As the coronavirus pandemic continues to intensify and cities across the country hunker down, Many New York City restaurants and bars have gone dark. But temporary changes in New York’s liquor laws gave restaurants and bars the go-ahead to sell alcohol as part of their takeout and delivery menus, as long as they sell food with the orders and delivery personnel have the establishment’s liquor license on hand.
Here are some of the places selling cocktails for delivery. Remember to tip well, and if possible, call the restaurant or bar before using a delivery platform such as Seamless, which comes with hefty fees for consumers and restaurants.
