Handled properly, sushi works well for takeout and delivery. Sure, the bites of fresh fish and pillowy rice are best consumed as soon as possible. But there’s rarely a need to reheat or assemble, and platters of nigiri and maki tend to hold their shape as they transit across town.

Many of the region’s top spots for sushi remain open for takeout and delivery, including those featured on this list of essentials. One notable exception, Michelin-starred Sushi Taro, is taking a break while figuring out how to come back as a takeout-first business. In most cases, refreshing Japanese beers and bottles of sake are available, often at a discount. Here are 14 options to consider the next time the sushi cravings strikes at home.
