Restaurant box, continuing saga of Covid adaptations

DD bought a food box from one of her favorite (closed and waiting to reopen) restaurants. She initially ordered to support them, but she thinks she got a great deal. Hereís just some of what she got for $135 (sheís single and thinking itís at least 10 meals). She said the recipes arenít very clear, but she doesnít care because she knows how to cook and the food is fabulous (eg, those pork chops were huge and tender).

That is a very creative idea on the part of the restaurant to create those boxes. The price seems very reasonable given the quality of the food.

Yes, some Napa restaurants and wineries were offering cooking boxes with live video with chefs. Then the videos were available for later.

Since they are still open up there they have backed down on the virtual cooking experiences. Many wineries are still doing the virtual tastings. It just seems a bit much of a waste to open those bottles for one night and few people.

I predict the wineries will start bottling more 375 ml bottles for virtual tastings.

I've heard of things like that with restaurants. I think that's a great idea! I love the idea of virtual cooking experiences as well.

That looks great! I think some restaurants have done a great job of thinking outside the box (no pun intended) to keep their businesses thriving. Some added family meals to their take-out menus which was a great option and our favorite local restaurant was selling meat even during the time it was really hard to find. Most was pre-marinated, a good price, and it was all delicious! My favorite was the restaurant that was managed by my DIL's brother. They offered make your own burgers or chicken meals for 4 that also came with a dozen eggs, a roll of paper towels, and the most important item (at least in the beginning) - a roll of toilet paper.

That’s s great deal! Many of our restaurants are going the same. We just recently opened to patios but not indoor. So restaurants are still suffering. Many have adapted by becoming mini grocers for online shopping. I think it’s a great idea.

Some restaurants here started selling bags of staples like flour etc because their supply wasnít interrupted the way there were shortages in stores.

That is such a great deal! A friend of mine is getting a fresh produce box delivered every other week from a local farm stand. They never know what they will get, but enjoy trying new things. We donít have anything around here that does tható that I know of.

Kudos to your DD for finding and helping her favorite restaurant. The food looks good and will give her a chance to cook up her favorite meals.
