Throughout the global COVID-19 outbreak, cities across the nation have been asked to adjust their operating procedures to protect vulnerable citizens. Chicago is adamant in prioritizing the health and safety of its residents while supporting local businesses. Here are nine North Side restaurants that have made their menus available for delivery so that you can enjoy Chicagoan fares from the comfort of home.
If you’re craving Italian food crafted in a scratch kitchen, then consider ordering from Volare Ristorante Italiano for lunch or dinner. Both menus include hearty portions of favorites like ravioli di ricotta and gnocchi alla vodka. Elegant entrée options include veal medallions sauteed in a lemon and white wine reduction, grilled salmon with sauteed spinach, and classic spaghetti al Pomodoro fresco with fresh ricotta. Add a side of truffle fries, jumbo shrimp, or homemade meatballs in a house-made tomato sauce for only five dollars each. You won’t want to miss any of their decadent Dolci menu options, either. For dessert, Volare serves crisp cannoli, rich tiramisu, and their signature “Chocolate Decadence,” which includes chocolate cake, chocolate mousse, chocolate sauce, and sweet strawberries. Volare also has an extensive wine list with both Italian and domestic reds, whites, and sparkling wines. At this time, Volare is happy to provide contact-free delivery to help protect both patrons and employees, and they have consistently complied with CDC and WHO regulations for safe food handling.

Doc B’s Restaurant and Bar

Doc B’s is a Chicago-born favorite for fresh, upscale American comfort food that has become a national franchise, and now they're offering both food and wine for delivery. Whether you’re craving a hot bowl of matzo ball soup, a juicy backyard-style burger, or even Danish barbecue ribs, Doc B’s has something on the menu you’ll love. Enjoy one of their crisp salads, like the Mediterranean Shrimp Salad with peppadew, jicama, and avocado vinaigrette, or The #1 Tuna Salad with seared ahi tuna with citrus ponzu, cucumber, and mangos. Their jaw-dropping sandwiches range from The Number Six with Cajun buttermilk fried chicken and pickles to slow-roasted pork and coleslaw on the Carnitas sandwich. Their entrées include Mama B’s chicken parmesan, 10-ounce chimichurri steak, and grilled salmon with kale. If you prefer something a little lighter, try one of their Wok Out Bowls with your choice of protein, broccoli, mushrooms, carrots, and cashews. Finish off your meal with a gelato cookie sandwich or a slice of double-decker chocolate cake. Ordering delivery is easy because Doc B’s has partnered with UberEats, DoorDash, Postmates, GrubHub, and Caviar. Additionally, Doc B’s is offering 10% off all curbside pickup orders if you’re craving some time out of the house while following all social distancing recommendations.
If you’ve ever craved Korean-style short rib and handmade tortillas, Forastero Restaurant in Old Town is the place for you. Forastero fuses Mexican and Korean cuisines with flavors that pack a huge punch. Their menu boasts creative tacos, like bulgogi tacos with Korean-style flat iron steak and the Esta Camaron taco with panko-battered shrimp and Korean aioli. Share an order of their spicy loaded kimchi fries with pork belly, white cheddar cheese, and sriracha or a plate of chicken wings served Kung-Fu style with habanero and apricot sauce or Dak-style with pomegranate molasses and gochugaru peppers. Veggie lovers will adore their vegan-friendly menu options. Try vegan soy chorizo on a cactus tortilla, vegan flautas with potato, and vegan kimchi on green tortillas, or their vegan Forastero taco with sauteed Gochujang-marinated tempeh, peppers, jicama, and mint. You can’t go wrong with their hot stone ramen or sizzling bibimbap. Forastero has moved to curbside pickup and delivery only during the COVID-19 outbreak to prioritize the health of both employees and patrons.

Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ

Although Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ is known for its tableside-cooked meats, they have pared their menu down so that you can still enjoy your favorite Gyu-Kaku items while staying safe at home. Enjoy garlic fried rice, miso chicken wings, or spicy kalbi bibimbap. Grab a side of their spicy addicting cucumber or shio negi cold tofu to refresh your palate. You can create your own combo meal with a choice of Gyu-Kaku meats such as bistro hanger steak, umakara pork, and garlic shrimp. Each combo comes with a half Gyu-Kaku salad, miso soup, and two house sauces. Plus, Gyu-Kaku is still celebrating happy hour, and they’ve made a selection of their alcoholic beverages available for takeout at this time. Pick up a bottle of sparkling wine, a bottle of Bell’s Two Hearted Ale, or any of their featured sake and toast to good food and good company.
This classic Chicago restaurant has prioritized online ordering to continue serving its iconic fares. Since 1963, Portillo’s has been a Chicago staple, and although their menu has evolved since Dick Portillo originally opened “The Dog House” on North Avenue in Villa Park, it’s still the go-to destination for jumbo chili cheese hot dogs, char-broiled cheeseburgers, and crinkle-cut cheese fries. Bite into a breaded chicken croissant or a classic Italian beef sandwich. Top everything off with a Portillo’s original chocolate cake shake.
If social distancing has left you missing weekend brunches, try ordering delivery from Yolk. This breakfast, brunch, and lunch joint is dishing up morning favorites to-go. Build your own scramble or try one of their signature three-egg scramblers, like the smoked salmon scrambler with cream cheese, red onion, tomatoes, and capers. Fan favorites include their savory Santa Fe frittata with farmhouse fresh biscuits and gravy or their cinnamon roll French toast for a sweeter pick. They also serve eggs benedict, steel-cut oats, and protein-packed bowls. If you’ve got an insatiable sweet tooth, try a slice of their Nutella Monkey Cake or their Very Berry French toast. Their Good Morning Burger is a perfect segue from breakfast to lunch—a brisket burger topped with bacon, cheddar, and a fried egg. Their steak and greens salad and lemon herb salmon salad are excellent and refreshing choices. Yolk has plenty of vegetarian options, like their grilled portobello salad and Avalon sunset sandwich, so there is something on the menu for everyone.
Fast-casual Italian dining in Chicago doesn’t get better than Buona. Between their daily specials and easy contactless delivery through DoorDash, you’ll love ordering dinner to-go from their Streeterville location. Pick up an Italian beef sandwich, a beef and cheddar croissant, or a meatball marinara sandwich for old-school classics that always hit the spot. Their menu sports a little bit of everything—Chicago-style hot dogs, crispy breaded chicken tenders, and protein bowls. Bite into a slice from one of their hand-rolled pizzas and choose from toppings like roasted vegetables, barbecue chicken, or beef and hot giardiniera, or keep it simple with four cheese toppings or a simple pepperoni pie. Add a side of Nonna’s potato salad, cheese fries, or coleslaw, and grab a slice of their original rainbow cone cake roll for dessert.
For eco-friendly dining, consider ordering from True Food Kitchen. Their menu focuses on locally sourced, sustainable ingredients, which means that each menu in True Food Kitchen locations across the country will be a little bit different. Plus, their menu selections change seasonally to ensure only the finest, freshest ingredients are being used. Try a bowl of creamy tomato soup, a light Mediterranean salad, or one of their iconic Inside Out Quinoa Burgers for lunch.

Their menu can also be adapted to meet keto and paleo diets, so be sure to mention any dietary restrictions when placing your order.
