Chef-driven delivery that isn't from a restaurant

A new meal delivery service enters the San Diego scene today with the launch of Munchery, which adds our fair city to its current markets in San Francisco, New York City, Los Angeles and Seattle. First founded in San Francisco in 2010, Munchery is an alternative to restaurant delivery; the company's chefs, who include alums from Spago and Michael Mina, cook up more than 40 daily menu options that start at approximately $7 per person — running from a salmon poke rice bowl to vegan chipotle cauliflower tacos and family-size pot roast dinner — that arrive ready to reheat and eat.

There's a monthly $8.95 fee for the service, which can be accessed online or via an app, with deliveries able to be scheduled in advance or for same-day arrival if ordered before 10 a.m. Caesar Chu, Munchery's general manager of Southern California, says that San Diego's delivery area spans 300 square miles, including neighborhoods ranging from Encinitas to Ocean Beach, La Jolla, Little Italy and the SDSU area. For those that want to be a little more interactive with their dinner, Munchery just launched a ready-to-cook option, meal kits for two that could vary from tofu pho to lamb gyro wraps.
