One delicious way to have a safe-but-still-a-bit-exciting adventure these days is to try new cuisine or a new restaurant (via take out or delivery, of course!), and we have a few resources to help you do just that.

Our BestSideYourSide.com page has restaurant listings separated into take out and delivery categories. You can browse, search by keyword, name, or location, and find contact information and links to order.

The Punta Gorda Rotary is promoting Stand By Charlotte County. This initiative makes it easy to buy restaurant gift cards now, to use later, with their comprehensive Master Restaurant List (downloadable Word document). What a nice way to support local restaurants and help keep their workers employed while helping you plan for future foodie adventures!

If you use Facebook, there’s a great public group called Charlotte County Curbside Restaurants that features posts and specials from many local restaurants. It’s a good place to discover a new place and get recommendations for whatever you're in the mood for.

Another fun Southwest Florida Facebook page is Living in the 941, which shares a variety of posts of local interest (as well as a few funnies). They have issued the “941 Gift Card Challenge,” and would love to hear about your Charlotte County gift card purchase.

We hope these links help you safely and scrumptiously enjoy our area, whether you are here now or planning your return. 

Stay safe, everyone!
