During this time of fear and uncertainty, we give thanks to our local neighbors and businesses who continue to perform random acts of kindness as well as acts of heroism, like our incredible first responders and health care providers.
Many restaurants, including a host of locally owned ones, have also stepped forward to provide sustenance in the form of meals either delivered or offered via carryout or curbside service—in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
Among these is Benvenuti’s Ristorante, which offers old-world Italian with a new world twist.
Benvenuti’s is offering pick-up family-style meals that serve up to four people. They include an appetizer, salad and entrée, plus bread. Entrée selections include spaghetti with marinara and meatballs, chicken picatta with garlic whipped potatoes and broccolini, and lasagna.
Also offered is the “Benvenuti’s Grill Kit,” which can be ordered cooked or uncooked, which includes four steak filets, Caesar salad, Italian mac & cheese and grilled veggies. Also available for purchase are family-style sides, an antipasto platter and, yes, dessert: chocolate cake for two ($10). Did we mention that wine and beer also is available?
To view the entire curbside menu and for pricing, visit http://www.benvenutisristorante.com/curbside. During this difficult time, gratuities are especially appreciated.
Orders are taken from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Order by 2 p.m. for same-day pick-up. Delivery also is available upon request. Orders may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 310.5271.
How to ‘Pay It Forward’
Have you been the recipient of someone’s kindness during this unfolding pandemic? Or perhaps you are just interested in helping someone in need?
