While some restaurants are still open for in-person dining, with rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in western Pennsylvania, many establishments have chosen to transition (once again) to offering takeout and to-go options only.
During the first phase of the pandemic, we highlighted dozens of options for takeout on ‘Takeout Tuesdays,’ featuring a wide variety of restaurants and cuisines. We’re bringing the practice back for the foreseeable future, sharing our picks for where to order in every Tuesday. If you have favorites, let us know in the comments, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
And, don’t forget to follow #TakeOutPGH on Instagram to see picks from around the city, too!
