Totes. Merchandise. Meal kits. Anything you can, really, from your favorite restaurant’s e-commerce shops. (Some thoughts: a sweatshirt from iconic, family-owned Italian restaurant Emilio’s Batallo; a festive Negroni assortment from Dante, the In Fauci we trust American flag 2021 shirt and I will buy this official best bar in America; or Il Buco’s holiday bundle, which includes its cookbook and a tray from John Derian.)
Many restaurants, in light of ever-fluctuating restrictions, have also launched commerce side hustles. Williamson, for example, now sells produce and wellness boxes as well as bar cart essentials. Over in Manhattan, Cote sells ready-to-grill meats and recently launched a wine club.
