Canseco’s Market at Oak & S. Carrollton (via Facebook)

Uptown is blessed with many excellent restaurants. The sudden closure of their dining rooms is necessary for public health but will be hard on the talented and hard-working staff of these establishments.

Luckily, we don’t have to deprive ourselves of the food we’ve grown to love and depend on during our confinement. Many of our local restaurants are offering to-go and delivery options with precautions for social distancing.

Below is a list of Uptown eateries and other businesses with information on which are delivering, which are offering take-out and which have decided to close for a while — plus information to help you treat yourself while giving your neighborhood restaurants a needed boost. Most of the information was culled the restaurant websites and Facebook pages. We’ll be updating it regularly, but be warned it’s still subject to change. If your favorite restaurant is missing, let us know in the comments section. [Last update: March 24]

And don’t forget — tip as generously as you can.

A RESOURCE FOR RESTAURANTS

Open4Bizla.com is a new menu platform that let’s customers find and order from open restaurants. It was launched Thursday (March 19) with more than 100 restaurants.

Open4Bizla.com utilizes Zapp.Guru, a menu platform that allows restaurants to easily update their menus. Louisiana restaurants can sign up for the free service by emailing hello@zapp.guru.

The site was developed pro-bono by the Osterfeld Agency and Ellie Rand Public Relations, two
Louisiana-based marketing firms, in partnership with the Louisiana Restaurant Association. Zapp.Guru is currently waiving its fee, and restaurants do not need to be LRA members to sign up.

“We encourage all restaurants in Louisiana to take advantage of this free resource in these unprecedented times,” said Stan Harris, LRA President and CEO in a press release. “We also hope customers will use the site to order from their favorite restaurants and even find new gems in their towns and neighborhoods.”
