Bon Appetit, the award-winning, food-focused magazine brand, is turning a new page by partnering with Grubhub on online delivery. Bon Appetit, Delivered is a virtual, delivery-only restaurant where customers order food online to be delivered.
Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises (LEYE) is the group behind the proverbial digital curtain that will operate this virtual kitchen. LEYE has plenty of experience managing restaurants, as the Chicago-based brand operates more than 130 restaurants in multiple states.
Meals will come fully prepared from a menu designed by Bon Appetit’s Test Kitchen editors and produced in conjunction with LEYE.
Currently, Bon Appetit’s delivery meals are available solely in Chicago. Meal choices include salmon with lemon sesame sauce, garlic fried rice and spicy Sambal chicken skewers. The menu will vary for lunch and dinner, and seasonal dishes will be substituted throughout the year. Delivery is available Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and on weekends from 3:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Bon Appetit, Delivered marks the second deliver-only concept for LEYE and Grubhub. The two companies previously announced they were collaborating on a Whole30 diet-inspired virtual kitchen also in the Chicago market.
