Are you about ready to call it quits with your kitchen? We don’t blame you. It’s been a long year of cooking and cleaning and more cooking and more cleaning—a vicious cycle you’ll need more than the best pizza in Miami to break for good. There are only so many slices you can stomach before you’re back to looking for something else to eat. Isn’t that right? Fortunately, some of the best restaurants in Miami offer solid takeout and delivery options so you’ll never have to cook again. We’re talking Miami’s best sushi, fresh tacos and special occasion eats for a fancy dinner at home you only have to unpack and serve. Goodbye, dirty dishes. Hello, delicious food you did not make yourself.

Restaurants Wynwood

Yes, you can enjoy the omakase at home. Wynwood sushi restaurant Omakai (and temporarily in Aventura as well) is packing up the chef’s-choice sushi meal for diners to feast on while staying in. The elegant black box has partitions for each portion of the meal and includes sauces in individual containers, a wet nap and chopsticks. The best part? On the inside of the box are printed instructions telling you exactly what to eat and in what order, plus how to dress each piece as if the chef had rolled it up before you and placed it on your plate. There are three options to choose from and both takeout and delivery are available.

4. La Mar

Restaurants Peruvian Brickell Key

One of the prettiest takeout options we’ve seen come out of lockdown is, hands down, La Mar’s. Though, are you surprised? The restaurant that used to serve dessert out of handpainted dollhouses at brunch and continuously wows with its vibrant ceviches and cocktails would be the one to take delivery up a notch. La Mar’s to-go orders are packed in sturdy boxes, wrapped in a colorful ribbon and marked with your name and timestamped so you know exactly when it was cooked and packed. Inside, you’ll find a menu and a link to a Spotify playlist to help recreate the dine-in experience at home.

10. Night Owl Cookies

Restaurants Bakeries Design District

Miami’s late-night purveyor of gooey, made-to-order, donut-sized cookies is holding strong as one of the city’s best dessert delivery. It used to be that only FIU college students and people living nearby had access to these dank treats but thanks to a second store in the Miami Design District, nearly everyone can get their hands on these. If a box seems like too much—it’s not. Night Owl Cookies double as breakfast and, if all else fails, freeze wonderfully.
