Another option for supporting local restaurants in the ATX

AUSTIN (KXAN) — At the direction of Gov. Abbott, the Texas Department of State Health Services has issued guidelines for restaurants to sell bulk retail products from restaurant supply distributors directly to consumers.

One of the requirements restaurants have to follow is that and bulk products have to be in the original condition. That means the original packaging for the product when it arrives at the restaurant.

Under the rules laid out by Texas DSHS, eateries can sell packaged meats, fruits, vegetables and dry goods.

Restaurants selling these bulk products are offering them trough drive through, delivery, pick-up and curbside service.

“A vital part of our COVID-19 response is to ensure that there are readily available supplies of food and resources, whether that is at grocery stores or, in this case, restaurants,” said Governor Abbott.

“This guidance gives Texans another easily accessible option to buy the food they need to support their families. The State of Texas continues to work with distributors, retailers, and restaurants to ensure they have the support they need to continue providing for Texans.

“I thank Representative Tan Parker, the Texas Restaurant Association, and the Department of State Health Services for their collaboration to take this important step to help Texas families as our state responds to COVID-19.”

One restaurant taking advantage of these guidelines is Perry’s Steakouse and Grille located in downtown Austin.

Perry’s is offering various discounted cuts of steak straight from its butcher along with Perry’s Steak Butter and seasonong:

  • Pack with four-14 oz. Bone-In Filet Mignon: $124 (regularly $248 on Perry’s menu)
  • Pack with four-20 oz Prime Bone-In New York Strip Steaks: $116 (regularly $232 on Perry’s menu)
  • Pack with four-22 oz Prime Bone-In Cowboy Ribeyes: $114 (regularly $228 on Perry’s menu)
  • Pack with two-35oz Prime Long Bone Tomahawk Ribeyes: $99 (regularly $198 on Perry’s menu)

Anyone interested in ordering steaks from Perry’s should call (512) 474-6300 to reserve a pack for curbside pickup after 3 p.m.

    This is cool. 

    Here in VA, they're now allowing restaurants to sell beer and wine to-go and for delivery.  A lot of places are trying to liquidate their alcohol inventory this way.  

    Heck, another place is including a roll of TP for every $25 you spend. No joke.

    Many of my customers are selling their restaurant supplies in bulk out the door. They simply aren’t making enough money doing straight to go orders.

    Good question @Legume.  A sword with 3 uncooked picanhas skewered on it might be a top seller.  

    It might be worth a drive downtown once in a while.  But we're going to support local mom and pop places where we have known the owners/families for years on a very regular basis.

    Sword could be a game changer, but yes, when we do buy out now, it’s all small, very local places too.  A marg-to-go kit that was 16 oz of premixed marg (ice not added, because “kit”) and a couple of limes in a styrofoam soup container was a nice surprise.

    Mary and I are ordering more takeout than we ever do normally - just for that reason. We mostly cook at home, but our community needs these businesses.
    Also, we've discovered some takeout is a bargain. Take salads for an example - I can't get all the food at the store to make a decent salad but I can order one takeout. It's a win-win for that particular dish.

    We have a restaurant meat supply company in the Birmingham area named Evans Meats. They had started selling meat for curbside pickup. They claim it is to help the public out, however, it's really self-serving. They are attempting to sell off product before it spoils. Evans claims to be a high-end meat supplier, but everything I have ever had from them is decidedly low-end fare.
    Now if Buckhead Beef were to start curbside pickup, I would be in the pickup line immediately.
