This clue might be a double definition.

'take' is the first definition.
(I know that eat is a more specific form of take)

'down in person' is the second definition.
'eat' can be an answer for 'down' (I've seen this in other clues). I am not sure about the 'in person' bit.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for eat that I've seen before include "Use a knife and fork" , "get stuck in" , "Gobble up" , "Make food disappear" , "Worry" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
