You're Gonna Eat, So Eat Local

At the end of a long day of tele-working, maybe home-schooling, refereeing kids and/or pets and trying to clean up the mess, the last thing you want to do is cook. While District restaurants have been closed for dine-in since March 16, you can still order food for delivery or pick-up –now including adult beverages. It’s a great way to support the neighbors that work at and own these community businesses!

Here’s a list of nearby restaurants offering delivery or take-out service, so you can support local while you eat.

A note: where possible, it’s nice to order food and beverages directly from the restaurant, either via telephone or through the website. Platforms such a UberEats, Doordash, Caviar and Postmates offer pick-up and delivery from restaurants that might otherwise be unable to provide it in-house, making business possible through the COVID-19 shutdown. They also charge a commission, separately negotiated for each restaurant, that can be anywhere from 15 to 30 percent and as high as 40 percent on each order. (While Uber Eats has waived the delivery fee for more than 100,000 local restaurants, that’s for the customer, not the restaurant. Caviar and Doordash recently merged and have waived commission on pick-up orders, and reduced commission for some independent restaurants).

Restaurants already operate on a low profit margin, usually around 6 percent. Ordering by phone or through the restaurant website can help reduce those fees by allowing the restaurant to take the order themselves and only pay a platform for delivery. Websites may also direct you to platforms with whom restaurants have the best arrangements.

If your favorite restaurant isn’t open, you can still support them with a gift card. Visit their website or select from the constantly updatign list of links compiled by DC Tech People (dctechpeople.com) at supportdc.com

Times are moving fast, so this information is subject to change. Check with your restaurant directly about hours, and to see how they’re doing!
