Try These 2 Food Delivery Concepts From A Top Dallas Chef

By Kristen Romano | October 25, 2020 | Food & Drink

Lauded chef Julian Barsotti brings Italian eats and Tex-Mex staples straight to your door with two new delivery services.

1. The Grape Ape

Enjoy frosé for days with chef Julian Barsotti’s new Italian delivery service that will have you saying, “Che fico”—also known as Italian for “that’s so cool!” A three-wheeled Italian wine delivery vehicle called an “Ape” inspired the name “The Grape Ape.” Clever, right? Each kit comes with a half gallon of frosé or a bottle of Chianti Reserva, while the menu includes antipasto, baked ziti alla vodka or a lasagna that will make your taste buds sing. Perfect for the pandemic, this no-contact delivery makes for a fun night in. 469.724.1787,

2. Ritas & Queso

Barsotti’s other delivery service is a Tex-Mex dream, offering queso, salsa, enchiladas, margaritas y más! The standard kit comes with frozen or on-the-rocks margs along with queso and salsa to snack on. Order the family meal kit for a full-out dinner with margs, salsa and classic enchiladas. Taste one last bit of summer with the watermelon margs! 214.521.7193,
