Garces Trading Company will officially make a grand return and debut this week as a brand-new, advanced ghost kitchen, restaurant hub and online marketplace. Fans of Chef Jose Garces will be able to order, for the first time ever, their favorite dishes from iconic restaurant brands such as Amada, The Olde Bar and Village Whiskey—all in one order and from one location for pick-up, take-out and delivery.
When indoor dining shut down city restaurants this past week, Garces has consolidated all restaurant kitchens into one giant ghost kitchen and hub that will now operate out of The Olde Bar in Old City District. Patrons will be able to order, with one click of a button, their Garces favorites like The Olde Bar’s Crab Cake, Jeff’s Fried Chicken, and Crab and Corn Chowder; Amada’s Pulpo a la Gallega, Albondigas and Jamon Serrano; and Village Whiskey’s Village Burger, Baby Back Ribs, Golden Hot Wings and the new Bing Crosby Burger of the Month.
Additionally, the new online marketplace will allow consumers to order cocktails, cocktail kits and beer to-go from The Olde Bar. Garces Trading Company also comes back with a massive robust selection of occasion family meals to go, online catering options smartly priced and designed for your current household (two or more), and an assortment of Garces pastries and baked goods only available before in the various restaurants.
Dishes from Volver and J. G. Domestic are also making a reappearance – and look for other dishes from other iconic Garces restaurants to be added in the near future. The new marketplace also introduces new experiences – where patrons and their families can dine with a Zoom from Chef Jose Garces himself, make a Gingerbread House with Garces’ Pastry Chef, or enjoy Garces Cookies with Santa – with other experiences on the way.

“We are excited to give new life to our beloved brand, Garces Trading Company,” says Chef Jose Garces. “We started catering out of GTC back in 2010, which grew into our full-service catering and events division, Garces Events. It’s fitting that our guests can now order their favorites from our restaurants and try our new heat and serve packages created out of this new massive ghost kitchen and restaurant hub. Just because indoor dining has caused a major impact on the city’s restaurants, we wanted to continue to bring our customers their favorite dishes and continue to operate as many brands as we could during this delicate time.”
Garces adds, “We wanted a solution for our guests that was thoughtful and sustainable. We saw heaters as a limited time option, as at some point it’ll be too cold to sit outside. Creating unique dining experiences that make being at home, or any location post-COVID, more fun and enjoyable. While we do have a delivery partner to supplement busy times, but we are able to service guests who may not feel comfortable coming to the city and create employment opportunities.
