The luxury of wining and dining in restaurants has been put on pause for now as people do their part to stay home and flatten the Covid-19 curve during the nation-wide “circuit breaker”. The city’s top restaurants have responded with takeaway and drive-through options as well as home delivery services, each one stretching their creativity to offer comfort food takes on signature dishes, special multi-course menus, gift boxes and fun plating challenges.

To make these trying times easier to swill, some of these MICHELIN-listed restaurants have also opened their cellars to make their exclusive collections of wine available for purchase and delivery. Here is where to go to have a special tipple or two delivered right to your door.
