Karen Akunowicz: Your Guide to Takeout and Delivery Deals during the Coronavirus Shutdown

Though all dining rooms are closed during COVID-19, Boston-area restaurants are acting fast to offer new, safe ways to reach customers.


Even before Gov. Charlie Baker mandated that all restaurants close for on-site consumption until at least April 6, Boston-area chefs and restaurateurs have been increasing sanitary protocols and adding new online ordering and delivery options. GrubHub and Uber Eats are also incentivizing their services right now. After all, eating well is an important way to stay healthy in these trying times. From curbside pizza pickup, to do-it-yourself ramen, to family-style feasts that benefit families in need, check out these takeout options to continue to support local restaurants during the pandemic.

Fox & the Knife

Whether you’re craving comforting food like cheesy bread and buttery pasta, or looking for a Top Chef-approved cooking project, chef Karen Akunowicz is here to help. The James Beard award-winning chef has launched two online brands amidst the public health crisis. Fox At Home is a takeout and delivery menu of signature dishes like taleggio cheese-stuffed focaccia; broccoli Caesar salad; saffron spaghetti with clams; and pork Milanese. Fox Pasta, meanwhile, is for freshly made pastas by the pound and hand-packed pints of sauces and ricotta. Call the restaurant to order between 4-9 p.m. for pickup or free delivery in South Boston, the Seaport, and the South End.
