A month after announcing a partnership to deliver Whole30-approved meals through Grubhub, Chicago-based multiconcept operator Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises (LEYE) is back with another delivery-only operation.

Bon Appetit, Delivered is LEYE’s latest virtual concept, this one featuring dishes from the magazine as curated by theBon AppetitTest Kitchen editors. The menu promises to bring the “most popular dishes from the pages of its magazine, website and Instagram feed to life,” according to a statement.

"We're excited to continue our partnership with Grubhub to offer some of Bon Appetit's most beloved dishes for delivery in Chicago," said R.J. Melman, president of LEYE, in a statement. "We look forward to preparing these delicious recipes from one of the food world's most iconic brands in our kitchens for this new virtual restaurant."

The menu, which is available for lunch and dinner, features dishes that will change with the seasons. Current selections include Cauliflower Bolognese, Broccoli Caesar Salad, Lemon and Garlic Roasted Chicken Thighs with Warm Honey Glazed Brussels Sprouts, and Cider-Braised Pork Shoulder with Butternut Squash.

LEYE’s Whole30 Delivered concept, which launched last month, sells lunches and dinners that are approved for consumers following the Whole30 eating plan, which is focused on unprocessed foods.

The multiconcept operator has been an innovator in delivery-only concepts for several years. It also operates virtual restaurants Seaside’s and Naoki Fried Chicken in Chicago.
