Local restaurants are struggling as more and more Seattleites practice social distancing in an effort to contain the coronavirus. Several, including Arriba Cantina and Local 360, say COVID-19 played a role in their recent decisions to close for good

In the wake of governor Jay Inslee's announcement shutting down restaurants and bars across the state, those that remain open are doing what they can to maintain takeout and delivery business (still allowed under the emergency declaration). You want to help, but, let's face it...beans are cheaper than delivery. We'll keep this article updated as we learn of businesses offering delivery discounts and particularly amusing shticks to drum up business during this trying time (though you should also support all the great Seattle restaurants that aren't offering specials).
