We’ve all been there: cooking at home feels like a chore, yet you don’t quite feel like getting dressed up to go out either. What’s a couple to do? As tempting as it may be, resist the siren call of that microwaveable meal in your freezer or ordering pizza from the same old delivery spot down the street. Instead, elevate your takeout date with fresh eats from Orlando restaurants.
Several Orlando restaurants offer special takeout and delivery meals, and delivery services like UberEats and Postmates make ordering from your favorite restaurants around town a breeze. And if you’re a fan of cooking but not grocery shopping, several subscription services are available.
We’ve done the research so you don’t have to. These date night worthy meals are waiting to be delivered to your doorstep!

Sometimes the biggest hassle with cooking is the time needed to invest in going to the grocery store and meal prep. Meal delivery kits like Hello Fresh and Blue Apron provide all the ingredients you need along with easy to follow recipes.
If it’s just the grocery store trip that’s bogging you down, check out Shipt, which is a grocery delivery service. Place your order in the app and a shopper will head to the store to get your groceries and deliver. As of now, the only participating grocery store is Publix. You can also order liquor, which is available from ABC Fine Wine & Spirits.
