This isn't a list of all restaurants who offer take-out. It's a list of independent restaurants who've had to adapt to remain in business.

When times are good the profit margins in the restaurants industry are in the 5-10% range which means making money is already difficult. And with the recent mandate within the City of Vancouver to close their dining rooms, many restaurants have shuttered their premises with no idea if they will open their doors again. Ian Tostenson, president of the BC Restaurant and Food Services Association, estimates 15% of these restaurants might not re-open and personally I think that number is on the low side. That’s why we need to support the restaurants who have moved to a take-out model to remain in business. Because if we don’t, our favourite establishments might not be there when this is all over.

There are some great deals to be had right now with a number of restaurants offering 10-20% off their regular menu prices. And to make it as safe as possible, most are encouraging ordering by phone, email or via their websites and delivering the food to your car, curb-side.

Do you need help right now?

If you are quarantined at home or have lost your job recently, there is help. If you know someone who is in need, please pass this on to them!

This list is an ever-evolving work in progress and I will be adding more restaurants as I become aware of them. At the bottom of this page is a form to let me know of establishments to add to the list. Please share this widely and tell me of places that should be on it. Let’s help the chefs and restaurateurs who’ve tireless fed us through the good times. Remember, we’re all in this together.
