A list of restaurants which are open for takeout on the peninsula, because I’m not driving 20 minutes.

Left Bank, Menlo Park - till 7:30pm, moderate menu
Oren’s - restricted menu?
Rangoon Ruby, PA - 40 minute wait when called, but at least open

I’m still looking for a place that’ll do cocktails - togo and delivery - mostly because it’s a novelty.

Kemuri is on my list of good bar places that might do it - any leads?

Kemuri will only serve their cocktails if they can get their bartender to come in. We ordered from them on Sunday and ask if they we could pick up some cocktails to go but their bartender did not come in that day. You might wanna call first to check.

Got an email from Flea St Cafe that they are doing take out cocktails.

Also the Six Fifty is doing a running list of opens on the peninsula and now has a map.

Just to clarify, the Six Fifty’s map is now where they’re saying the most up to date information from them will be.

For Palo Alto, I see quite a few errors. Rooh PA is not open. Cafe Zoe is not open. I don’ t think Tamerine is open ( I believe they’ve kept Tam Tam, with its simpler menu open ). Perhaps the map isn’t being kept up as much as they hope.

Hi Brian – We are updating that list regularly. Thank you for catching Cafe Zoe - I’ll remove that.

Tamarine is delivering out of Tam Tam and Rooh started offering takeout/delivery in late March.

If you see any places we’re missing, please feel free to email me:



I don’t know how I missed Rooh, I had been checking them every few days, as I really like their food and would like to support them. Some restaurants have been slow to update their websites about how to get their food - but maybe I just missed it.

Tamerine is an interesting middle ground, delivering “out of” the sister restaurant. I think I missed this because my info was driving past the restaurant and seeing them physically closed, but I see that Door Dash really does have most of Tamerine’s menu available, so I have to agree they are open too. And now their website correctly points people to doordash.

Do you have any advice for us trying to support our favorites? I tend to “go around” doordash by calling direct.

Thanks for the updates, I’ll let you know if I spot any other slippage between what I observe on the street and the list.
