The Most Impressive Takeout Spreads for a Quarantine Date Night-In

As we continue to do our part in staying home and social distancing, you're probably missing weekend dinner parties and date-nights a little extra these days. Whether you've run out of things to cook or you're safely celebrating a special occasion, make the most of your quaran-time and treat your isolation partner to date night-in. Here are some of the most impressive takeout dinners for every date night scenario. 

Splurge

Personalized omakase boxes, 6-course meals and $200 steak dinners might not be exactly what comes to mind when you think of takeout. Whether you're celebrating an anniversary, birthday or simply want to treat yourself to a special night, order from any one of the spots below to indulge your partner. Set the table, change out of your new found go-to lounge pants and set the mood as if you are sitting in one of Toronto's many fine-dining rooms.

Jacobs & Co. Steakhouse

Zen Japanese Restaurant

DIY

Everyone seems to be discovering their inner Masterchef lately, from homemade pasta and bread to intensive baking projects, we all have a little more time on our hands. If you still like the idea of cooking with your partner for a date night but feel bogged down by having to grocery shop, prep and do the dishes, try out one of these spots for DIY dinner kits. Build your own tacos, pizza kits and a cote de boeuf meal are a great way to explore the kitchen, without the commitment.

A Candlelit Italian Dinner

If you want to set the mood for a romantic night in but don't feel like completely splurging, Italian is typically a safe choice for a crowdpleaser (AKA just the two of you). From slow-cooked ragus, fresh egg pastas and chewy Neapolitan pies, Italian fare is guaranteed to liven up your weekend. Now that some of Toronto's favourite Italian restaurants are offering takeout, the choices are plenty.

Terroni

Figo

CANO

Pizzeria Moretti

Pizza and a Bottle of Wine

You want to have some semblance of a celebratory weekend night but maybe it's been a long week. You want something satisfying, but still, from the comfort of your couch. Nothing beats a a large pie with a bottle of wine for your "dinner and a movie" date night.

Maker Pizza

Queen Margherita Pizza

The Fourth Man in the Fire Pizzeria

Blondies Pizza

Apartment Picnic

The weather is slowly, but surely, getting warmer and with that comes the temptation for booze-induced picnics in the park, but with the risk of lofty fines, even picnicking with your quarantine-mate poses risks. You might not be outside (unless you're lucky enough to have outdoor space) but order a spread from any one of these spots to create your own makeshift picnic. Grab a blanket, sprawl out, open a few beers and get creative with your surroundings.

Patois

Bar Sybanne

La Cubana

Adamson Barbecue
