With restaurant dining rooms shuttered throughout the region because of the coronavirus pandemic, some restaurants are continuing with takeout, curbside pick-up, delivery or a combination thereof. A list of some options follows.
You can now submit your own listings here. These will not automatically appear on the list below. Please be patient as we figure all of this out.
Please continue to send updates via email (email@example.com) or direct message on Twitter or Instagram (@ianfroeb on both platforms).
If you have a few minutes, please consider reading my reflections on what these past two weeks have felt like, from business as usual to this great, scary unknown.
Curbside pick-up, delivery and other variations
The situation is changing frequently. Please contact the restaurant directly for the most up-to-date-information. Also, delivery may refer to a third-party app (e.g., Postmates) rather than an in-house service.

Stay tuned for updates, insights and more as St. Louis restaurants navigate an unprecedented situation. Email Ian Froeb at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a restaurant owner who needs to add or adjust your listing.
8:53 p.m., March 19 — Last night
Tonight is the final evening for dine-in service at area restaurants — those that haven't shuttered their dining rooms already. This latest update includes even more takeout/curbside/delivery options. These include the acclaimed Stone Soup Cottage, which — believe it or not — is introducing a delivery service with a 3-course dinner for two, with a bottle of wine, linens, candles and stemware.
9:50 a.m., March 19 — More updates and food trucks' concerns
Good morning. I have added a slew of new takeout, curbside pick-up and delivery options since yesterday's final update. Also, this morning, I spoke with some food-truck operators about the unique challenges they are facing during the pandemic.
9:00 p.m., March 18 — Multiple new options
The list is updated with several options for takeout, curbside pick-up and delivery. Stay with us as St. Louis restaurants enter this uncertain new time. Please send along additional options or changes.
2:30 p.m., March 18 — Warren County restaurant changes
The list of takeout, curbside and delivery options has been updated with numerous restaurants.
Also at this hour:
• Warren County has "encouraged" restaurants, bars and other places of on-premises consumption to offer service through delivery, walk-up, window, drive-thru or drive-up with up to 10 members of the public inside at a time so long as they observe 6-feet social distancing.
• My colleague Kevin Johnson has details on Good for the Grove, an industry fundraiser for service workers in the Grove district affected by the restaurant closures.
8:45 a.m., March 18 — Morning updates include a permanent closure
The first update of the morning includes both restaurants introducing takeout and/or curbside pick-up options (Bulrush and Balkan Treat Box among them).
Also, Bobo Noodle House in the Skinker-DeBaliviere neighborhood has announced its permanent closure. In a Facebook post announcing the closure, owner Kary Lockwood wrote in part:
"As you know, Washington University, along with many other schools, has closed its campus to students and all visitors for the next few months in response to the coronavirus pandemic. For Bobo this has meant the near-total loss of our student diners and it has hit us very hard and very quickly.
"Additionally, in the past few months much of our neighborhood parking has been blocked by ongoing university construction projects. That has greatly impacted our customers who drive to dine with us and as a result has reduced our customer pool primarily to students who can walk to us from campus.
"We are a typical small American business without the extra resources to withstand such sudden, drastic losses to our daily business.
"That said, we have been honored to serve our valued customers for the past 5 years, since I first purchased Bobo."
8:40 p.m., March 17 — Updates and a collage
I've made numerous updates to the lists of restaurants offering delivery and curbside pick-up and of those that have closed, the latter including Blueberry Hill and the downtown trio of the Wheelhouse, the Midwestern Meat & Drink and Start Bar.
For the past couple of days, I have been taking screenshots on my phone of restaurants' social-media posts announcing their changes. Here is a collage of roughly 48 hours worth of those screenshots.
4:10 p.m., March 17 — Going forward
I will continue to update the list below in light of this afternoon's announcement. Please be patient, as many restaurants' circumstances will be changing in very short order.
2:25 p.m., March 17 — Catching up...and catching our breath
The list of restaurants closing or adjusting formats is now caught up with my Twitter feed as of now. Among the latest updates, Paul and Wendy Hamilton have closed Eleven Eleven Mississippi and Vin de Set until further notice, while PW Pizza and Hamilton's Urban Steakhouse have shifted to curbside pick-up and delivery.
The list below is by no means complete. I am still chasing tips, social-media posts, emails, etc. However, in advance of a 3 p.m. news conference from area elected officials that might offer some clarity to the dining situation, I am going to pause on updates for a brief time.
Thanks for your patience.
10:38 a.m., March 17 — Crown Candy Kitchen closes dining room
Old North St. Louis icon Crown Candy Kitchen will close its dining room at 4 p.m. today. Food, including ice cream and chocolate, will be available for curbside pick-up. You can also order chocolates via the restaurant's website.
