It’s hard to say whether ghost kitchens or meal prep services like Woodspoon would have come to fruition if there hadn’t been a pandemic, but now that they are a reality they seem destined to stay. Anyone who needs evidence of their staying power can find it in Everytable, a meal delivery service that just opened its fifth, sixth, and seventh New York City locations.
Besides providing chef-prepared dishes that are available for pickup or delivery, like Woodspoon, Everytable’s model includes another innovation of the last couple of years — the sliding fee scale based, in its case, on the median income of the recipient’s zip code. (A variation on this theme can be found in restaurants that embrace a pay-what-you-want philosophy.)
Everytable’s three new New York City locations are at 945 Flatbush Avenue (near Snyder Ave.), Brooklyn; 457 W. 125th Street (near Amsterdam Ave.); and 111 Worth Street (near Lafayette Street).
