As physical isolation continues across the city, many are itching to get back to their regular routines of restaurant and bar-hopping.
Now, that is not happening, but something else is: restaurants are finding ways to ensure you can still enjoy your rituals, just differently.
A new restaurant program called isolish takes the experience of sitting down for a prix fixe meal and a drink at a nice eatery, and packages it up for home delivery.
Akin to the experience of Summer-or-Winterlicious, the program supports the city’s rich culinary and cultural scene, while continuing to support the practice of physical distancing.
“The isolish program was inspired by other restaurant programs in the city where chefs create multi-course meals to showcase their culinary chops. This type of food experience has all but disappeared during the current crisis,” explains a release.

Developed by a group of local, creative businesses including Makers, Linda & Linda, Ambassador AI, and Array of Stars, the program takes the takeout experience to new heights. It’s elevated home dining, if you will.
Spots including Miku, The Drake, Il Covo, Barque, BB’s Diner, Lake Inez, and more have already joined the initiative.
Tickets are officially live online, with $5 from every meal purchased supporting Daily Bread Food Bank’s COVID-19 response efforts.
Tickets for meals range from $60 to $100, and include optional wine pairings. Customers also have the opportunity to purchase a specialty cocktail kit featuring three different cocktails created exclusively for the program.
Tickets can be purchased online up to 48 hours in advance of each restaurant’s delivery date:
Miku – Thursday, April 30
The Drake – Friday, May 1
Il Covo – Saturday, May 2
Barque – Thursday, May 7
BB’s Diner – Friday, May 8
Lake Inez – Saturday, May 9
