Welcome to Stay'd. We’re glad you’re here. We’re new in town, so we thought we’d take a moment to say hello and tell you a bit about us before you invite us - or, rather, our delicious food - into your home.
We are a delivery and take-out restaurant, based in both downtown St. Paul and in the West End district of Minneapolis, and proudly serve the surrounding neighborhoods. Stay’d is on a mission to elevate the food delivery experience with a hospitality-first approach. You will notice it in our menu quality, thoughtful packaging, and personal touches like handwritten cards from our chefs.
We know you have a lot on your plate, and we’re here to make healthy eating easier by bringing scratch-made comfort food straight to your door. Because you have more important things to do, like spending time with family.
You know that quirky neighbor or co-worker who likes to fill awkward silences by suggesting everyone plays a game? That’s us. We’ll go first by telling you about the four words that best describe us. We’d love to hear yours, but totally get if you’d prefer to refill the wine glasses.

STAY'D IS: FUN
We believe good food brings out the best in all of us. We do the hard work and deliver fresh eats to your front door, so you can simply enjoy great food and the wonderful people you’re enjoying it with. (No more stressing out over a hot stove!)
At Stay’d, we believe that food is more than just sustenance. If you think about some of your fondest memories with loved ones, they most likely revolve around food: chicken wings during football games; ice cream cakes for your birthday; or Sunday supper with the family.
Food brings a sense of joy and fun to our lives. We laugh, hug, celebrate, and high-five with full mouths and even fuller hearts. Stay’d chefs take your favorite feel-good classics - from mac & cheese to savory meatloaf - and revive them with fresh ingredients and creative preparations. Ready to dig in?
STAY'D IS: IMAGINATIVE
We all have to eat, but meal planning day after day and week after week can be exhausting. It’s time to make dinner enjoyable again!
Bored with the same bland chicken dinner or boxed pasta? May we suggest wood-fired chicken dressed in a lemon-garlic rub and cooked to a golden, crispy finish with a hint of smokiness from the grill? Or perhaps you’re in the mood for salmon cured with an aromatic, house-made gin marinade (yes, we said gin), finished in the wood fire and topped with zingy preserved lemon.
That’s how Stay’d thinks about food. We’re not fancy or highbrow, but by design, we are different in ways that matter. We take the familiar and make it new through creative cooking techniques and unique flavors.
Stay’d provides the comfort of a home-cooked meal but elevates it thanks to the expertise—and expert palates—of our professional chefs. And then we package it with purpose in sustainable containers (no more knotted plastic bags and Styrofoam please!).
Even better: You get to choose from a wide variety of meal options, so everyone sitting down at the table gets exactly what they want...with no extra dishes for you.
STAY'D IS: NURTURING
Stay’d was born out of the desire to serve others. Many of us enjoy cooking at home and bonding over meals. There is something to be said about a family meal together around the table or friends gathered around the kitchen island. It brings a sense of comfort and nostalgia; it is a time to connect and enjoy each other’s company without any other distractions.
Unfortunately, reality often gets in the way. Between your busy career, active household, everyday errands, and other commitments, you may feel stretched to your limit. Instead of compromising your time or your health, let Stay’d step in to help.
At Stay’d, we nourish physical, emotional, and practical needs by removing the inherent barriers and burdens of home cooking - the time and energy, the shopping, and the culinary know-how. We find fulfillment by taking care of others, just like you. We want to take the stress out of figuring out what’s for dinner.
Let us embrace our Midwest roots and do the neighborly thing by handling the cooking tonight or for your next dinner event. Our wholesome, homestyle cooking won’t disappoint.
STAY'D IS: FREEING
Stay’d was created to help you break free from your routine. Life gets chaotic, and important moments are lost in the commotion of daily life. Stay’d gifts you convenience so you can focus on what truly matters.
Dinner isn’t always a priority when you’re trying to get the kids ready for school, prep for a Zoom meeting with your boss, clean the house, get the bills paid, and finally get to that about-to-topple-over pile of laundry.
It’s OK to give your kitchen — and yourself — the night off. Instead, spend that precious time with your loved ones or just decompress on the couch...you deserve it!
Whether you desire a cozy date night in, a memorable dinner with friends, or a lively family game night, Stay’d brings the food to fuel your fun and frees you up to simply enjoy it. From our kitchen to yours, happy eating.
