The Flourishing of Home Delivery Businesses

With the closure of regular restaurants because of COVID there is a flourishing of Take-Out, Home-Delivery and the like. What was once a novelty and an extravagant way of life for most Italians, now it is a de facto thing!

The choices are plentiful! 

Pizza, which it was always a Take-Out thing, but now one can see bikers and/or scooters with their square bags on the back running thru town to deliver.

But the real novelty are the other restaurants. The traditional restaurants updated themeselves real quickly and have a nice presence on Instagram with mouthwatering offerings and menus to chose from, while the international restaurant are really doing business!

Whithin a half hour from placing your order one can get at home sushi, drinks, and all the trims. No tip needed either. 

International Offerings

The choices are plentiful:

Asian Fusion, China Town, TakeShi, Asmara, India Matha, Old Wild West (that’s burghers!), Mezza Libra (That means Half a Pound!), Wiener Haus, Mille e una Notte (A tousand and One, Middle East cuisine), Que Quilombo! Argentinian Empanadas, Roadhouse—Steakhouse & Grill; believe it or not there is also the Brisket! 

Add to that all the pastries and gelaterie, plus the fresh pasta makers that deliver freshly made tortellini and tagliatelle.

What else can we ask for, … except an end to this COVID thing.

I lived the most part of my life in Washington DC, now in Italy getting to know again my country. Plenty of surprises, for good and bad, and lots of nostalgia for DC.
