So you stocked up on milk, water, booze, and tins of tuna. Now that tuna sandwich-bourbon combo isn’t looking so attractive. Good news: Some intrepid Washington restaurants are coming to the rescue, bringing everything from Italian subs to piping hot bowls of pho to your doorstep. Check back in with us for an updated list as the storm develops.


Several locations of this pizza chain are up and running pizzas out the door, including branches serving Fairfax, Tenley, Chevy Chase, Silver Spring, and Takoma Park.

Bangkok 54

One of our favorite Thai spots is delivering in Arlington, so order up papaya salad and spicy roast duck curry and get back in bed.

Cafe Divan

Tired of Italian pies? We’re fans of the pide, a pizza-like dish, from this upper Georgetown Turkish cafe. The restaurant is hoping to deliver through dinner hours on Monday.

City Lights of China

Get indulgent during Sandy and order a Peking duck delivered from this Dupont Circle Chinese spot.

Great Wall Szechuan House

The 14th Street Chinese spot is currently open and offering delivery for lunch, and will also do so for dinner pending the storm. Check out the Ma La menu for authentically spicy eats such as ma po tofu.

Mamma Lucia

The Bethesda and Rockville locations are among those accepting delivery orders for piping hot pies.

Pho 14

Fiending for pho in Columbia Heights? The deliveryman is expected to arrive at this Vietnamese spot, so you may be in luck for bowls of brothy goodness delivered to your home.

Ravi Kabob House

One of our favorite kabob spots is serving homes in Arlington, so order up delicious naan, bone-in chicken kabob, and spicy stewed chickpeas.  

Regent Thai

It’s dinner-only delivery service for now at this Dupont area Thai spot.

Taylor Gourmet

The Dupont Circle location of this Philly-style sandwich shop is the only one not delivering, meaning you can ride out the storm with a meatball sub and some mozz sticks if you live near the other DC locations or in Bethesda.
