Update November 2021: We put up this list in 2020 to help connect restaurants and those that wanted to support them. The crisis may be fading, but many still want to support restaurants and also give gift cards as actual gifts! We are going through it to update it over the next couple weeks. To find restaurants doing take-out or delivery see our recommended list that includes current status and is regularly updated.
Independent operators are listed first in roughly alphabetical order with a link to the restaurant site and then the gift card link if applicable. Those restaurants that are part of a larger group (like Knightsbridge, Neighborhood Restaurant Group, etc) are at the bottom. If you don’t see a place you are looking for, they still might have a way to give support, so contact them directly. Some places are listed as placeholders. They have “None” in the comment area.
