Our Takeout Guide to NYC's West Village
How to Bring The Party to You

As the temperature drops in the city, film director Elizabeth Wood is getting cozy on her couch. After almost fifteen years in the West Village, she’s pretty much a take-out guru. Lucky you, she dished out a list of her favorite spots to order in. Twist open a good bottle of Merlot because the lazy takeout feast of your dreams is just a phone call away…

Health and Harmony

“This small health food / organic grocery store is the reason I haven’t actually entered a grocery store in NYC in like a year. I literally call every day (sometimes three times a day) and they pick out good stuff and deliver within minutes. Plus you can open a house account so you don’t even have to find your wallet. They recently expanded and my household takes full credit cause we order so damn much from them.”

Mémé Mediterranean

“I love going in person, but it’s a go-to for when I invite people over for dinner and then don’t actually have time to cook (or rather my husband doesn’t have time to cook, who am I kidding). They don’t deliver, but you call and it’s ready in like twenty for pick-up, and everything on the menu is just perfect.”

Taim

“For when lots of people are coming over and it’s not exactly dinner time, or for a party, or when there’s going to be a lot of drinking involved – they have giant platters of salads and three flavors of falafel, their pickles and peppers are addictive and their lentil soup, perfect. Order if you are super snacky for any variety or reasons. Try the fries in their hummus and don’t judge me until you do.”

Abingdon Market

ABINGDON MARKET

“I’ve been calling 24-hours a day for close to fifteen years. It’s feet from my house but I take pride in leaving as little as possible, so I call for every household essential: beer, amazing seasonal flowers and the only good little papayas I ever see in the city.”
