Don't know if it's been mentioned here or not, but Anoosh is publishing a cookbook through his charitable foundation, which is available for preorder:

I like Noosh Nosh's approach for carryout, it seems to be tailored towards minimizing staffing and inventory needs by limiting ordering and pickup hours as well as limiting the menu.

Oishii Sushi - I am a member of a FB group that posted the owner lives in their neighborhood and that they are struggling during these times...I hit them up for a carry out Thursday night...just as good as being there. We can't let this one go under...best in town IMHO.

Here's a crowd-sourcing effort to which restaurants in Louisville (and many other cities) can add their contact and takeout/delivery information:

I'm not going to name names, but I'm seeing and hearing that a lot of restaurants seem to be doing the take-out thing wrong. People placing orders in person and not calling ahead plus kitchens running behind, causing people to congregate inside and wait for their orders. I understand the difficult situation our beloved restaurants are in, but I think curbside and delivery only are probably the safest options given that backups will sometimes occur.

I'm reading that, in other cities, many restaurants are giving up on the take-out idea due to health risks to their customers and their employees.

It's a tough balance, TP. I know restaurants want to stay open for takeout for many strong reasons: Survival and service and jobs for at least some of their staff. But I know that if has to be sacrificed for the public good in this pandemic, that's what we'll have to do. ;(

Absolutely understand the need to keep folks employed. Surely wasn’t advocating otherwise, just “reporting.”

It might be good to get some wontons in the coming days.

Re: Who's doing takeout, curbside, or delivery? Spread the w

I admit I haven't read through this thread to see if this was already addressed. Apologies if it has been.

Here in Colorado Springs, in addition to carry-out/delivery, many restaurants are selling their raw products. Like steaks, chicken, ground beef. Many of the bakeries are selling flour, sugar, and eggs because they're hard to find in the stores now. So perhaps another way restaurants can make money is doing that? One restaurant is offering a home essentials package for $40:
3 lbs chicken breasts
15 eggs
1 gallon whole milk
1 loaf bread
1 lb butter
2 lb uncooked rice
2 lb onions
2 lb red potatoes
2 lb carrots
3 rolls toilet paper

I've also seen in the past week that several restaurants are selling 'family meals' that they've created, that aren't regular menu items.

A main dish, couple of sides, salad, bread...enough to feed a family of four for a set price. Honestly, I'd rather order something like that than spend a fortune with everyone getting different menu items or ordering from various places to appease everyone.

Catering places are releasing a week's worth of family meal menus and you just need to order a day in advance so they know how much to make.

Restaurants here are now allowed to offer alcoholic to-go drinks. As long as there is not a straw in the cup and you order food with it then you can take it to go. I've been delivering margaritas with meals from several Mexican spots.

Everyone is trying to help by posting what deals and specials they find on FB groups and NextDoor.

Again, I'm not in Louisville anymore, so don't know how restaurants there are handling things and maybe they're already doing things like this. But just some ideas....good luck, all!

Thanks, Alanna! A couple of places here are doing that - I think I saw The Table offering cut-rate food to out-of-work folks, consistent with its mission. I think at this point a lot of folks are trying to get by with curbside and delivery, but that could change.
