You no longer have to break the bank to eat at some of New York City’s best restaurants.
The Michelin Guide, which anonymously critiques restaurants through a famously rigorous process, bestows its top restaurants one to three stars and is often considered by chefs and restaurant owners as one of the most coveted honors. These establishments almost always skew toward the fine dining-end of the spectrum (aka, you’re putting a dent into your credit card when dining out).
But now, more than ever, these restaurants are offering delivery for the time in response to more of us staying home. Time Out New York reached out to all the Michelin-rated spots in the city for the comprehensive list you’ll find below. While no three-starred spots—those weren’t our favorites anyhow—are currently offering takeout (or even alcohol to-go), these are exciting menus that we can finally enjoy in the comforts of our own apartments. Bon appétit!
No New York restaurants with three Michelin stars currently offer delivery or takeout.
While this elegant, Alsatian-inspired restaurant is temporarily closed, its next door shop Gabriel Kreuther Handcrafted Chocolate is taking delivery orders (featuring items you’d find on the dessert menu). Treats like dark chocolate krunchy krispies with caramelized almonds, puffed rice, crystallized oranges and pain d’epices is the sugar rush we crave.
Diners regularly drop a few hundred dollars to dine here (that’s before tax, tip and alcohol). But you can order a la carte through Toast to feast on caviar ($350), duck breast ($29) or a crowd favorite like the Le Cheeseburger ($19).
Located a short distance outside of Manhattan, Blue Hill at Stone Barns finally received recognition from Michelin when the guidebook expanded to Westchester Country (it’s always been a tough table to score even without the lauded awards). Now you can place orders online and pick up one of the resourcED boxes—which features items such as broth, fermented veggies and local meats, eggs and bread, among other items. The team also recently made these boxes, which benefit Blue Hill staff, available at Blue Hill NY located in the Village.
There have been reports of delivery workers lining up outside of this Greenwich Village eatery known for its upscale take on red-sauce classics. Fans apparently have no issue paying nearly $70 for veal parmesan.
You might as well as add some precious caviar to all the wine available for delivery these days.
The Mexican fare isn’t your run-of-the-mill restaurant offering tacos and guacamole on the side. Check Claro’s IG account to find the latest dishes—like duck enmoladas—available for takeout and delivery.
The chef-owners of Lower East Side hot spots Contra and Wildair—Jeremiah Stone and Fabián von Hauske Valtierra—have launched Contrair to offer a mix of family-meal hits, dishes they've served at previous events and favorites from their two restaurants. On Caviar, you'll find orders like flakey biscuits served with umeboshi butter ($8 for two) and the lamb birria ($16) in a bowl of chickpeas, red cabbage and white rice—all of which you can complement with wine and even large-format cocktails.
Korean barbecue at home isn’t quite the same as if you were dining at this trendy Flatiron restaurant that fuses the popular communal meal with the American steakhouse. But you will get quality cuts of beef and find side dishes that are just as appetizing.
This beloved natural wine bar has a limited takeout menu for pickup. Whether it’s a Caesar salad or roasted chicken, you can order daily specials only and also grab wine and batch cocktails to-go.

Chef Hiroki Odo only serves 14 diners at a time in his speakeasy kaiseki restaurant Odo. But now he’s debuted a more casual delivery option with a six-piece nigiri sushi roll set ($18) with more options to come. For more Japanese-inspired dishes, Odo’s menu at Hall—located in the front part of the space that also houses the hidden tasting-menu restaurant—offers a Wagyu burger, panko fried chicken burger and a veggie burger to go.

Starting March 31, this sushi temple will offer sushi as well as alcohol to go for the first time. The chirashi ($100) is presented as beautifully as you'd find in the restaurant with a variety of fresh fish on rice. An item that was once a secret off-menu is also available: the Futomaki ($70) features sea eel, tiger prawn, egg omelet, pickled burdock root and more. Call 212-390-0925 to place an order between 10am-4pm Tuesday-Saturday with pickup between 2-6pm (they're closed Sunday and Monday).
