Now that Miami restaurants have been required to (or voluntarily) closed to control the spread of coronavirus, delivery and curbside pickup are the new normal when it comes to dining out. Many of our local favorites already offer delivery (you can find them on Uber Eats, Postmates, etc.), but a handful of new options have sprouted up as coronavirus concerns worsen. These places are launching family meals-to-go, takeout that can feed an army and high-end options you can enjoy at home while maintaining a safe distance from everyone.
We’ll be updating this guide as we hear of new takeout and delivery specials, so keep checking back for more delicious intel.

The Surf Club Restaurant
The notoriously expensive—and equally amazing—Thomas Keller restaurant just launched a $42 fried chicken Monday special. The deal, available for takeout, includes enough fried chicken and garlic biscuits for four people, plus two sides, which rotate weekly. Small and large buckets are also available for takeout daily ($38 for 5 pieces, $68 for 10), as well as a limited selection of menu favorites.
The buzzy Little Haiti restaurant slings sandwiches, like La Pollita fried chicken, and several popular dishes (like crispy polenta and tagliolini al nero) from its ventanita starting Thursday, from noon to 8pm. Select natural wines will also be on sale via the walk-up window.
Stop by the adorable date spot in Downtown and grab discounted bottles of wine to enjoy at home while practicing social-distancing. The restaurant is known for its killer list of natural and European wines, which they’re selling for 30 percent off. Don’t sleep on this deal.
The MiMo spot is offering free delivery to people in the neighborhood and it extends delivery service to Miami Beach with a minimum $75 purchase. Noodle party, anyone?
Whether you’re feeding yourself or feeding an army, Caja’s new family-meal special, available at its Coral Gables location, makes it easy to eat-in every day. The meal will change daily and customers will have the option to customize portion size—from one to, well, many.
Sweet Liberty Drinks & Supply
You may not be able to drink at Sweet Liberty but you can eat as though you were there. Starting this week, the South Beach watering hole—ranked on the World’s 50 Best Bars—introduces delivery via Postmates and Uber Eats from 4 to 10pm every day. We don’t know about you, we’re diving into a bowl of cauliflower nachos ASAP.
Dine like it’s happy hour on a Friday: Brickell’s rooftop bar and restaurant Sugar is now delivering its cocktail-friendly bites. Dishes like the bang bang shrimp, Korean spicy chicken wings and tuna tartare rolls are available every day from noon to 11pm. Plus, Sugar partners with local busy ice cream shop Aubi and Ramsa to offer spiked sweets with your meal. Cheers, folks.
The Coconut Grove restaurant introduces cantinas—the Cuban term for meal deliveries/takeout—available for one person ($10) or up to four ($35). Meals include a protein (think pollo a la plancha, mojo roast park), a salad, white rice and black beans. Orders are taken over the phone (305-534-8722) and meals must be picked up. The rest of the menu is available for delivery via Uber Eats.
Kush and LoKal
Get burgers, fries, chili and all kinds of house-made comfort food dishes delivered via DoorDash and Postmates. The best part about ordering from these Kush Hospitality restaurants? Beer growlers are also available to go.
Pasta typically travels well, but there’s nothing like a freshly made bowl of noodles. For that reason, Coral Gables restaurant Eating House introduces pasta kits to-go starting Wednesday, March 18. Each feeds four people and includes a green salad and mini dirt cups. Choose from pesto, carbonara and pomodoro, among other sauces. The regular menu will also be available for delivery via third-party apps.
Can’t go a day without a Veza beer? The Wynwood brewery kicks off contactless pick-up today. Order online, select your pick-up time, pull up and pop-up your trunk while you wait for someone to deposit the goods (we suggest you go big, like a growler) in your car for you.
One of Miami’s top-rated restaurants turns into a barbecue joint. AlterQ opens on Monday, March 23, with a special menu of smoked meats and elevated backyard grub, like cornbread with umami butter and brioche cinnamon rolls. Food is available for pick-up or delivery from noon to 9pm.
The Tulum transplant that previously did not offer takeout or delivery starts a pick-up service, featuring a special menu of all the big hits. From tostadas and guac to those yummy quesadillas, the best of Gitano will be available for curbside takeaway starting today.
Love tacos? Hate paying for delivery? Call up the Ocean Drive restaurant for gratis delivery for all Miami Beach residents. The full dinner menu is available from 11am to 8pm.
We miss the parker house rolls and the pasta and the delicious Green Goblin cocktails that got us through many a bad day. But until the Downtown bar can welcome us back, Jaguar Sun is turning into a takeout-only operation. Check their Instagram stories for the latest menu and email them at firstname.lastname@example.org to place your order. Favorites such as the bucatini ($11) and kouign-aman ($5) are up for grabs.
Fresh off its five-year anniversary, the downtown introduces delivery and takeout options, as well as a new all-day menu. Call ahead to pick up your order to get 10 percent off (786-536-2749) or order online and get it delivered. The restaurant is also offering sommelier pairings over the phone (How great is that?!) and 30 percent off a bottle when you add it to your pick-up order.
