Feed your whole quarantine squad with these Miami restaurant family meals

Whether it’s just you and your significant other or you and five kids, feeding a family of any size after many (many!) days of quarantine can be a challenge. There’s the issue of disparate tastes as well as the lack of inspiration if you’re spending most days cooking. Delivery usually solves the latter problem, but wait ‘til you see that bill once everyone’s tallied up their orders. Yikes. Get around feeling stumped and going bankrupt with a family meal.

One of the many great innovations to come from this pandemic (including virtual farmers’ markets and online museum tours) are these sophisticated combos that typically include a starter, entreé and, if you choose wisely, a dessert to share with your brood. Some feed two, others feed four while others can be increased per portion to accommodate families of all sizes. Most of these need to be taken out or picked up curbside, though delivery is available in some instances. The best part? Zero cooking is required, so you can open, serve and get back to whatever you’re currently binging on Netflix even faster.

Phuc Yea

This week, the restaurant launches daily specials for two people. Each is three courses and features a starter or a salad, a main and the irresistible bread pudding for dessert. Mondays are reserved for vegan pho, Wednesdays are for chicken or beef pho and Fridays are Vietnamese fried chicken nights. $45–$55

Chug’s

We call it a family meal, Chug’s calls it a takeout cantina—tomayto, tomahto. Pick your protein (pollo a la plancha, chicken fricassee or mojo roast pork) to go with white rice, black beans and a side salad for a complete Cuban meal for four. $35

Coyo Taco

Tacos, you can never have just one. Luckily, this new deal makes it so your family can enjoy multiple tacos alongside you. Select your protein (pollo al carbon, carne asada, cochinita pibil, seared gulf shrimp, cauliflower or mushrooms) and you’ll get 12 tortillas (!) plus two sauces and two sides of your choosing—like Mexican street corn and cilantro rice—to go with all of it. Not included but highly recommended is a gallon of margaritas for $40. Meals are available at Coyo’s Brickell, Coral Gables and Wynwood locations. $25–$34

The Surf Club

Make your night in extra special with a three-course meal from Thomas Keller’s Surfside restaurant. Each is $29 and includes an appetizer, such as a salad, an entrée, which changes daily, and a couple of fresh-baked cookies for dessert. Meals can be pre-paid online and are available for curbside pick-up at the Surf Club’s north tower (as shown in the Instagram post below!). Feeding more than just yourself? You can add up to 12 prix-fixe feasts to your cart!

Taquiza

“Taquiza at home” is what the delightful taco shack is calling its Mexican dinner for four. You’ll get two pounds of meat (or veggies) and 20 hand-rolled blue corn tortillas, plus two sides (quinoa salad and elote). Every order comes with four non-alcoholic beverages. Order by 5pm and your meal will be delivered between 5 and 8pm that day anywhere in Miami-Dade or Broward countries for free. $60
