Rao’s in New York City is one of the toughest reservations to get in the country. If you don’t own a table at the East Harlem eatery — or win it in a charity auction — you can forget about it. But now that the city is shut down to dine-in customers over coronavirus concerns, you have the chance to get your mitts on once-exclusive Italian food. How? Rao's is offering takeout.

The Best Italian Restaurant in Every State

So, what’s on the menu? Enough penne marinara, meatballs, lemon chicken and salad to feed two people. The cash-only meal costs $80, which includes tax and 15% gratuity.

To order, send a private message with your phone number to @raos_eastharlem on Instagram. You’ll be added to a waitlist and, if you are chosen, someone will text you to discuss a pickup time.

Not everyone will be able to get a taste of Rao’s, but the restaurant’s Instagram page says the staff is trying to accommodate as many customers as possible.

Rao’s is currently offering pickup only, but tons of other restaurants are available to bring food straight to your door so you can social distance like a pro. And we’ve got the 411 on what delivery food America is ordering during the coronavirus pandemic.

Where To Order Luxe Takeout In New York City - Forbes

Going out for dinner is not in the foreseeable future for New Yorkers, but the city's top restaurants are shifting to accommodate the lockdown. Critically acclaimed, Michelin-starred, newcomers and mainstays alike are offering top-notch takeout for a splurge-worthy meal. Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or just need an elevated pick-me-up, order takeout from one of these often-packed, nearly impossible to get into restaurants that won't stop feeding New Yorkers, even in a pandemic. Tip well, be kind and note that additional donations or staff support funds are easy to contribute to via various delivery platforms when you place an order. Home, appetit!

Marea's fusilli with bone marrow and red wine braised octopus

Chef Michael White's esteemed Italian spot right off Central Park is often packed, but pasta enthusiasts can now get their Michelin-worthy dinners to go. Marea staples like red wine braised octopus and bone marrow fusilli are on the menu, along with beer, wine (including specialty reserve wines) and a classic Negroni.  A new dish r igatoni with seppia, shrimp, peas and Pecorino fonduta was recently added to the menu, and on Sundays, a special supper for two includes veal Milanese with arugula, tomato and onion salad with balsamic garganelli alla vodka and tiramisu for $95. Order from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. daily, via   Marea's website or through the Caviar app. Additionally, 25% off all gift card purchases for Altamarea Group (Marea, Ai Fiori, Vaucluse, Osteria Morini and Nicoletta) will be donated to Citymeals, which ensures homebound elderly neighbors receive nourishing meals.

Bohemian's eel and Foie Gras sushi set, $19 for two pieces, is a takeout special

Before April 2020, this downtown Manhattan restaurant was accessible only by referral, and even then, you'd need to luck out to earn a highly sought after reservation. Now, the Japanese-fusion spot is delivering its ambitious menu via Caviar. Interactive dishes, like farmer's fresh vegetable fondue, will keep long-time quarantiners entertained, and the wagyu beef sushi is worth waiting for. Craft cocktails, sake tasting sets and specialty sake are also all available for delivery.

Lobster noodles at Wayan in SoHo

One of the hottest seats in SoHo since it opened in 2019, Wayan is now serving its famed lobster noodles with Thai basil and crispy baby back ribs to go via Caviar. To best re-create the Indonesian-French restaurant experience, start with an assortment of small plates, like vegetable spring rolls with green chili emulsion and avocado gado gado with soft boiled quail eggs. The limited online menu still includes yellow chicken with lemongrass and coconut and the must-order side of nasi goreng. Add a few homemade chocolate chip cookies for dessert, a large format cocktail and a few house-made sodas to mix up your own drinks at home.

Snag a coveted seat at your own kitchen counter and indulge in a four-course, (adapted for takeout) Three Michelin-Starred dining experience by Chef César Ramirez of Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare. Each course includes multiple seasonal options, like fresh Hudson Valley Burrata with oven dried tomato, roasted peppers, basil, navel and blood oranges chicken soup with truffles and foie gras and Australian baby lamb with puy lentils. Orders must be placed at least 48 hours in advance.

Pork and shrimp with gochujang sauce, sichuan pepper breadcrumbs and cilantro from Atoboy
