Across the North Fork, restaurants are being forced to shut their doors or switch to delivery and takeout to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus.

The executive order from Gov. Andrew Cuomo has some restaurateurs thinking up creative ways to serve their customers during the pandemic.

That means drive-thru windows aren’t just for fast food joints anymore.

Barrow Food House, which opened on Main Road in Aquebogue last year, has transformed a window at its restaurant into a drive or walk-up window for customers picking up to-go orders.

“Now, it is more important than ever to have fresh, thoughtfully-sourced and healthy prepared foods to feed your family,” said Amanda Falcone, who runs the restaurant with her husband, Kyle Romeo.

They began serving their fast-casual fare through their drive-up window, located on the east side of their building, on Wednesday. You can also visit their walk-up window on the west side of the building.

Their full menu is available for take-out at the restaurant, located at 452 Main Road in Aquebogue, or for delivery via DoorDash. To place an order for pick-up, call 631-779-3379.
