Many Colorado restaurants offer finish-at-home to-go meals and meal kit options that allow customers to support businesses — as of October 27, Denver orders mandate that current restaurant capacity is reduced from 50% to 25%. We’ve created a running list of restaurants with creative, diverse, even fancy meals (with beverages to complete) to enjoy at home on any occasion.
These meals and kits are designed for cooking at home, reheating from frozen and assembly, therefore not all restaurants currently serving to-go are listed. Many of these options can be ordered online as directed by each restaurant’s websites.
This list will be updated often to be current and more comprehensive as information becomes available.
*Editor’s note: As things shift with the current situation, make sure to check each restaurant’s websites or social media channels for restaurant-specific updates.
