The New Way of Dining Out

by Mar 20, 2020Food & Drink, North Brunswick, Restaurants

I love to cook, so social distancing and making meals in my own kitchen is not a major deal for me.

But I also recognize that the restaurant industry was one of the first impacted by the new social-distancing policies. Some restaurants have closed altogether, and others have stayed open but drastically adjusted their business models to offer curbside takeout, family meal plans and carry-out incentives. Many of Leland’s restaurants are locally owned and operated with staff members who rely on the business’ success for their income. So, I’m making it a point to enjoy our local restaurants, discovering new dishes and gaining kitchen inspiration along the way. Let’s all commit to ordering several meals out this week, whether we have it delivered or pick it up and take it home.
We reached out to restaurants in the Leland area to see what they’re offering during this unusual time. Here’s what they responded. Please join us in supporting our local restaurant community.
