Virtual restaurants (also sometimes called “ghost kitchens”) are becoming popular and we now have several in our area. Virtual restaurants are delivery-only (a few allow pick-up) with kitchens in a pre-existing restaurant or eatery. Meaning, there is no physical space for patrons to eat, they must order and have the food delivered.
Here is a list of ghost kitchens recently opened:
