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. Order take out or delivery (or a special Argentinian Box with groceries and fixings to cook for yourself) by calling 212.533.3348 or via our website.”
