You can get soups, salads, sandwiches, desserts or a three-course gourmet meal. Above, see the Muffaletta, white bean salad and Caesar salad.
Chef and owner Paul Sulek is a CIA graduate and has made the rounds at some of the country's finest, ranging from The Mansion On Turtle Creek in Dallas, The Whitney and The Country Club of Detroit. His wife Peg co-owns the business with him, and they create the menus together.

Whether you're busy, tired, lazy or just don't feel like cooking, places like Dish offer people a delicious answer to the what's-for-dinner question. It's fantastic that a chef of this caliber is bringing real-food solutions to our busy world.
