Many local restaurants are offering curbside pickup and free delivery of meals during the mandatory restriction on dining in. But some are offering innovative to-go options that include fixed-price family meals, gift cards with purchase and discount deals. Some restaurant owners and operators are donating at least part of their proceeds to help laid-off wait-staff and other hourly employees.
