Good news foodies! Seattle start-up and chef-made food delivery service Lish is now making deliveries in Bellevue and Medina.

“We’ve always wanted to expand to the Eastside where a lot of young families and professionals live,” Lish co-founder Aakhil Fardeen said. “After a year serving Seattle we knew it’s time to go across the lake.”

Lish features a rotating menu from local chefs and delivers right to your front door. Dishes are made in small batches specifically designed to travel well. Past options have included sake cured salmon congee, sashimi moriawase, and falafel and pacific rockfish ceviche. Users have an array of options for side dishes and desserts, including falafel and cauliflower salad or a sea salted chocolate chip cookie. Each meal comes in environmentally-friendly compostable packaging special heating instructions from the chef.

“My co-founder Mark and I started Lish after personally struggling to find time to make home-cooked meals every day,” Fardeen said. “Existing restaurant delivery services delivered food that is made to be consumed at restaurants and often arrives soggy or lukewarm. With Lish, it’s like having your own personal chef who curates a rotating menu of handcrafted meals every day.”

Lish features food from more than 25 chefs, including two of Seattle’s top award-winning chefs, Ethan Stowell and Ericka Burke, the brains behind Northwest dining favorites, Tavolata, How To Cook a Wolf, and Volunteer Park Café.

Eastside deliveries need to be ordered before 4 p.m. to receive same-day delivery. Dinner orders can be placed days in advance, and Lish offers three delivery windows to choose from: 5-6 p.m., 6-7 p.m. and 7-8 p.m.
