Though he is no longer involved with the restaurant, The NoMad was opened by chef Daniel Humm, who has three Michelin stars at his Eleven Madison Park. His most famous creation for the NoMad menu was his whole roasted chicken for two, stuffed under the skin with a mixture of foie gras, black truffles, and brioche crumbs. It’s priced at $98 when the restaurant is open for business — but it’s also the sole item The NoMad is currently selling for pickup. The price is $30 per person (so $60 for the whole bird) or $40 per person with sides and dessert.
> Location: Oklahoma City
The capital of Oklahoma might not be the first place people think of for refined tasting-menu dining, but in 2018 Bon Appétit named this 20-seat establishment the best new restaurant in America. Its ten-course menu goes for $110 per person. On March 19, however, after shutting down its dining room, Nonesuch began offering a limited menu for pickup (with delivery promised for the future). Sample offerings: bison broth ($8 per quart), grilled vegetables with yogurt and seasoned bread crumbs ($15), and okonomoyaki (Japanese pancake) with pork belly and Szechuan pickles ($15).
> Location: Brooklyn
This iconic New York steakhouse, established in 1887, doesn’t offer tasting menus, but a prime steak for two costs $114.90 and a wedge salad with bacon, tomatoes, and blue cheese goes for $19.95. The restaurant doesn’t take credit cards, either — just cash, checks, debit cards, or house charge cards. Much of the regular menu is now available for takeout, but prices are the same as for dine-in. Besides steak and salads, choices include a burger for $16.95 ($22.40 for a cheeseburger with fries) and six jumbo shrimp for $29.905.
Pineapple and Pearls
> Location: Washington D.C.
With two Michelin stars, this restaurant offers “elegant yet playful” tasting menus of about nine courses priced at $325 per person, with drinks included. (A shorter menu is served at the bar for $150 per person, without drinks.) While it isn’t selling takeout meals directly, the same owners’ catering operation, Rose’s at Home, is offering delivery of two-night and three-night packages. Such dishes as lychee salad with pork sausage, baked rigatoni alla vodka with garlic bread, and pickle-brined fried chicken are on the menus. An eight-course Pineapple and Pearls menu, delivered, is also available from Rose’s at $250 per person ($300 on weekends).
SingleThread Farm – Restaurant – Inn
> Location: Healdsburg, California
The 11-course tasting menu at this Michelin-three-star restaurant in the Sonoma County wine country is priced at $330 per person. The restaurant’s to-go program, in contrast, now offers a changing menu of complete dinners for four — built around such main dishes as hearth-roasted turbot, organic Petaluma chicken, or pork, shrimp, and scallop gyoza hotpot — for $75 total. The restaurant also gives patrons the chance to buy meals to be provided to seniors and needy families in the hospitality, viticultural, and agricultural industries.
