What is CurAte?

+
Our mission is to ethically support and explore the diverse cuisines of the world that are located right in your backyard. CurAte works with local restaurants to expand the palate of our customers, shining light on dishes curated by passionate individuals and organizations.

Why is the meal a surprise?

+
We want to keep CurAte a fun, interesting, and unique experience. We’ve found that this is the best way to keep preconceived ideas out of the mix of trying new cuisines!

Do you accommodate allergies or dietary restrictions?

+
While we can’t necessarily accommodate allergies or dietary restrictions, we can certainly make sure you don’t get stuck with something you can’t eat. Always shoot us an email or a message on Facebook or Instagram if you have a question.

How much food will we be getting?

+
We design each meal to have enough food for two people. While some cuisines and restaurants may differ in the exact quantity they provide, two people’s worth is our goal.

How does CurAte work?

+
We work with a local restaurant that we love to choose a meal for our community. We make sure the restaurants get their fair share of all sales, unlike some common delivery businesses. At the time of the event, our staff heads to the restaurant to bag and load each meal into an insulated, temperature controlled bag. Some of our staff take the bags out for delivery, and some take them back to a pickup location. From there, it’s up to you!

When are events?

+
At this time, events are every other Wednesday at 6pm.

What does CurAte do to limit the environmental impact of to-go food?

+
By batching our deliveries into large groups and offering a single pickup location, we’re able to limit the number of delivery vehicles on the road. We also ask each restaurant we work with to exclude any unnecessary packaging or flatware.

What ZIP codes do you deliver to?

+
While this may change at any time, we currently deliver to the following zip codes: 14625, 14623, 14621, 14620, 14619, 14618, 14615, 14613, 14611, 14610, 14609, 14607, 14606, 14605, 14604, 14534, 14526, 14450, 14445, 14608

What is the restaurant’s cut of the meal?

+
For every meal, the restaurant receives $25.

How does delivery work?

+
The delivery window is centered on the event time. For a 6pm event, the delivery window spans from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. This means you may receive your meal at the beginning of that time, or the end. Your meal will be kept hot throughout the entire delivery.

How does pickup work?

+
The pickup window is centered on the event time. For a 6pm event, the delivery window spans from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. While each meal is kept hot, we recommend picking up your meal as early as possible during the pickup window. When you pick up your order you can also pick up a drink pairing to go!

Can I recommend a restaurant?

+
Please do! If you ever have an idea please shoot us an email or a DM.
