Greenwich is fortunate to have many quick and delicious dining establishments. Whether you’re craving a spicy yellowtail sushi roll or chicken nuggets, these restaurants in Greenwich will deliver right to your door
Restaurants nationwide have needed to adjust their services after gathering restrictions were placed in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. These seven Greenwich restaurants have shifted their services to provide speedy carryout and delivery options so that you can still enjoy the food you love at home while keeping safe.
Little Thai Kitchen
Since 2005, Little Thai Kitchen has been a staple for South Asian fares in Greenwich. This corner restaurant might call itself little, but they are packing huge flavors into their dishes. Pad Thai is one of their best-selling menu items, as well as pan-fried or steamed pork dumplings. But don’t be afraid to try something out of the box. Their menu boasts a wide selection of Thai favorites, and there’s no wrong item. Whether it’s their lime chili chicken dinner, spicy duck choo chee with snow peas, broccoli, and bell peppers, or lemongrass shrimp, you’ll love the vibrant flavors and the bold spices found here. A bowl of tom yum soup is the perfect way to warm up a chilly evening, and their drunken noodles with ga prow sauce are a local favorite. Don’t forget the extras, like a side of steamed broccoli, a tall glass of Thai tea, and a fried honey banana or a mango with coconut sticky rice for dessert.
For the time being, Little Thai Kitchen is offering 10% off all orders, both takeout and delivery, and ordering online can be done in a few simple clicks. You can find additional offers on their website, such as 10% off your first online order and $5 off an online order of $50 or more.
Located on Lewis Court, Kira Sushi has been serving authentic Japanese cuisine to Greenwich for nearly fifteen years. Their delicately plated sushi and sashimi are as picturesque as they are delicious. Start your meal with a black seaweed hijiki salad with sesame or a spicy crab salad with spring mix, or savor their seafood miso soup with crab, shrimp, scallops, and fish cakes. For hand-rolled sushi, stick to the classics with a salmon roll, get a serving of vegetables with a sweet potato tempura roll, or spice it up with a yellowtail jalapeno roll. Their dragon roll comes with toasted eel, cucumber, and avocado, and is topped with flying fish roe tobiko. Specialty rolls are brimming with an extra flavor punch. Some of the chef’s favorites are the Hawaii roll with Alaskan king crab, spicy shrimp, and tobiko, and the tropical roll, which adds mango for a sweet surprise. Kira Sushi’s impressive teriyaki kitchen produces cooked entrees as delightful as their sushi. For a luxurious meal, try their Angus filet mignon teriyaki or scallop teriyaki. Supplement your dinner with a hearty plate of Japanese-style fried rice with salmon, shrimp, beef, chicken, or simply veggies. Their delivery service is prompt, and it’s simple to order online directly from their site.
India Avenue serves up classic Indian cuisine, and it’s the ideal takeout for a movie night. Grab a plate of lemon rice, lamb saag with spinach and ginger, or basil chicken tikka and gather around the kitchen table because Grubhub is delivering, and delivery is free with your first order. If you’re craving curry, try their spicy chicken Chettinad or their vegetarian chana masala. You can’t go wrong with an order of shrimp madras or marinated, clay oven-baked lamb chops with tandoori masala. Vegetarians will love their varied selection of meat-free dishes, such as black lentil dal tandoor pasha and malai kofta mixed vegetable dumplings with dry fruit spices. Don’t forget a side of onion naan and mango chutney, and you’ll definitely want to try their mango lassi, a sweet and spiced yogurt-based drink.
If you’re in the mood for pizza, Doppio is your go-to destination. Their pizzas speak for themselves. The specialty pies are divided into two types: red sauce and white sauce pizzas. Red sauce pizzas include the Diavolo pizza with mozzarella and spicy salami, the Four Seasons pizza with ham, mushrooms, artichokes, mozzarella, and olives, and the Americano pizza, which is their take on the traditional supreme pie. If you prefer white sauce, try the Belle Haven pizza with pears, truffle oil, gorgonzola, and mozzarella, or the Greenwich signature pie with wild mushrooms and prosciutto.
