Support local restaurants, coffee shops by ordering take out or delivery

by Linda Hubbard on April 2, 2020

We felt lucky last Saturday night as we sheltered-in-place while eating delicious roast chicken from Selby’s delivered via DoorDash. Selby’s is part of the locally-owned Bacchus Group of restaurants that have consistently served great chicken (think Village Pub and Mayfield Cafe). It is currently offering one family meal a day with the menu changing a bit from week to week.

We also got an email from an InMenlo reader who had ordered “to go” from Bistro Vida wondering if it would be helpful to get the word out on other restaurants, many also locally-owned, that are offering take out and/or delivery.

Supporting local restaurants gives them the ability to retain more staff as well as getting a tasty home-delivered meal. So here’s a list, maybe not comprehensive, but what is on our radar.

Note: This is a fluid situation, some that were open near the beginning of the shelter in place, like Left Bank, have since closed completely. If a favorite local (Atherton, Menlo Park, Portola Valley, Woodside) restaurant of yours is missing, please add it in the Comments section along with how to order.

Thanks for this reminder. I’m trying to order take away at least once a week. Last week it was Jeffrey’s 650-322-1959. Today I ordered take away from Sultanas 650-322-4343. I will continue to support my local community as long as I’m able.
