The Foodie Magician’s Guide to NYC Take Out & Delivery

While we're all in favor of cooking a nourishing meal at home, we understand there are days when the only thing we're in the mood for is food prepared by someone else. To find out what spots a professional restaurant-goer is still hitting up for take out and delivery, we turned to none other than Josh Beckerman, aka The Foodie Magician, who in another world delighted audiences with food-centric magic tricks. From sushi to pizza to Thai food, his takeout list should satisfy whatever craving you have – not to mention, give you a way to support your favorite local businesses.
