A Fresh Take on Take-Out

A Fresh Take on Take-Out

By Tatum McIsaac.

Southeastern Massachusetts offers a plethora of takeout joints;
below are hidden gems  with culinary delightsawaiting adventurous eaters.

It’s 4 p.m. and according to Chicago-based research firm Food Genius, 80 percent of Americans don’t know what they’re eating tonight for dinner. From busy working parents to empty nesters, and millennials-turned-foodies, takeout is taking on a whole new meaning. Gone are the days of pizza and Chinese as your only options. And with a desire for people to feel like they’ve cooked a healthy, homemade meal at home, places are popping up that offer everything from grab-and-go, locally sourced bites to farm-to-table meals that are ready in less than 30 minutes.

Tatum McIsaac lives in Kingston and renovated her kitchen while working on this article. During that time, she became all too familiar with the area’s takeout spots.
