DoorDash Kitchens Opens Shared-Space in Brooklyn

DoorDash Kitchens began operating its first commissary kitchen over two years ago in Redwood City, with the mission of empowering restaurant partners’ growth. With DoorDash Kitchens – now in North Hollywood and with a soon to be reopening Full Service kitchen in San Jose – restaurant partners can reach new customers and generate incremental revenue without committing to opening a costly new brick and mortar location.

DoorDash on Monday announced it is opening DoorDash Kitchens Brooklyn at Nimbus, a New York City-based shared kitchen, uniting five select local, regional, and national restaurants under one roof. The initial menu of restaurant partners from New York and beyond serving Brooklyn residents includes:

  • DOMODOMO – Available Starting Today
  • Kings Co Imperial – Available Starting Today
  • Pies ‘n’ Thighs – Available Starting Today
  • moonbowls – Coming Soon
  • Little Caesars – Coming Soon

Each of these restaurant partners brings a distinct menu to the delivery-forward food hall – a vegetarian customer can enjoy dishes from moonbowls, whereas a diner looking for a delicious Southern meal can enjoy a plate from Pies ‘n’ Thighs. In addition to the core restaurants, customers will also be able to enjoy beverages from Birch Coffee, pastries from Kado Patisri, and treats from Milk Bar to complement their experience all available now.

To celebrate the grand opening, customers can enjoy a limited-time promotion of 30 percent off their first pickup or delivery order from each of the core DoorDash Kitchens Brooklyn concepts from now until May 31, 2022 by entering a unique promotional code upon checkout.

“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,” says 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.”

“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.”

DoorDash Kitchens Brooklyn is located at 383 Bridge Street and customers in Dumbo, Park Slope, Cobble Hill, Fort Greene, Brooklyn Heights, Gowanus, Clinton Hill, and Prospect Heights will now be able to enjoy delivery from these unique restaurants (anyone in the area can place an order for pickup), many of which are expanding to Brooklyn for the first time. While specific restaurant hours will vary, dine-in at DoorDash Kitchens Brooklyn is available from 7:00am-10:00pm, with takeout only available late night from 10:00-11:00pm.

“We take pride in providing diners with fresh, delicious sushi whether they’re dining in or ordering to-go,” says Chef Brian, Executive Chef and Co-Founder of DOMODOMO. “Partnering with DoorDash Kitchens is enabling us to meet customer demand in Brooklyn without fully committing to a second brick and mortar location.”

“Our Williamsburg location is just a few miles away from the new DoorDash Kitchens location, yet this new location will make our food even more accessible to our customers,” adds Josh Grinker, Chef and Co-Owner of Kings Co Imperial. “We’re excited about partnering with DoorDash Kitchens Brooklyn, as this is a natural extension of our existing partnership and helps us get our food to our loyal customers faster, hotter, and better.”

“DoorDash Kitchens in Downtown Brooklyn will not only bring new restaurants to the neighborhood but offer an exciting new gathering place and create good local jobs for the community,” says Regina Myer, president of Downtown Brooklyn Partnership. “We hope the neighborhood will join us in welcoming this innovative new space to Downtown Brooklyn.”
