a hot new pizza pop-up in Atwater Village or a noodle house in the SGV. We’ve gathered a few chefs and restaurateurs from our favorite Resy spots to weigh in on where and what they’re ordering right now.
It’s the perfect reminder that takeout remains one of the best ways to support the restaurants you love. And that especially matters for the small independent ones that make this one of the greatest food cities in the world.
