The Best Meal Boxes for the Long Weekend

Embrace the first long weekend of the season with one of the best meal boxes in the city. Whether you prefer to fire up the grill or lean toward a heat-and-eat type of situation, there's a curated special sure to satisfy.

Long weekends -- like everything else -- may not feel quite the same in lockdown. Yet, with a gorgeous forecast on the horizon, vaccines being doled out in record numbers and, perhaps, more freedom ahead, there's plenty to celebrate.

This long weekend, sit back, try to relax, and bedeck the table with a range of gorgeous dishes meant to put you in a celebratory mood. Order one of the best meal boxes in the city this long weekend and toast a day off in style.
