Colorado Restaurants Offering Delicious, Portable Seafood

Over the last several months, we’ve seen a major increase in people ordering delivery and to-go meals. This observation isn’t rocket science – when people are staying home, they have to find alternative ways to get the meals they love from their favorite local restaurants. And while this may have begun out of necessity due to the pandemic, we can expect at least some restaurants to continue offering delivery and pick up as options to patrons in the future to satisfy this new expectation.

People choose to dine out for many reasons – maybe it’s the ambiance, or to gather for a special occasion. Maybe it’s because you want the night off from cooking for yourself or your family. Perhaps, it’s because sometimes you just want to be served something you don’t (or haven’t yet mastered!) cooking at home. For many, this includes the world of seafood. There’s a perceived risk associated with being new to cooking seafood at home (we’ll save that “how-to” article for another time), but that doesn’t mean you have to go without.

We wanted to highlight a few restaurants in Colorado that are offering seafood as part of their delivery or take out menus. Prepare for your mouth to water – and good luck trying to decide which of these you’re going to try first!
