Fifteen Toronto restaurants offering fancy food for takeout and delivery

 

 

While it could be some time before Torontonians can again enjoy a meal in their favourite restaurant’s dining room, a number of businesses are offering takeout and delivery. And some—because they were never a takeout restaurant to begin with—are serving up food that’s neither fast nor casual. Whether it’s for a social-distancing special occasion or just because, here are some gussied-up options to enjoy at home. (And now that you can tack on a bottle of wine with your food order, it’s almost like having the full restaurant experience.)
