Chef Daniel Boulud announced the launch of Daniel Boulud Kitchen, a new delivery concept designed to bring the culinary flavor of his New York restaurant DANIEL to the home. With a weekly-changing menu of French classics with contemporary appeal rooted in the rhythm of the seasons and safely prepared by Boulud’s meticulously trained team, orders can be placed immediately though the new website, or through delivery platform, Tock To-Go.
Each dish will be prepared in the acclaimed DANIEL kitchen under the strictest of CDC guidelines ensuring the safety of staff through rigorous health protocol and with every order that goes out. All team members will be required to wear masks and gloves at all times and with a more than 5,000 square foot kitchen, there is ample space for social distancing. Limited delivery service will adhere to the same guidelines. Curbside pick-up will be outdoors under the canopy of DANIEL.
Said Boulud, “This has been the most difficult and challenging time I’ve ever faced as a chef and restaurateur. I miss being in the kitchen, but I also miss my guests and I miss my staff – many of whom have been by my side for years. With Daniel Boulud Kitchen, we have the ability to bring back some additional members and as we grow, we can bring back even more. We are in the business of giving love and compassion, and being able to cook together and to do what we do best at a time when people are looking for delicious alternatives for their home dining means the world.”
The launch of the Daniel Boulud Kitchen concept in New York City is a model that Boulud’s restaurant group, The Dinex Group, intends to expand as the summer season approaches. They expect to add deliveries to many summer hubs from Westchester to the Hamptons, and even Greenwich by mid-June.
Said Dinex CEO Sebastien Silvestri, “This is an entirely new brand that will allow us to expand first into markets where some of our restaurants already exist, and then elsewhere we know people want to experience the cuisine of Daniel Boulud in the safety of their own home. It’s a tremendous platform that we are excited about growing over time and utilizing for years to come.”
