    I also liked the look off Daisies' kits, but according to their website, they are no longer doing take-away.

    Out of concern for the health and safety of our staff and patrons we are making the difficult decision to temporarily close our doors until we get the go ahead to reopen for service. The sense of community we have received from not only our Logan Square neighbors but the Chicago dining scene as a whole has been humbling to say the least. We thank everyone who has come out to support us in our transition to a takeout model During this break we are focusing on self care and coming back stronger and better than ever. In the meantime, please consider donating to the staffs go fund me. We look forward to seeing you all on the other side.

    I suspect we'll see a bunch of other places that are new to this model decide to switch up their offering or shut it down entirely depending on how things are going for them.

    Per an email, they're back up and running, with their dinner menu available for contactless carryout from 4-8pm Wednesday thru Saturday. Frustratingly and curiously, not a single link or a phone number is provided in the email. :roll:

    Hi- There is a Facebook group called Supporting Evanston Restaurants that somebody started to help out Evanston restaurants during the pandemic, and one of the restaurants that sounds interesting is Spoonfoolery, which is at 2301 W. Greenleaf in Evanston. It is a childrens cooking school which is owned by somebody from India. Because of the pandemic she can not have any cooking classes there, and so she has started offering takeout Indian fusion food. I think you order the food on Wednesdays, and then you pick it up on either Thursday or Friday. I think you get to pick the day. Here is the link to the menu.

    Gov. J.B. Pritzker on Wednesday announced he would allow bars and restaurants to open for outdoor seating on May 29 when the state is expected to enter its next phase for reopening businesses.

    Pritzker’s gradual reopening plan previously did not allow bars and restaurants to open to dine-in service until phase four, which regions of the state would not hit until late June. However, the governor announced he’s reconsidered that stance after consulting with individuals in the bar and restaurant industry and will allow those establishments to hold outdoor dining only in phase three, which all regions of the state are expected to meet next week.

    “We have to put public health first, and that means the safety of consumers and employees alike, but the epidemiologists now believe that summer offers us an opportunity,” Pritzker said. “Today, I’m announcing an additional option for bars and restaurants interested in resuming operations early, opening for outdoor seating when phase three begins likely for everyone just nine days from now.” ... story.html
