Here are 10 excellent East Boston restaurants that are offering delivery during the ongoing pandemic. Stay tuned for curated picks for other neighborhoods in and around Boston.

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.

While Australian meat pie joint KO Catering and Pies owes some of its charm to its unique location with a view, tucked inside the Boston Harbor Shipyard in East Boston, it’s still a top-notch dining choice even if you can’t eat onsite right now. Dream of meat pies and beer on the patio, but for now, get delivery — lunch and dinner are available Wednesday through Sunday. Hint: Add a few frozen meat pies and sausage rolls to your order for later.
