Flour Power offers inventive pasta kits.
| Barry Brecheisen/Eater Chicago

Ordering food from one of the many Chicago restaurants that are still open is the easiest way to enjoy a delicious meal at home. But for those who’d rather cook or have the freshest experience possible, meal kits are a great option. The following spots offer everything from DIY pizzas to Michelin-star-caliber dinners. In most cases, the only work diners need to do is assemble and reheat so even amateurs can get in on the action.

As of August 20, the city has mandated that everyone wear facial coverings while indoors. For updated information on coronavirus cases, please visit the city of Chicago’s COVID-19 dashboard. Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; the latest data about the delta variant indicates that it may pose a low-to-moderate risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
