Ever since it was announced that California would be one of the U.S. states to undergo a shutdown of schools, restaurants, bars, and even parks, life in general has become a bit disorienting and stressful. Most of us have been cooped up at home, venturing out only for groceries or a bit of fresh air. While the isolation may have brought out the gourmet chef in some of us, many are craving a meal that did not come from from the depths of their freezer. Here are 10 local (and open!) restaurants dishing out our favorite take-out menu items to help you get through your quarantine.