If you’re in the mood for Italian food but are hankering for something besides pizza, Doppio is still an excellent dinner option. You can choose from paninis, risotto, pasta, soups, salads, and more. Try the seafood risotto with calamari, clams, and shrimp, or the charcoal-grilled salmon. For a lighter meal, try the Verdure panini, an endive salad, or one of their smaller plates, like short ribs or bruschetta. If you still have room for dessert, check out their indulgent dessert menu, where you can find sweet wild berry tart, Nutella pizza with strawberries and powdered sugar, and homemade tiramisu. Delivery is free with all orders over $20; there is no minimum order requirement for curbside pickup. Plus, you can expect your made-to-order pizza to arrive at your doorstep within the hour still hot from the oven.
This Old Greenwich staple has been a leader during the current pandemic. In addition to offering takeout and delivery, Garden Catering is hoping to provide 10,000 meals to community members working in the health care system and other essential businesses throughout the city. Their “Nugs Not Hugs” campaign is a cleverly titled tie-in to both the government-mandated social distancing efforts as well as Garden Catering’s famous chicken nuggets. Proceeds from the campaign will be used to feed our community, and you can participate by going online to their Nugs Not Hugs campaign or ordering in-store. In addition, all gift cards are 15% off and can be used now or later.
Garden Catering’s hottest item is, of course, their chicken nuggets, which can be ordered by the pound or in one of their special dishes, accompanied by fries. Other menu favorites are the Hotsy fries with chili and cheese, chicken parmesan sandwiches, and the Garden wrap, which is stuffed with chicken nuggets, potato cones, and American cheese and finished with a honey mustard dressing. Breakfast is also on the menu with items like steak, egg, and cheese sandwiches and bacon potato wraps, guaranteeing you will start your day off on the right foot.
Famous Greek Kitchen
For a bite of Mediterranean food, look no further than Byram’s Famous Greek Kitchen. This family-run establishment prepares homemade Greek classics, and they’ve been a proud member of the community for more than thirty years. Popular menu items are freshly made dolmades, which are grape leaves stuffed with rice and herbs, befteki sandwiches, and lamb meatballs with a mint yogurt sauce. Start your meal with spanakopita, spinach-filled phyllo dough, or tyropita, a feta cheese pie. For something lighter, there is the 5 Shades of Green salad with avocados, granny smith apples, pistachios, golden raisins, and gorgonzola. This kitchen is also dishing up delectable deep-dish pizzas that you won’t be able to resist. Their specialty hummus pizza comes topped with goat cheese, kalamata olives, sliced Yukon Gold potatoes, cherry tomatoes, and a drizzle of olive oil. Add a side of traditional avgolemono soup or Sriracha fries with bleu cheese dipping sauce to finish your meal. Have everything delivered for free whenever you order with Grubhub.
Abis Japanese Restaurant
This Japanese restaurant has adopted an all takeout and delivery-focused approach in accordance with recent gathering restrictions. They are dedicated to the health and safety of both diners and employees, so they’re prioritizing sanitation efforts. Fortunately for everyone who loves Abis’ remarkable dishes, they are still serving up their full menu during this time and are open their regular hours.
Abis prides itself on its sushi favorites, such as shrimp tempura rolls and spicy salmon rolls, as well as a variety of specialty rolls. Try the Y2K specialty roll that places spicy yellowtail with a panko crunch on top of a California roll, the lobster tempura roll, the spicy tuna roll, the lobster avocado roll, or the mango roll with shrimp tempura and avocado inside topped with a mango crunch. Additionally, a few Korean fares make an appearance at Abis, such as beef bulgogi, seafood pancakes, and kimchi. For dessert, try their banana tempura or mochi ice cream. Delivery is available for free, so don’t wait to place your order.
