Now that 2020’s pixie dust at last, it’s as good a time as ever to give your tastebuds a little new year’s jolt. Sure, you perfected a few recipes on your own last year, but if your mouth’s burned out on basic dishes and stews, why not treat yourself to some barbecue, square pies and/or margaritas? Make your resolutions about variety this year, and check out these local spots for takeout, pickup and outdoor dining that’ll fit every flavor profile.
As always, remember to tip handsomely and wear your mask!
