The Brooklyn Nets locked up the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference for the 2021 NBA Playoffs—and DoorDash has you absolutely covered on delivery options so you don’t miss a moment of any game.
Whether you’re looking for a party platter of sliders or tacos to share with your crew, decadent personal meals to sweeten the wins, or even all natural/vegan options, we’ve compiled the top eateries to have delivered to your door this season.
Let’s start with a local legend: the world-famous Pies ‘N’ Thighs fried chicken and pie. This iconic dish was featured on DDD’s “Decadent Dishes,” listed among Food & Wine’s “Best Fried Chicken in the US,” and called the “Best Southern Restaurant in New York” by Grub Street. You can split one of their slider platters if you’re watching with a crew... or order a three-piece box of chicken and a slice of their boozy pecan pies to confirm the rave reviews for yourself.
Can’t get enough of southern comfort food? Keep the party going with Peaches HotHouse, recently featured on Food Network’s Unique Eats. Their Hot Chicken is the star of the show, combining spicy dry rub with a signature sauce, but the catfish, creole shrimp and grits, and fried green tomatoes all make worthy contenders.
Empanada City’s smoothies, desserts and (of course) empanadas became a local favorite quickly after its 2017 opening. So quickly, in fact, that they opened a second location in Bushwick in May 2020. Their empanadas are infused with the spices and flavors from the family owner’s combined Puerto Rican and Dominican heritage—and filled with different blends of meats, cheeses, vegetables, and fruit. For added obsession, you can enjoy them with one three homemade dipping sauces.
Warude makes every effort to use organic ingredients that are as close as possible to their most natural forms. While they specialize in japanese bowls and world-fusion tacos, the other magic ingredient in every WARUDE recipe is the tradition of Japanese home cooking.
Born on the sunny beaches of the Yucatan, Tacombi started serving tacos out of a converted VW bus. Now the New York favorite shares authentic Mexican tacos from multiple neighborhood taquerias. Order one of their burritos filled with marinated, slow-roasted meat or freshly caught fish, and add either their agua fresca or cócteles—all made in-house daily.
Korean Soul Food + Ramen = happy customers. In Korea, eating noodles on-the-go is part of everyday life. Mŏkbar also proudly serves Korean “Anju”—or shareable small plates—typically served with ice cold Beer and Soju, a perfect pairing for game day with a group.
Founded in 2009 by sisters Melissa Elsen and Emily Elsen, Four & Twenty BlackBirds Pies brings new meaning to the term local pie shop. Their colorful pies’ fresh and seasonal ingredients are exclusively sourced from local orchards, earning them “Artisans of the Year” by Time Out New York and other high praise from multiple international food media.
Is there anything better than having a deliciously saucy Louisiana seafood boil in the comfort of your own home? Claw Daddy has all the delicious heavy hitters of New Orleans’ cajun and creole meals (po’boys, southern sides and various crab types galore), plus a signature adult Capri Sun drink menu!
For the vegetarian and vegan basketball fans, may we present the go-to spot for plant-based sandwiches and bowls, juices, smoothies and dandelion brews. The Black-owned vegan spot offers both an innovative delivery menu and hand-crafted meal kits updated every week (with one donated meal for every three bought).
For authentic, handcrafted jerk chicken and escovitch fish, look no further. Peppas tender Caribbean comfort food is served fresh off the fire grill and seasoned to perfection (with a hearty selection of sides) for the ultimate indulgence at home.
Arguably the classic choice for watching a game—you can’t go wrong with wings. But Brooklyn Wing House doesn’t skimp on creativity. For a twist on the classic chicken and waffles, choose from red velvet or white chocolate and macadamia nut waffle flavors. Add a mango or passion fruit lemonade to wash it all down.
High quality, diverse and delectable sushi rolls are just a few taps away for game day. The Silver Rice menu is both ingredient fresh and regularly updated with innovative new rolls. They even have a Doordash exclusive roll, the Neji Aji Roll: a horse mackerel roll with scallions.
