Best eats on Goldbelly for 2024

Shake Shack

Shake Shack's burgers have reached cult status and if you've had one -- or three -- you'll know why. For the first time ever, Shake Shack's beloved ShackBurger is available outside of Shake Shack locations.  

The kit lets you craft your own burger from start to finish, replete with 100% Angus beef from Pat LaFrieda, American cheese, a bowl of the top-secret ShackSauce and a bounty of Martin's potato rolls. All you'll need to bring is lettuce, tomato and a grill. It's a perfect gift for any grill masters on your Father's Day, Mother's Day or graduate gifting list.

Goldbelly

Nabbing a reservation at Cochon Butcher in New Orleans is as difficult as finding your hotel in the French Quarter after finishing a frozen Hurricane (trust me), but getting some of its famous cured meats is as easy as a few clicks via Goldbelly. This feast 12 to 14 people with chaurice, boudin, smoked sausage, pork chops and jambalaya stuffed chicken.

Goldbelly

Lines tend to spill out of Ess-A-Bagel's Midtown location, but you can get a personal shipment of fresh bagels without even having to leave your house. Right now, you can purchase a baker's dozen and get a second dozen free. Choose from a variety of flavors, like onion, garlic, salt, everything and cinnamon raisin, then finish them off with a big schmear of cream cheese (which can also be added to your Ess-A-Bagel delivery). 

Goldbelly

Buy four Philly cheesesteaks and get another four free from Pat's King of Steaks -- the self-proclaimed inventor of the cheesesteak -- which is often regarded as one of the best cheesesteak shops in Philadelphia. Hunks of bread are stuffed with thinly cut steak, onions and your choice of cheese (choose between Whiz, American or provolone). These arrive frozen, so all you'll have to do is toss them in the oven.

Goldbelly

This beloved doughnut shop, which got its start in Los Angeles before opening a second location in Chicago, fries up a wide selection of whimsical doughnuts, like lemon pistachio old fashioned and birthday cake dotted with sprinkles. This shipment will include 12 of Stan's best sellers.

Goldbelly

Brunch certainly may not feel the same anymore, but things can start to find a semblance of normalcy thanks to a New York-centric shipment of Russ & Daughters' brunch staples. The New York appetizing institution packs the finest selection of nova, hand-rolled bagels, cream cheese, chocolate babka and private blend coffee to help you throw your own brunch party. Plus, the package also includes a ceramic tumbler to sip coffee in on the go.

Goldbelly

Raffeto's Pasta has been a SoHo institution since 1906, slinging fresh pasta and other Italian accoutrements. So if you're tired of the boxed stuff, let Raffetto's deliver fresh ravioli and sauce to your door. Just select which kind of pasta you want (choose from options like roasted red pepper and pumpkin), then select an accompanying sauce like sage butter or Bolognese. Along with the pasta and sauce, you'll get some Genoa crostini toast and a portion of rice pudding.

Goldbelly

Dreaming of Chicago's best deep-dish pizzas? Luckily Lou Malnati can ship you these behemoth pies, complete with your choice of cheese, sausage, pepperoni or spinach. The pizzas arrive frozen, ready to be stored away until pizza night or simply placed in the oven until warm and gooey.

Goldbelly

San Francisco's beloved Humphry Slocombe is often listed as one of the best ice cream shops in the country, known for its eccentric flavors and wonderfully creamy consistency. I've had it myself and it's totally worthy of the hype. Ice cream lovers can select six of their favorite flavors, choosing from options like Blue Bottle Vietnamese coffee, black sesame, strawberry blondie and malted milk chocolate.

Goldbelly

I thought I'd tasted it all when it came to pizza until Emmy Squared opened in my Brooklyn neighborhood. Detroit-style pizza is somewhere between grandma's and Chicago deep dish but, however you classify it, these pies are dang delicious and you can have them sent straight to you -- or someone you need a tasty gift for. 

My vote goes to this three-pack of Emmy's best square pies. All you do is heat them in the oven, serve and try not to faint from the deliciousness. 

Goldbelly

It's Ina's coconut cake. What more do you need to know?
