Delivery has become a common service in restaurants around the United States during the COVID-19 pandemic, but the practice is usually confined to the local area. So, if you’re locked down in a city without any good restaurant options, you’re pretty much out of luck. One New Orleans restaurant, however, wants to make its dishes available nationwide. The famous Commander’s Palace will start shipping its food right to your door, no matter where you live.
Commander’s Palace is famous for its Creole cuisine — particularly the turtle soup — and has been home to chefs like Emril Lagasse and Paul Prudhomme. Now, the restaurant has partnered with the Goldbelly food delivery service and will soon begin shipping nationwide.
By visiting the Commander’s Palace page on Goldbelly’s website, you’ll be able to order the famous turtle soup in two-quart quantities for $89, a spiced sugarcane lacquered quail kit for $99, and a pecan pie dessert for $39. If you can’t decide and would prefer to get the full flavor of the restaurant’s menu, there’s a three-course dinner for two ($179) and for four ($299). It includes cheesy garlic bread, soup, spiced sugarcane-lacquered quail, bacon-braised cabbage, and pecan pie.
Each package comes with step-by-step instructions for preparing the frozen dishes, and even how to store the leftovers — but we doubt you’ll have any.
