These Famous U.S. Restaurants Will Ship Food Right to Your Door

Dinner just got way more exciting with meal kits from celebrity chef-led establishments and local restaurants people can’t get enough of.

Restaurants around the country have been hit hard by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The industry went from a booming success to being in desperate need of customers and funds, almost overnight. While many restaurants have closed permanently, others have gotten creative with how they reach diners around the country—and even around the world—with meal kit deliveries. Now fans of hundreds of restaurants can get their favorite dish, dessert, and sometimes even drinks delivered right to their front door to create themselves from the safety of their own kitchen, without having to guess what ingredients are needed or go to the grocery store. Most of these restaurants are using Goldbelly, a platform that is also helping to support essential workers through Goldbelly’s Givebelly City Subscriptions. There are six cities to choose from including New York City, New Orleans, and Miami. After choosing a city to subscribe to you’ll get monthly deliveries for three or six months with iconic dishes from some of that city’s most famous restaurants. 100% of all net proceeds go toward delivering Goldbelly meal kit boxes to vital essential workers.

Despite being the world’s second-largest country, how many of these Canadian natural wonders are you aware of?

Although its landmass covers over 3.85 million square miles, 80% of Canada’s population lives within 100 miles of the U.S. border. So, while most may know of Ontario’s Niagara Falls and the Rockies in Alberta, it’s probably fair to say that many areas, like Nunavut and the Northwest Territories, may be something of a mystery to many. Yet, they’re home to some of the world’s most sublime landscapes, that perhaps deserve more international recognition.

Where Were These 10 Famous Dishes Invented? Their Origins Are All in Dispute

Food fight!

Few things inspire national and civic pride the way a signature food or beverage does.
