“With the shutdown of dining rooms across the state, the companies that supply meat, produce, and other wholesale goods to the city’s top restaurants have also experienced dramatic drops in business. The temporary fix: Many are now pivoting to sell their high-end goods directly to locals — meaning fish that once went to Michelin-starred restaurants like Le Bernardin can now be purchased for at-home cooking.
Some companies are only doing pickup, while others have beefed up their online presences and delivery offerings. Many of them work with small local farms, and several have been in business for decades but have never sold directly to consumers until now. The wholesalers’ clients range from luxurious to everyday dining, but whatever the price point, they present an additional way to buy groceries. This list will be updated, so check back for more options — though be warned, as demand goes up, delivery times may as well. And go to this story to learn more about the measures that companies are taking to change business.”
