If you haven't tried a family meal from one of Manhattan Beach's restaurants, what better time to start than on Takeout Tuesday?
As local restaurants work to stay afloat during the coronavirus shutdown orders, many have moved to takeout service, and several have started offering "family meals."
These family meals give a chance for the family cook to have a break for a night. Most serve four to six people (although some are meant for two, in which case it is noted.)
And in most cases, the family meals represent a significant "deal" compared to what you would spend to take the family out to dinner.
We've started by rounding up some family meal options that are available for tonight. Keep reading to find more family meals that are offered on other nights of the week.
Also note: The prices listed do not include tax and gratuity.
