These Melbourne Restaurants Are Offering Takeaway Options to Help You Eat Well at Home

Eateries across the city are reverting back to takeaway and delivery as metropolitan Melbourne enters a second lockdown.

As COVID-19 cases in Victoria have spiked once again, metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire have entered lockdown (again). This means, restaurants in the 32 local government areas must close to dine-in service and focus on takeaway and delivery. Luckily, this isn't their first rodeo, so many of them have been able to pivot (fast).

A result of this head-spinning feat is that bars, cafes and restaurants across the city are already offering takeaway food and delivery meals. So, you can put down that fifth can of tuna — or give up on your attempt at making sourdough — and pick up the phone, knowing you'll be doing a local business a solid while also getting to eating a tasty, fancy, succulent meal.

Here are all the restaurant-quality eats you can order takeaway or have delivered to your doorstep.

To find out exactly what you can and can't do during lockdown 2.0, head to the DHHS website.
