Although restaurants in Chester County and all across the region are closed for sit-down dining, many of them are offering their meals for takeout, writes Craig LaBan for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Based on its readers’ picks, the newspaper has compiled a list of the best eateries for takeout in Chester County.

Even in the throes of a pandemic, Andiario in West Chester continues to dominate the local restaurant scene, constantly earning praise for its offerings.

Chef Anthony Andiario is famous for his approach to seasonal food, delicious wood-fired flavors, and extraordinary pastas, and none of that has wavered with his shift to filling takeout containers instead of plates.

Some of the recent highlights from the restaurant’s three-course menus include a hot-smoked trout with “foragings” and meatballs over polenta.

At Bluefin Eagleview, head chef Yong Kim specializes in contemporary Japanese cuisine with innovative, modern interpretations of classic menu items. While the original Bluefin is in East Norriton, Kim’s Bluefin Eagleview quickly became a neighborhood favorite when it opened in Exton’s Eagleview Town Center.

Meanwhile, Mi Pais in Malvern offers mouth-watering traditional Colombian fare, including various empanadas, arepas, and a standout sancocho stew.

Finally, Estrella Tacos y Mas in Downingtown will impress even the most demanding palettes with its breakfast taco, beer-battered fish taco, and Frito Pie.
