COVID has made it easier to sit on the couch and order in without any guilt. But sometimes you want an elevated dining experience not found on Seamless or Uber Eats without having to go out to eat. CookUnity, founded in Brooklyn in 2018, brings gourmet meals from top and rising chefs in the culinary world delivered straight to your door. Structured as a weekly subscription service, the company offers over 300 meal options that start at a very reasonable $10.49 per meal.
