Georgetown has a true history of grit and brick, but has become a thriving culinary and cultural destination over recent years as well, fostering a local character that draws in visitors from all over town. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the neighborhood has also shown its resilience, with local breweries, restaurants, dive bars, and cake shops making adjustments to more takeout options and outdoor seating in industrial chic spaces. Below are just a few of the most notable options in the area that offer great takeout and delivery, listed from north to south.

The latest CDC guidance for vaccinated diners during the COVID-19 outbreak is here; dining out still carries risks for unvaccinated diners and workers. Please be aware of changing local rules, and check individual restaurant websites for any additional restrictions such as mask requirements. Find a local vaccination site here. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
