Just wanted to give a shout out to a local place during this time of pick-up/delivery only. TakeOut Central just added COPA to their Durham delivery zone. It is one of the restaurants I have been meaning to get to but never made it, based on good reviews. Well, after a day of intense cleaning of pollen off decks, outdoor furniture and cars, hubby and I just couldn’t get up the energy to cook. Saw COPA on TakeOut Central decided to give it a go. They have family meal options that serve 2 or 4 that come with a salad, avocado, fried plantains, rice and black beans, and a choice of roasted pork or braised chicken. We went with the pork and also added a lovely appetizer-a meat and cheese plate of Serrano ham, Spanish chorizo, a couple of cheeses, olives and some Cuban bread. Everything was excellent, and setting out the meat and cheese as an app with some wine as a first course made made me feel almost as if we were dining out, instead of in the house we’ve been in for weeks!

I urge you to try this option to support our local places. I know that TakeOut charges the restaurants, but hey, they are a local franchise also and need to make some money too. Their drivers are great and customer service is top notch, also.

I highly recommend COPA!
