Besides a gleaming mega-market, the Texas outpost of this Italian food mecca boasts a takeout food counter, a bakery stocked with fresh-baked breads and gorgeous pastries, and three restaurants, from which a curated selection of dishes is available for takeout. Order this to go: The dense, deep-dish lasagna all’Emiliana boasts six layers of house-made pasta cradling layers of ragù alla bolognese and creamy béchamel. Follow that (if you have room) with tiramisu, profiteroles, or panna cotta. Pro tip: The number of people allowed inside is restricted; avoid lunchtime, when it may be crowded. To-go orders can be made between noon and 8 p.m., either in person at the customer service counter or online, with delivery from UberEats, DoorDash, and Caviar. If the kitchen is slammed, your delivery order may not be accepted, but you can try for a later time.
