Yes, more and more restaurants are opening dining rooms in Tennessee and across the country as COVID-19 quarantine orders ease a little.

But many folks still might be more comfortable getting food to go or getting it delivered. So we thought we'd give you some suggestions for really unique and/or really well done take-out and delivery offerings in Music City.

Here are five current favorites:

Riddim N Spice, North Nashville

Riddim N Spice in North Nashville is serving Caribbean food to go a few blocks from Meharry Medical College

What: Delicious Caribbean food — mouth-watering fall-off-the-bone jerk chicken, a fresh cucumber-mango salad with a bite, perfectly cooked fried plantains, and bowls where you can pick your protein and toppings. Pick the lamb. It's tender and oh-so tasty.

And consider getting a pan of rum cake!

Where: 2116 Meharry Blvd.

Hours: Noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday

To order take out: RiddimNSpice.com or 615-953-7121

Delivery: GrubHub, Postmates and DoorDash

Loveless Biscuit Kitchen, Bellevue

A worker at the new Loveless Biscuit Kitchen drive-thru window poses for a picture before serving to go food.

What: The Loveless Cafe is slinging its biscuits, peach preserves, fried chicken and other Southern comforts out of the gas station next door for now.

There's even a drive-thru where you can pick up some of the best hash brown casserole and 'nanner puddin' you've ever had. Oh, and if you can't wait to get ya a Loveless Cafe T-shirt or other gear, they're selling that inside, too.

Where: 8456 Highway 100

Hours: 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

To order: Drive thru or walk in

Hathorne Nashville, West Nashville

Housemade pappardelle with mushroom & rabbit ragu to go from Hathorne Nashville on Charlotte Avenue

What: Maybe the only fine dining spot in Nashville where the chef is going to load the food into your car himself. They're taking social distancing seriously at Hathorne, so it's down to two folks working, executive chef Evan LoJacono and chef/owner John Stephenson. The guys keep it fresh, rotating the small menu once a week based on what ingredients are in season.

Where: 4708 Charlotte Ave.

Hours: 4 to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday only

To order: HathorneNashville.com

Delivery: None
