Spago
> Location: Beverly Hills

The flagship of Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant empire, considered one of the world’s most influential restaurants of the past 30 years, Spago is offering some of its classic dishes for both curbside pickup and delivery. The price is $59 for a three-course meal. Among the choices are braised short rib ravioli or petite smoked salmon pizza as an appetizer, and almond-crusted Ora king salmon or 38-day-dry-aged prime New York Steak as a main course, with Della’s Chocolate Truffle Cake for dessert.

Sushi Ginza Onodera
> Location: Los Angeles

This is hardly your standard takeout and delivery sushi parlor. A seasonal omakase (chef’s choice) menu costs $300 per person, with course extensions for $100 and $150. While this Michelin two-star is closed for regular business, however, it’s making a limited menu available for pickup. This includes a futomaki (maki sushi roll) assortment at $80, an appetizer combination (spear squid, monkfish liver, and abalone) at $85, and a mixed sushi chirashi bowl at $150.

Vespertine
> Location: Los Angeles

Holding two stars from the Guide Michelin and named the single best restaurant in Los Angeles by the late Pulitzer-Prize-winning restaurant critic Jonathan Gold in 2017, Vespertine describes itself as “a gastronomical experience seeking to disrupt the course of the modern restaurant.” In ordinary times, the multi-course tasting menu runs $295 per diner. The restaurant, however, is currently serving family-style dinners for pickup or delivery, comprised of wagyu beef brisket, crispy-skin chicken thighs, salads of organic lettuces and greens and roasted black carrots, delicata squash gratin, Anson Mills farro risotto, and chocolate chip cookies and a brownie — all for $49 per person.
