In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, Gov. Ned Lamont has prohibited on-premises dining at Connecticut restaurants. That doesn’t mean West Hartford’s restaurants are closed, however.
Below is a searchable list of restaurants, grocery stores, and bakeries that remain open for take-out, delivery, and/or curbside pickup. Scroll to the right to access phone numbers and websites for each establishment.
This list was initially compiled with the assistance of the West Hartford Chamber of Commerce and Eat IN Connecticut, and continued updates are being made by the staff at We-Ha.com. We apologize if there are any errors, and please provide any updates in the comments, or email [email protected].
Lamont’s Executive Order No. 7G, issued March 19, also permits certain restaurants and other eating establishments to sell sealed containers of alcohol with take-out food orders, subject to certain provisions. The businesses must have an active restaurant, café or tavern liquor permit issued by the Department of Consumer Protection, the sale must accompany a pick-up of food prepared on the premises, and can only sell the type of alcoholic beverages that they would ordinarily sell for on-premies consumption.
By a further executive order of the governor, businesses are now permitted to deliver alcoholic beverages along with food orders.

Hello, this is Leo Harry. In who many minutes your resturant can deliver the order.
Leo, is your business in West Hartford? Please provide the name if so and we will add it. ~Ronni
Hi Ronni, please add Tea Break in The center to the list, they are open
Will do! Thanks for letting me know!
Moes on north main st is open. Pick up Delivery and curbside.
Hi David! We will add it ASAP. ~Ronni
Why is something called a “database “ when it is missing a great number of restaurants in this town? The chamber list is clearly not an accurate database of who is open. We wouldn’t want to misguide potential customers. Thanks.
Agreed this list is incomplete and hurts other businesses.
Our apologies, we are all doing the best we can in unprecedented times. The intent is for all restaurants to be included and we will add any that were inadvertently left off. ~Ronni
We are trying to make this list as comprehensive as possible. Other than the health department’s list of permits, there is no one list anywhere of all of the restaurants in West Hartford. We are working off multiple documents and apologize for any errors which will be fixed as soon as we can. ~Ronni
every database has to start somewhere – great job on that! – I’m sure whoever put this together would happily update it on request… maybe add a note on the front page to add restaurants? Also ask them to provide urls to menus?
Barcelona Wine Bar is also available for Take out (delivery and curbside pick up!)
We have favorites, seasonal and kids options. We also can pair wines to go as well – yum.
Noodles and Company is open.
Thanks, Rick. We are sorry for the omission and will add that information as soon as possible. ~Ronni
Thanks for fixing!
Please make a PDF version of this list available as well. This format is very difficult to scroll through, both on phone and on computer
I’m reluctant to turn it into a PDF because it’s much more difficult to update. When we feel like the list is complete we will do it, but there are many updates being made this morning. ~Ronni
Shish Kebab House has Take out and delivery via Uber eats available 4:30pm-9pm.
Hot Basil Thai Eatery is open for Take Out and Delivery. Regular hours. Call for take out, delivery online through uber eats, door, dash, and grub hub.
Just tried calling Bricco’s multiple times and it goes straight to voicemail. Does anyone know if they’re still open?
My understanding is that they are open for take-out and delivery. There was a big sign in the window Saturday stating that. Phone number on that sign (I took a photo of it) is 860-233-0220. ~Ronni
Hall’s market? They have been pretty well stocked.
Does anyone know if Prai is open?
Contacted them and they’re open for curbside and delivery.
Yes they are open and delicious!
Is anyone doing family size meals versus individual entrees? Trays of chicken or pasta?
Hi Mary! Many of the restaurants are doing that, but there’s just not space in the chart to indicate it. I would check the websites for those you are considering because many have been updated with specific deals! ~Ronni
Cafe Louise, you can call me 860-977-0356. or go onto our web site for this week’s menu offerings.
Not sure I’d you wanted to add it but Red Robin bear the mall just closed

Bricco is not accepting gift cards as payment, which is noteworthy.

Hi Milla! Sam’s Gyro has now been added to the list. ~Ronni
Is there a way that the We-Ha list can be distributed to all area restaurants with listed email addresses etc., a timeframe of EOB today/tomorrow that everyone has the responsibility to respond with hours of operation and protocols so you won’t have random updates on this thread? As a small business owner not of West Hartford, I greatly support the restaurants here and I know for a fact there are more restaurants than whatt is listed. Let’s get this taken care of so we can take care of our local businesses.
Hi Dawn! I am personally updating the story and the table of restaurants from the comments as well as from emails I have received – and the restaurants have been instructed to email me with changes. There are a few other lists of restaurants out there, which maybe list 20-30 that are in West Hartford, but we have more than 90 listed and while there may be a few missing, it’s very comprehensive. Many hours have gone into the creation and updating of this list, including many phone calls to verify. If you know of any specifically that are missing, please email me the information (name, address, website, phone number, and open for takeout and/or delivery) and I will gladly make the changes. ~Ronni
Thanks for the great list!
Harvest Wine Bar appears to be open 4-8 Tues-Sat per their Facebook page.
Thanks, Sue! Added! I actually took a photo of their signs yesterday when I was in the Center but hadn’t realized they weren’t on the list yet.

[…] I’ve been trying very hard to keep up with the status of West Hartford’s restaurants, and at least every few days there is a major update – such as the reopening of Zohara and Savoy – to be made to the list of places open for takeout and delivery. Please note that if there is a question about a place be open or closed, I will always err on the side saying a restaurant is open, because you’re going to have to call or order online anyway, and I don’t want to be the one driving business away. You can find the updated list of restaurants here. […]
They are definitely open for curbside pickup. And the food was outstanding the two times that I ordered it.
