Whether it's long-established al fresco dining or makeshift sidewalk picnic tables, many restaurants have necessarily committed to patio life—but some can't. We put out a call on Instagram on Sunday for your favourite Vancouver restaurants that don't have open air dining (AKA, the spots that are 100% dependent on takeout under the current provincial restrictions).

I must credit the idea for this post to my dear friend Laura, who is such a diehard supporter of restaurants that she's ordered takeout thrice a week since long before the pandemic began. #BuyLocal goals, am I right?

Here are your favourite patio-less places to consider the next time you order in. So, tonight.
