Malls. Barbershops. Arcades. Movie theaters. Nightclubs. The list goes on and on.
Countless Broward institutions have temporarily (and, it’s hoped, not permanently) shuttered as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
And many restaurants have gone the same route.
But in these incredibly challenging times, there are establishments with the resources and willpower to remain open and adapt by offering specials as well as takeout and delivery to keep tummies happy.
These restaurants and their employees are among the heroes providing not only sustenance but also hints of normalcy in the heart of this crisis.
Here, in alphabetical order, are locally owned restaurants offering pickup and delivery.
Please note: Though these restaurants are open as of publication, it's a good idea to call ahead to confirm because the situation remains in flux. Delivery areas and charges may vary, so check with delivery services or the restaurants.
