DoorDash has opened another ghost kitchen in New York City. The company’s first ghost kitchen opened two years ago in Redwood City, Calif. The project is being done in cooperation with Nimbus, a New York City-based shared kitchen.

The ghost kitchen will be producing food from DOMODOMO sushi restaurant, Kings Co Imperial, Pies ‘n’ Thighs, moon bowls and Little Caesars. Unlike the company’s other ghost kitchens, the new location offers dine-in service.

“New York is one of the many hubs for noteworthy dining experiences, and we’re proud to bring DoorDash Kitchens to Brooklyn in partnership with Nimbus, adding even more options for food-lovers to choose from in their neighborhood,” said Ruth Isenstadt, senior director of DoorDash Kitchens. “While this location is delivery-forward in nature to enable the growth of restaurant partners, we’re looking forward to offering a dine-in area for upwards of twenty guests – a first for DoorDash Kitchens.”

Many have speculated on DoorDash’s plan in the restaurant space. The company has tried several partnerships and food-production ventures. It clearly has an understanding of what consumers want delivered, given the large amounts of data the company collects. The new location offers takeout, delivery and dine-in.

“We’re proud to partner with DoorDash by providing turn-key kitchen infrastructure and community event spaces to their restaurant partners,” said Camilla Opperman, co-founder & CEO of Nimbus. “DoorDash has fiercely advocated for the growth of these restaurants by supporting their delivery and pick-up operations, so we’re thrilled to complement these efforts by managing the real estate, supporting kitchen operations, and running events from our community front-of-house.”
