With so much going on in our lives right now, worrying about what to make for dinner shouldn’t be high on the list. The kids are going back to school and, whether we like it or not, things are trying to get back to normal even while the pandemic persists. Luckily for us, plenty of great eateries are still offering bulk-order, feast-style delivery and to-go options so you don’t have to lift a finger. Here are some of the best family meals in town:
If you miss the thrill of letting an all-star sushi chef surprise you with their freshest and most creative bites, don’t fret! Omakai Sushi has developed their very own Home-Akase box. Top quality and seasonal fish selections are still key factors, but this time you’ll get your meal delivered in a box that explains each bite so there isn’t any guessing.