In social-media posts announcing the decision, owner Andy Karandzieff wrote, "We will be doing our best to keep as many of our wonderful employees working as much as possible. Our employees are family to us."
9:18 a.m., March 17 — More closures and changes overnight
The list of closures and restaurants that have added or changed to some combination of takeout, delivery and curbside pick-up has been updated.
Newly announced prominent closures include Beast Butcher & Block, which has ended restaurant operations (though not its retail butcher shop) and Ellendale fixture the Piccadilly at Manhattan.
8:15 p.m., March 16 — Closures include Carl's Drive In, Union Loafers
The number of voluntary closures continues to grow this evening, among them burger institution Carl's Drive-In and acclaimed lunch spot, pizzeria and bread bakery Union Loafers.
As of this writing, there are no new restrictions on restaurant operations in St. Louis City or St. Louis County, and the list below of restaurants adding takeout, curbside pick-up and delivery options also continues to grow.
5:13 p.m., March 16 — HopCat closes St. Louis location permanently
The restaurant and beer bar HopCat has announced the permanent closure of its St. Louis location in the Delmar Loop.
The post on HopCat's website reads in part, "Trust us that it was an incredibly difficult decision to make and one only done after every other possible option was exhausted."
3:50 p.m., March 16 — Voluntary closures continue
Ted Kilgore has closed his flagship cocktail bar and restaurant Planter's House and its spinoff Small Change until further notice. Ally Nisbit announced he is closing the Shaved Duck and the Scottish Arms, though per his Facebook announcement he is developing plans for curbside pick-up and delivery.
Other closures include Felix's Pizza Pub and its brand-new spinoff Sunny's Cantina, both in Dogtown; the acclaimed Savage in Fox Park; and Rise Coffee in the Grove.
2:45 p.m., March 16 — Ben Poremba closes restaurants
Ben Poremba has announced the closure of his restaurants Elaia, Olio, Nixta and the Benevolent King until further notice effective immediately. Prepared meals will be available for takeout and curbside pick-up through his market, AO&Co.
"What resources can we rely on to mitigate our and our employees loss of income?" Poremba asked in a social-media post announcing the closures.
He continued, "I want to illustrate to you what this means, not out of self-pity or need for empathy. But rather to implore our leaders into acting effectively and quickly. We're laying off 100 people. Loyal, hardworking, committed individuals who need to provide for their families. Small businesses don't have the kind of funds to continue to operate and wait for some future tax credit. Small businesses need immediate relief in order to continue to support their employees and their families.
"How can we contribute to our community's efforts?
"We're in the process of working with local charities to determine how we can best use our skills and resources to assist those who are have greater needs."
1:42 p.m., March 16 — Herbie's and Kingside Diner close
After initially offering curbside pickup, Herbie's in Clayton and Kingside Diner in Clayton and the Central West End are now closed until further notice, owner Aaron Teitelbaum announced Monday afternoon.
"We want to provide a place of employment for our staff — the dedicated men and women who are committed to providing the very best dining experiences for our guests," Teitelbaum posted on Facebook. "And at the same time we want to respect the public health needs of our community in this unprecedented national emergency.
"As soon as government health officials assure us it is safe for our guests, our staff, and our community, we will reopen — serving you with joy and pride.
"Our restaurants will be donating food on hand to local food banks and shelters and remain committed to being a part of the health of Saint Louis."
11:40 a.m., March 16 — Gerard Craft closes restaurants
Gerard Craft announced in an Instagram video Monday that he is closing his restaurants Pastaria, Sardella, Brasserie by Niche, Taste and Brasswell until further notice.
"This (crisis) is affecting both health and finance, and unfortunately the cures for both of these are in direct conflict with each other," Craft said.
Craft said he did not want to put diners or employees in harm's way.
"After seeing nights of very crowded dining rooms, I found myself more terrified than relieved," he said.
Cinder House, a partnership with Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis, will remain open.
Craft said the restaurants will not offer takeout or delivery options.
"At this time, all experts are telling us that bringing people to work every day for nonessential services is continuing to make the spread of coronavirus worse, so we are going to shut down completely," he said.
Craft said his company's kitchens will work on providing free meals to those in need (more details will be announced later) and free to-go meals for his employees.
"We are fortunate enough, thanks to amazing business partners who are also working hard to provide relief for other St. Louis restaurants, to be able to provide a small financial runway for our employees during this time," he said.
However, Craft acknowledges many restaurants can't provide this. He calls on elected leaders to provide emergency unemployment benefits to both salaried and hourly workers furloughed during the crisis, to eliminate the payroll tax and to provide rent and loan abatement for those affected by restaurant closures.
