Nervous about restaurants? Then order delivery, L.A. mayor says
“If you were going to go out to dinner, maybe you don’t go out to dinner,” the mayor said. “But order out at that restaurant. Let’s prop up those local businesses that are here in Los Angeles.”
A number of restaurants around town are prepared. Josef Centeno, chef-owner of Baco Mercat, Bar Ama and Orsa & Winston in downtown L.A. and Ama Cita in Culver City, will start offering new heat-and-serve dishes on Friday.
“We encourage anyone who doesn’t feel great to stay home and order food for delivery or pickup via @trycaviar or by calling the restaurants,” Centeno wrote in an Instagram post on Thursday.

Hi all, These are crazy times. And I want to give a shout-out to our local and federal government for really keeping us in the dark and not acting swiftly. In an attempt to be responsible and proactive, we are offering new delivery packages of heat-and-serve dishes starting Friday. We encourage anyone who doesn’t feel great to stay home and order food for delivery or pickup via @trycaviar or by calling the restaurants. If you do come out, make sure you are being responsible for the well-being of others and yourself. At the restaurants we are following extreme hand-washing and sanitizing measures, above and beyond the already high standards for food service. I am not forcing employees to work and making it at-will. We are trying to put the safety of our staff and community first. We are staying informed and playing it day by day and hour by hour. Everyone be safe and be safe to others. ⚡️⚡️⚡️ josef
