The Best New York City Takeout and Delivery Restaurants

The Best New York City Takeout and Delivery Restaurants -

As quick as a flash, New York City’s restaurants and bars nimbly responded to the Coronavirus pandemic by offering takeout and delivery services. Whilst most have now thrown their doors back open to customers, many still deliver their alluring eats straight to your location, allowing you to enjoy sumptuous, restaurant-quality meals at home or office.

From hole-in-the-wall style joints to Michelin starred restaurants, whether you’re seeking a healthy breakfast or ritzy dinner followed by killer cocktails, here we’ve curated the best takeout and delivery restaurants in NYC.

The DB Edition - Dimes NYC 


This tiny-but-hip Lower East Side canteen is all about globally-inspired, nutritious dishes. Tucked away on Division St, Dimes has a serious rep for delicious breakfasts.

If their acai bowls overflowing with berries, nuts and granola and just-pressed fruit smoothies don’t whet your appetite, then Dimes’ show-stopping Breakfast Burrito loaded with egg, avocado, mango salsa and sweet potato certainly will. 

Breakfast adventurers that want a side order of spice to kickstart their day should opt for the Breakfast Sandwich, whose eggs, cheese and avo come turbocharged with pickled jalapenos and hot sauce.

Complement your healthy breakfast with one of Dimes’ peppy cayenne lemonades or iced matcha lattes.

The DB Edition - Mark's Off Madison


Founded by legendary chef Mark Strausman, Mark’s Off Madison marries his flair for classic Jewish dishes with a passion for Italian cuisine. This Madison Avenue eatery’s weekend brunches are an indulgent delight. 

Pick from his classic Straussie’s bagels stuffed with cream cheese, or Mark’s Salmon Challah Benedict; two poached eggs on sliced Nova, homemade challah toast and cayenne Hollandaise sauce. 

Potato latkes? Yes please! And while you’re at it, no Jewish brunch would be complete without one of MOM’s smoked sable or whitefish fish platters. All accompanied with moreish bagels and bialys. Don’t forget an ice tea on the side.

The DB Edition - Sant Ambroeus


Now with three NYC outposts, Sant Ambroeus has had a 40-year love affair with the city. With a commitment to using only the finest Italian ingredients, this collective of chic Milanese restaurants presents sumptuously authentic Italian dishes – all available for home delivery.

Linger over a lunch of Scaloppine ai Funghi, veal with roast porcini and wild mushrooms, alongside a fresh Nizzarda salad, and polished off with a decadent tiramisu. If pasta is calling, you’re spoilt for choice at Sant Ambroeus. Nothing beats SA’s riff on the timeless classic cacio e pepe, oozing with gooey, fine Pecorino Romano. 

If you’d like to cook à la Sant Ambroeus, you can also snap up its very own essential culinary tome, Sant Ambroeus: The Cafe Cookbook alongside your order. And who wouldn’t like to master SA’s perfect paninis?
