Here’s an update on more local spots reopening this week. Many are finding creative ways to adapt, re-inventing themselves as grocers and offering take home meal kits and cocktails, prepped and ready to cook (or mix) yourself, as a lot of specialty prepared food just doesn’t travel well.

Bacaro is offering a Mother’s Day “pop-up” from noon – 5pm, on Saturday, “grab all your Mother’s Day essentials: handpicked bouquets, organic /regional wines, and even beautiful masks. Everything is reasonably priced with bottles being 25$ as well as the bouquet (perfect as a little bundle). We’re also featuring our olive oil we use in-house for dipping which is perfect for cooking, cordials and digestifs unique to Italy, and many other regional exclusives. Stop by for mom or even for yourself, we won’t tell.”

Balvanera, the Argentinian restaurant, is back open with a new takeout and delivery menu. They write: ‘Weekend agenda: Empanadas in pajamas, dulce de leche by the jar, a juicy ribeye with an even juicer Malbec.
