Here are 12 excellent downtown Boston restaurants that are offering delivery during the ongoing pandemic. Stay tuned for curated picks for other neighborhoods in and around Boston. (This particular map includes the Financial District, Theater District, Downtown Crossing, and other parts of downtown Boston, but the Chinatown/Leather District area has its own map.)

Note: To best support restaurants — and they really need support right now — order directly from a restaurant’s own website or phone number, if possible, rather than via third-party apps, which typically take a large cut of each order.

For a broader look at delivery options in Boston and beyond — and takeout options, too — check this list. For all Eater Boston coverage about COVID-19, check here.
