Just a reminder that many Albany restaurants, ordered by the state to close their dining rooms, are trying to survive the corona panic by serving take-out meals.
On a ride around downtown an hour or so before sunset on Saturday, I got a look at several places offering take-out service. Not just downtown, but restaurants everywhere are offering the same and hope customers take them up on it.
A downtown sampling:
So if you have a favorite place for meals out and want it still to be there when the panic is over, better look them up online and call them up to order something, if not today then as soon and as often as you can afford.
As for downtown, food establishments are not the only ones offering curbside service.
Lise Grato, the executive director of the Albany Downtown Assocation, told me Saturday the association had installed more than a dozen parking spaces designated as “Curbside Pickup Parking Only.” The spaces, she said, are dispersed to provide “easy access to food and merchandise from over 20 businesses.”
But back to restaurants. Better call up your favorite and order something to go. (hh)
