Since they first made the move to take-out, the team at Alcove has upped their game (and their offerings). If you’re not already a regular order-er of their tasty wares, just have a look at all the things you can get from Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli’s West End spot – there are starters like Chinese five spice wings, pierogi and fried shishito peppers if you’re feeling snacky. For heartier appetites there are dishes like blackened salmon tacos, burgers and strip steak, and if you’ve got a larger group of mouths to feed, there’s a family dinner option with either a half or whole chicken accompanied by a selection of sides. Don’t forget dessert: there’s cookie dough just there for the baking (or for the eating-right-out-of-the-container – it’s totally your call).
Be sure to peruse the Pantry & Bar section of the menu, too to see if there are things you might need – pasta and sauces by the pound or the pint and bread & butter pickles. They’ve got all sorts of things to help you outfit your bar (cocktail olives, bitters and simple syrup, for starters) as well as cocktail kits galore (everything from margaritas and daiquiris to sangria and espresso martinis). You can add beer and wine to your order if mixed drinks aren’t your thing.
Consult the menu on the Alcove website to see the glorious array of ways (including beer and wine) that they can make your time indoors a little more manageable (and delicious). They’re open from 12:00-8:00pm every day. For pick-up call 617.248.0050 or order online; for delivery, place your order through Caviar.
