In April 2020, just after the start of the pandemic, Apt613 contributors created a gigantic roundup of local restaurants offering takeout while indoor dining was limited or prohibited. Nearly two years later, with indoor dining closed once again, we have updated the list and are once again urging readers to support their favourite places in this difficult time.
