Even the fanciest of bottles are on offer from these Atlanta establishments, all offering curbside to-go and contactless payment.
This Virginia-Highland staple is allowing its loyal clientele to pick up not only delicious entrees, but wines as well. Nothing is off limits—if Murphy’s Wine Shop sells it, you can pick it up. That includes a 2004 Billecart-Salmon Brut Blanc de Blancs ($460) and 2014 Secret Door ‘1X’ Cabernet Sauvignon ($175). Check the Rare & Limited tab for the good stuff and to pay online.
Place an order at Aria before 3PM and you can pick it up between 5PM and 7PM the same day. The menu changes daily based on availability, with recent family meals for two including split yellow pea and vegetable soup and Springer Mountain Chicken with sweet potatoes, snap beans, lemon thyme and Yukon gold potatoes with steamed jasmine rice. Right before you check out, you’ll be tempted to add that day’s wine recommendations as well. At 50%t off, bottles are served up with qualifiers like “joyful and fully serious all at once” (Dolcetto, Idellwild, Fox Hill Vineyard, Mendocino 2017, $30). You can also donate to its Employee Assistance Fund on the website.

Take out and delivery hours are Monday through Friday, noon to 7:30PM, and Saturday, 3 to 8PM. (Mission + Market also offers free meals every Thursday for anyone who has lost their job during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

Out in downtown Roswell, Monkey 68 is quenching pan-Asian cravings Wednesday through Sunday, 4 to 8:30PM.

From 4PM to 9PM Monday through Wednesday, and noon to 9PM Thursday through Sunday, call Nina & Rafi at SPX Alley to secure your Detroit style pizzas, calzones, salads and more.
