Meet Maple. Founded by Caleb Merkl and famous chef David Chang, this app puts a restaurant in the palm of your hand… literally. By using your smartphone, you can order off a rotating menu of some of the best foods in town. With Michelin starred chefs on the team, each day you will be able to choose from three different lunches (at $12 each) and dinners (at $15).

Prepared by some of New York City’s finest chefs, the dishes change every day – so Maple keeps the ingredients and the selections fresh. Oh, and those hunger pangs won’t have long to grumble: The company promises delivery in just 30 minutes or less!

As of right now, Maple will only be delivering to customers south of Chambers Street. So Lower Manhattan, get ready to enjoy some delicious meals right in the comfort of your own home or office! Maple does plan to expand its service area in the future.
