Michigan has been dealing with a widespread novel coronavirus outbreak since early March. Measures to contain the spread of the disease have saved lives, but also turned the local restaurant scene upside down. Restaurants that may never have thought of offering take-away are now rapidly turning to online ordering platforms and roadside pick-up procedures, masks have become part of everyday uniform in many kitchens, and an unprecedented number of food service employees have been laid off . Detroiters rely on groceries and take-out more than ever.
