With the rise of food delivery services catering to high end restaurants, Puritan & Company Chef/Owner Will Gilson has created a new, transport-friendly restaurant concept that is set to debut on February 5th. Called Puritan Trading Company, this “Ghost Restaurant” will have a separate menu, separate pickup located in the space next to Puritan & Company and its own separate website www.puritantradingcompany.com.

The menu is going to be a range of cuisine and concepts that cater to the takeout crowd and travel well. The food will be made out of the Puritan & Company kitchen, but the packaging and pickup of the orders will be completed out of the space next to Puritan & Company, which will act as a Ghost Restaurant. The restaurant is working exclusively through Caviar for the launch. Customers are encouraged to order directly through the Caviar website.

According to Gilson, “The menu features food we love from our travels around the world and the foods that WE would want to eat if we ordered take out. And most importantly, the food on this menu is designed to be packaged and transported,” said Gilson. “Construction of a restaurant in the space next door featuring this menu would be too costly at this point, so it’s almost like making a restaurant without an address.”

The genesis of the idea came from Gilson and his culinary team looking at how to incorporate some new and unique dishes that didn’t work on the current Puritan & Company menu or fit into the current concept. They let the idea of delivery service take hold and make it a creative and fun way to still make creative dishes for guests that also travel well.

 

Some of the menu selections include:

 

Scallop and linguica dumplings-sweet and sour piri piri sauce or roasted garlic aioli

Street food style seared udon noodles-chicken, cauliflower, shishito peppers, green onions

Jonah crab rangoons-sweet and sour piri piri sauce or roasted garlic aioli

Fried whole belly clams -squid ink aioli, grilled lemon, jalapeno, thai basil

Grilled pork belly banh mi-quick pickles, cilantro, sub roll, hoisin bbq

Spicy white clam garlic toast

Double fried chicken wings-jalapeno, cilantro-lime aioli, Sichuan oil

Spicy Fried cauliflower  -scallion, sesame, chili

Grilled marinated beef shortribs-ginger-scallion sauce

Guanciale fried chinese black rice

Crispy chicken sandwich -potato bun, pickles, iceberg, sweet and sour sauce

Service will be available seven days a week and information can be found on twitter and Instagram at @puritantrading and on the website at www.puritantradingcompany.com.
