New Website Launches to Roundup Columbus Restaurant Options
Central Ohio restaurants and bars may be closed to dine-in patrons, but many local establishments are still open to feed quarantining Columbusites.
While the situation continues to change rapidly, a new website is aggregating the details of local restaurants’ offerings during the pandemic.
SupportColumbusEats.com offers a list of restaurants organized by neighborhood, and details on their current operating status, hours of operation, delivery options and services, pickup options, menus and even where and how to buy gift cards.
The website just launched on Monday, but is already populated with 175 plus dining establishments. Organizers behind the website are adding information, and businesses can also self-submit their details to the list. As information changes, organizers will continue to update the website.
Chelsea Clements says the website has already seen a big increase in traffic since its launch. Six cities across the country have also reached out for details on how to duplicate efforts locally.
As many business explore carry-out and delivery for the first time, and the situation in response to the Coronavirus continues to evolve, it is always a good idea to check in directly with a dining establishment through its website and social media pages before trying to order.
For those concerned about continuing to order take-out, according to the FDA, “Currently there is no evidence of food or food packaging being associated with transmission of COVID-19.” Eater.com also has an extensive guide to ordering delivery and takeout during the pandemic, including tips like immediately throwing away all packaging, refraining from sharing drinks and utensils, and more.
