With Gov. Baker’s order to close restaurants, they will be one of the hardest hit during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The vast majority of Watertown restaurants remain open for take out, and many also deliver.
Many restaurants around town put up messages on social media or on their websites. Food delivery apps such as Grubhub or DoorDash offer delivery from many places around town. If you know of others, please send information to email@example.com or leave a comment below.
One of the most inspiring was Red Lentil, which announced on its website:
In response to (Gov. Baker’s) declaration of a public health emergency last evening, the dining room is now closed. However, we are still offering delivery and takeout. Our hours will be 11 AM to 8 PM. In an effort to maintain social distancing, we will do all we can to make you comfortable while continuing to offer healthy, delicious food. Select Contact-free delivery at checkout through GrubHub, for instance, and drivers will call/text when they arrive and drop off your order on the doorstep, in the lobby, or other area designated by you. Watertown is and always has been strong, and we will pull through together. We appreciate your continued patronage. As a small local business, we stand to suffer a great blow from this pandemic. The support you show now will help offset that impact. We will keep you updated as changes arise on our end.
