Planning an exciting date night or celebrating a special occasion in Nashville looks extremely different this year, but even for those not ready to dine out there are still loads of takeout options to help make occasion special. Not all of them have to break the bank, either.

Many Nashville restaurants who never offered takeout before are now in on the takeout action with to-go meals on offer throughout the pandemic — including some of the city’s top destinations for fancy dinners. Sure, the food may require a bit of reheating, but can also be less expensive than eating at the restaurant in pre-COVID 19 times since restaurants are developing new menus and pricing tailored to takeout.

Pro-tip: To recreate a restaurant feel at home, use real plates and silverware. Check out the restaurant’s Instagram and try to copy its plating technique. Several spots are also offering bottles of wine and cocktails to go, which can take dinner at home to the next level.

A number of Nashville restaurants have resumed outdoor and indoor dining. If that’s an option, it’s noted on the map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining on-premises at restaurants, as there are still safety concerns. For updated information on coronavirus cases, visit the City of Nashville website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio and sidewalk dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
