#TakeoutTuesday: Eat around the world – locally!

We’ve been sharing suggestions with you on where to grab-n-go your meals in Downtown Nashua. Now that we’ve done blogs grouped by proximity, we thought it might be helpful to share those names with you grouped by restaurant type.

Starting this week, we’ll be sharing categories of eateries, to help you decide where you want to eat, and enable you to find new places to support, as our locally owned businesses continue to stay open for us despite their challenges.

Why not commit to #TakeoutTuesday (or whatever day works for you and your family) every week, and expand your culinary horizons? Affordable and delicious options await you, with easy curbside pickup or delivery, and no grocery shopping and cooking for you!

This week, let’s explore the international flavors available to us in Downtown Nashua!
