Take Out & Curbside Family Meals
Are you tired of cooking at home lately? We get it, so here are a few ideas of how to take a break from doing dishes and support locally owned businesses in Marietta. From rustic comfort food, to the more upscale there are plenty of options on how to feed your family with take-out and curbside pickup.
Carriage House Catering usually prepares food for weddings and private events, but they smartly pivoted several months back into creating delicious family meals for pick-up and they also can deliver it right to your door in the city of Marietta & West Cobb areas. We can personally attest to quite a few of the meals, as we’ve ordered from them on several occasions. The menu changes weekly, but here are some of our favs…Chicken/Waffles, green beams and garden salad. Teriyaki smoked Salmon, veggie fried rice, stir fry veggies & a madarin orange/edamame salad. On most Fridays they offer a Charcuterie platter with various meats, cheeses, figs, pimento cheese, house pickles and crab dip…mmm!
Carriage house offers some other provisions such as quart size chicken salad and pimento cheese as well. They also have beer, wine and Tito’s vodka available for delivery and pick-up. http://www.carriagehouse-catering.com

Elizabeth’s Edibles Person Chef Services can make your life sooo much easier by having her prep and cook your family meals for an entire week or just a meal for two. She can make breakfast items such as a ham & broccoli fritata or create your own “Bundle of Edibles” and choose an entree and 2 sides…some of our favs are the Beach Shrimp, Bacon wrapped mini meatloaf and Herb stuffed Pork Loin…the side dish choices are plentiful to include-Fried Green Tomatoes, Asparagus w/lemon and Green Bean Casserole. Those are some classic comfort food items that are just heat n eat to make for an easy no mess meal. Bigger family, no problem to add larger entree and side dish portions to your order.
I’ve had the privilege of cooking with Chef Elizabeth and she knows her Southern recipes and is a joy to be around! She normally offers cooking classes at various venues, but because of the pandemic is now doing virtual classes instead. Check out their website for more info and how to order. http://www.myelizabethsedibles.com

Spring Restaurant is taking curbside cuisine to a whole new level with their recent offerings and we just ordered from them recently and from beginning to end, the ordering process is efficient and flawless. Order on their website for next day pick-up, they will text message you once you order, then again when they’re preparing your order and lastly when it’s ready for curbside pick-up on Mill St. nearby the Herb Shop and Starbucks.
The menu changes weekly and we opted for the char-grilled Salmon over a cous cous salad and also the Grilled Chicken Caesar salad. We added on the velvety smooth Tomato soup with brioche croutons and finished our meal with a delectable dessert of Sweet Corn Custard with homemade caramel corn, blueberry and lime…perfect Summertime sweet treat. If you want a truly indulgent snack, then try the Hudson Valley Foie Gras or Kaluga Caviar served with house made potato chips. Brian So, the owner/chef is of Korean descent and has some related items this week…LA grilled short rib and spicy pork belly Bulgogi along with fermented soybean soup & Napa Kimchi. You can also pair some great wines with your meal from Sommelier Daniel Crawford’s exclusive selections. http://springmarietta.com

The Butcher The Baker really pivoted since pandemic began and has been offering curbside pick-up family meals for quite a while now. They post a graphic on their Facebook page each week with the changing menu and some of our favs have been the Herb Roasted whole Lemon Chicken, with Summer Succotash, Grits, Bread and a treat from Sessions Stand. For true comfort food, try the Bacon/Beef meatloaf, mashed potatoes, roasted green beans, fresh bread & a treat from SS. TBTB does have dine-in option with tables spaced apart and they are using the upstairs area to accommodate additional guests.
Recently they’ve created a provisions area just inside the door and has lots of goodies to include grab n go salads/sammies, pimento cheese, house smoked bacon, chicken salad, various canned/pickled items, fresh baked breads/crackers and some fun party drink mixes to make your own craft cocktails at home.
