Offerings: The innovative "incubator" currently offers several unique dining "experiences," including take-and-bake comfort classics that can feed a crowd, a fast food-style lunch, an "early bird" menu priced for two people, a Puerto Rican dinner, and whatever else chef Eric Rivera thinks up.

If you've got some extra cash to spend and you're looking for a quarantine date night idea, you might also consider the immersive "Travel from Home" series: You'll get a themed dinner menu that evokes a place you probably can't travel to right now, drinks, a music and video playlist, and other accoutrements to set the mood. The theme for April 26 is "camping," so the delivery includes a two-person tent, trail mix, wild mushroom stew, a s'mores kit, Rainiers, and "pine aroma."
Preorder info: Takeout experiences are available to book on Tock from now through May
How to get it: Depends on the experience—some are pickup only and some have the option for delivery as well
