One of the innovations to come out of Coronavirus has been the wave of top restaurants offering take away’s. As we’re plunged into Tier 3, it’s time to support London’s restaurants and swap in-person bookings for home delivery. These three new companies make it even easier to do so:
The Dishpatch picks out favourite dishes from places like Cafe Murano, Andrew Edmunds, Bubala, 10 Greek Street, Little Viet Kitchen and more to create monthly menus. These are then delivered cold on Friday mornings in insulated boxes ready to be heated and finished at home. They regularly sell out, so subscribe to their mailing list to be the first to hear when each month’s menu drops. In December there’s also the Christmas menu that can be ordered for delivery on 23 December and includes roast turkey by Andrew Edmunds and Welsh Ribeye and truffle gratin from 10 Greek Street.
Similarly, Restokit has partnered with a selection of London’s best restaurants. You’ll find Bar Duoro, Brigadiers, Galvin, José Pizarro, Gymkhana, Sabor and Momo on there and you can order feasts for 2-4 people as well as sides, puddings and wine. There’s a little more flexibility in that you can choose the day you want your meal delivered, and they arrive in insulated boxes that will keep in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Delivery is nationwide, so it’s a new opportunity to eat from London restaurants further afield.
As the name suggests Supper.London is a London-centric, and you enter your postcode to find out which restaurants can deliver to you. The selection is top end and includes Hakkasan, Gordon Ramsay’s Maze Grill, Fortnum’s At Home and Nobu. It operates more like Deliveroo with a longer menu from each place so that you can choose your own dishes and drinks to go alongside. Food is delivered hot on special temperature-controlled bikes.
Finally, you can order directly from lots of London restaurants by visiting their websites. For a treat, we recommend Bocca Di Lupo’s three-course feasts for two. In December there’s the choice of Piemonte Partridge which comes with vitello tonnato to start followed by partridge, polenta and bagna caoda and Bonet for pudding, or the Piemonte Contadina with anchovy col verde followed by Capunet with mash and then fig leaf pannacotta. And especially for Londoners they are doing a New Year’s Eve feast for two which lines up a very promising evening with negroni, Prosecco and six courses including roast suckling pig with potato, grapes and chestnuts. Corbin & King are also doing Home Delivery, including Christmas and Boxing Day feasts from The Wolseley here.
