Chef Celina Tio quickly threw her carryout and curbside pickup operation into high gear at The Belfry, launching an online ordering website featuring not only the food but also the booze that has made her pub a popular dinner-only pitstop in the Crossroads.
Shop from Tio's top-notch collection of bourbon, gin, vodka, mezcal, beer, cider and wine, with plenty of local labels in addition to some nicer high-end bottles if you feel like celebrating. Start with the arancini, confit chicken wings or deviled eggs, then choose from Tio's popular burger, Reuben dog, steak frites or mac 'n' cheese. The famous Chicken & Biscuit, which features a buttermilk-marinated chicken thigh dredged in seasoned flour on top of a house buttermilk biscuit with honey Sriracha and a sunny-side up egg, is also on offer. Whichever you choose, you simply must add the bread pudding for dessert.
Order any time during day, pickup is between 4:30 and 8pm during the week and 9pm on weekends.
