Rent the Runway x Hampton Jitney
395 County Line Rd., Southampton
The notion that you need to buy a new look for every wedding/party/opening/dinner/etc. is outdated and a tad ridiculous. Rent the Runway fills that ahhh-what-do-I-wear void without breaking the bank. This summer, the storied clothing rental company is teaming up with Hampton Jitney to make returning borrowed gowns and accessories a breeze. So rather than carrying excess luggage to and from the East End simply drop your Rent the Runway garments off at the "drop-off box" in the Jutney terminal or hand over your pieces to the always-lovely Jitney driver, and forget about it.

Harvest & Revel
Citywide
Harvest & Revel is that dreamy catering company that, in addition to food, handles all the event details—beverages, bar packages, staff, flowers, and photographers—that make party planning sort of maddening. Now back to the food. Founder Sara Elise and her staff don’t abide by the set menus typical in the catering space. Instead, you collaborate with them to design a menu that embraces the season and suits the particulars of the event you’re hosting. Every bite prepared by the Harvest & Revel team is sustainable, locally grown (when possible), health-forward, and exquisitely presented.
Contrair
[email protected]
Chef restaurateurs Fabian Von Hauske Valtierra and Jeremiah Stone are old hands at Michelin-starred food that’s actually fun to eat. Both Contra and Wildair are shut, but a new, unexpected mashup of the two, Contrair, is open for delivery through Caviar. Rather than merely adapting current menus for delivery, Valtierra and Stone have come up with an entirely new concept that fuses both restaurants’ dedication to seasonality, shareable plates, and New American vibes. Divided into hot, cold, and sweet, the dishes are just the kind of food you crave during—well—a pandemic. Warm, comforting congee; lamb-stuffed cabbage; BBQ chicken; and homey rice pudding. A few dishes off this new menu plus a bottle of something natural and funky-tasting sounds like an ideal night at home in front of Tiger King to us. (Oh, and the duo and their team are delivering weekly lunches and drinks to New York City hospital workers in collaboration with our favorite dumpling spot, Mimi Cheng’s.)
Peoples Wine
115 Delancey St., Lower East Side
COVID-19 update: Open for pickup and delivery. Peoples Wine was one of the 2019 openings we were most psyched about, mainly because we knew, based on our always-stellar experiences at sibling establishments Contra and Wildair, that it would be fantastic. It was, and hopefully it will be again. Until then, the good folks behind the wine bar are now in the wine delivery business. Order online or email [email protected] with your preferences and budget for a sommelier-grade selection of small-batch biodynamic and organic wines from the world’s best producers. And, if you're hungry as well as thirsty, check out the founders' new restaurant mash-up delivery concept, Contrair, here.

Fulton Fish Market
[email protected]
COVID-19 update: Open for delivery. If ever there were a time to conquer the fear of cooking fish and re-create those buttery, sautéed scallops you go to restaurants for at home, it’s now. Fulton Fish Market is keeping our fridges and freezers stocked with littleneck clams, smoked trout, wild salmon, and delicacies like uni and oysters. Order here via the website, and within two days, a package of very recently caught fish will be sitting on your doorstep, ready for the skillet.

Roberta’s
261 Moore St., Bushwick
COVID-19 update: Open for pickup, delivery, and outdoor dining. The combination of puffy, charred crust, and sweet-salty tomato sauce at Roberta’s in Bushwick is, to us, the perfect pizza. Along with those still-delicious pizzas, the restaurant is delivering make-your-own pasta kits, too, complete with detailed instructions. For those who like their pies piping-hot, check out Roberta’s thoughtful how-to-reheat illustrations on the site.

Union Square Greenmarket
W &, E 17th St., Union Square
COVID-19 update: Open Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. The farmers and various purveyors who make up New York’s beloved Union Square Greenmarket are taking great care in adapting to the current situation. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday the market’s meticulous website and app are updated with that day's sellers and relevant information. Several producers are offering preorder and pickup options plus some home delivery (click here for a comprehensive list and contact info). Support farmers and others who go to great lengths to produce quality food and place an order.

L’imprimerie
[email protected]
For the mornings when only a French baguette will do, there’s Bushwick staple L’imprimerie. The bakery is keeping up with bread and pastry orders, plus pantry items like sauerkraut, dried beans, coffee, granola, yogurt, and wine. L’imprimerie is giving free pizza assembly kits to essential workers (which means anyone keeping the city running—drivers, medics, restaurant workers, etc.), and you can buy them as well. And all those looking to master the art of sourdough should make a beeline for the bakery’s starter kits.
Katz’s Delicatessen
205 E Houston St., Lower East Side
COVID-19 update: Open for pickup, delivery, and nationwide shipping. Katz has dinner covered with its famous brisket, roast chicken or turkey, stuffed cabbage and creamy kugel, and other delicious, comforting dishes for delivery in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Those craving Katz’s never-too-salty matzo ball soup from further afield can order a full dinner package (including brisket) that serves up to four people for $125 with two days’ notice for nationwide shipping. Meanwhile, you can get the deli’s pastrami sandwiches and warming soups on all the usual delivery platforms (Seamless, Caviar, DoorDash) alongside some convenient fridge and freezer staples like sour pickles, hand-carved meats, and liters of broth.
