Ashok Selvam is the editor of Eater Chicago and a native Chicagoan armed with more than two decades of award-winning journalism. Now covering the world of restaurants and food, his nut graphs are super nutty.

Chicagoans are adapting to social distancing policies, and even Mayor Lori Lightfoot is having fun with her new Eye of Sauron-like role of enforcing the rules. The city’s restaurants are also getting their feet under them. Pizzerias and taquerias are accustomed to takeout and delivery. It’s a bigger change for white tablecloth restaurants like the ones that get the attention of Michelin inspectors.

The choice to keep open is a difficult one for restaurant owners who balance their family and staff’s health and financial concerns. None of Chicago’s 25 Michelin restaurants offered takeout or delivery options before the novel coronavirus outbreak. Now that the city is in the second week of the state’s stay-at-home order that allows for takeout and delivery (restaurants are able to operate as they’re considered essential), more restaurants have unveiled options. Currently, eight restaurants offer to-go or delivery in one form other the other. Affiliated restaurants from four others are still open. That number is subject to change as owners consider safety risks.

Check out the options below.
