We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, sheltering in place doesn’t have to mean foregoing your favorite Bay Area bites. And for this round of restaurants, we’re focusing on Mexican spots that are sure to satisfy that craving for some good food. As the region's reopening plans have been paused, local Mexican restaurants are still looking for support and many have delivery and takeout options available.
