Questlove just dropped his favorite food takeout spots in L.A.

If we trust any musician with our palates, it’s Questlove.

The Roots frontman, percussionist, DJ, producer and all-around encyclopedia of music isn’t just an authority on sound—he also happens to be one of the biggest food-knowledge advocates in the entertainment world. He’s launched food symposiums and even co-authored a James Beard Award-nominated book—something to food about: Exploring Creativity with America’s Most Innovative Chefs—and his private potluck parties featuring some of the biggest chefs in the world are the stuff of legend.

Last week he shared his favorite delivery spots in Philly, and today, it’s L.A.’s turn: The Grammy winner took to Instagram today to list his favorite Los Angeles restaurants where he loves ordering takeout and delivery, a true food lover’s north star in these dark times.

“Support your local L.A. spots without dining in,” he wrote. “Some of these spots are offering groceries, produce and provisions, others are selling your favorite bites.”

We’ve gone ahead and updated Quest’s list with who’s currently open for delivery and takeout, so you can get to supporting—and eating like Quest—in no time.
