We are now almost a week into San Francisco's "Shelter in Place" order. Hundreds of bars have closed, and several restaurants have had to shutter, such as Puerto Alegre in the Mission, which was celebrating its 50th birthday this year. It's now locked and boarded up. Popular eatery Souvla also temporarily shuttered all of its locations.
However, many food establishments have come up with creative solutions to continue to feed the public.
Some eateries are doing curbside pickup, offering take-home cooking kits or to-go cocktails, and some are even pairing orders with toilet paper.
We've compiled a list of restaurants doing shelter-in-place specials, followed by a list of restaurants serving their regular menus via takeout and delivery, so you can enjoy a good meal and support local businesses while you're stuck at home.
Canela Bistro & Wine Bar (2272 Market St.) is offering pre-prepared paella kits, complete with ingredients and a recipe card. It is also offering provisions boxes, such as a fruit and veggie box for two for $49. The restaurant's full regular takeout menu is also available. Check out the menu and order via Square.
Zazie (941 Cole St.) is offering curbside pickup, serving its full menu daily from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and dinner 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Customers can also order mimosa kits for $30, which include a bottle of champagne and choice of mango, orange or cranberry juice and (optional) stemless champagne flutes for $5. Wine is also available for $25, you can order a bottle of red, wine or pink; selections will change daily (as with all other restaurants, libations must be served with food).
And as an added bonus, all bottled wine orders come with a roll of toilet paper!
Orders are pickup only and 30% from each order will go to all staff to help them go through the closure. While all orders are currently done over the phone, keep an eye on its website, as its owner says it might soon offer online ordering. Call (415) 564-5332 to order.
Che Fico (838 Divisadero St). is cooking up daily family meals (feeds two to three people) during the shelter in place. Daily offerings will be posted at 3 p.m. each day on its instagram page. The cost is $50, but if you can’t afford a meal right now, it’s FREE.
