Quality - No Compromise

With today’s busy schedules we all need convenience and we all crave quality. Dinner Thyme provides both. Take our Bell & Evans chicken. It’s air chilled, all natural, hormone and antibiotics free, raised on an all-vegetable diet and every chicken is traceable to the farm. This level of quality costs more, but once you taste it, you’ll know it’s worth it. Dinner Thyme Blue ApronDinner Thyme
Fresh Ingredients - It's An Obsession Of Ours

We’re obsessed with freshness because we know you are. Since our founding in 2010, we’ve been serving only the freshest products. Our chefs personally visit the wholesale markets and buy only the freshest ingredients. We buy products whole and cut our own meats, fish, poultry and vegetables by hand. Although time consuming, sourcing our ingredients this way ensures that you receive the freshest products possible!

About Us

Dinner Thyme is a better answer to the daily question – “What’s for dinner?” Our members enjoy variety, convenience and a better overall experience when it comes to preparing and enjoying dinner. It’s a combination of personalized service, high quality, fresh ingredients and the convenience of having a highly trained chef partially prepare your meals. The chef's preparation is enough to make dinner quick and easy while still leaving you with the fun, self-satisfying part of cooking the meal. Dinner Thyme Blue Apron

Richard (Rick) Fay - Founder / Owner
Dinner Thyme was born from my desire to make quality, home cooked, weeknight dinners without the time consuming "shopping" or "chopping". As a graduate of Johnson and Wales University with a degree in culinary arts and a twenty-year career as owner and operator of several eateries, knowing how to prepare a meal was not the issue. The problem was that preparing a home cooked meal with fresh, high quality ingredients during the week involved more time than I generally had.

Necessity is truly the mother of invention.  In July of 2010, determined to make the process of creating a quality, home cooked, weeknight meal easier, I launched Clear Cut Meals - the original prepped meal delivery service - to serve the Upper East Side of Manhattan.  After four years, thousands of members and rave reviews, the demand for Clear Cut Meals outside our service area grew too loud for me to ignore.  We launched Dinner Thyme in 2014 to give the people in these areas what they demanded - a better solution to quick, quality dinners.

How It Works

What's For Dinner? - The Choice Is Yours
Each week we feature over 50 different menu items. There's something for everyone. Create your meals by mixing and matching entrees, side items and even desserts. If you’re one of our Monthly Members, we’ll get you started each week by emailing you our Weekly Suggested Menu which will be customized to fit your preferences. And since we are all about giving you options, you can change the menu as much as you want, including creating your own menu or skipping the week entirely. Just let us know your preferences before Sunday night at 9pm. Yes, it’s truly just that easy.

Our Chefs Go To Work
The day before your delivery, we gather the fresh ingredients that are needed for your meals. We do all the time consuming preparation – chopping, whisking, marinating, blending, etc. You’re going to really appreciate our efforts when it’s dinner time because your job will be quick and easy while still leaving you with the fun, self-satisfying part that comes with dinner preparation.

Our Delivery Team Hits The Road
On your preferred delivery day, a member of our delivery team will swing by your home between 10am and 6pm with your order. As long as you have a safe place for us to leave your order, you do not need to be home for delivery. Rest assured, our refrigerated delivery box will keep your items fresh and chilly until at least 9pm.

It's Dinner Thyme!
Now this is where things get good!  When it’s time for dinner, simply remove one of your meals from your refrigerator and start cooking.  Since our chefs have done all of the leg work for you, dinner will be on the table quick and easy; usually in about 15 minutes. Does all of this sound too good to be true?  Great, because that is exactly the kind of service we strive to deliver.


Listen To What Your Neighbors Are Saying

THANK YOU!! We are first time orderers today, and we just finished our meal. We were hooked on the first bite. Everything was so fresh, instructions were so detailed and easy to follow, and we could not stop eating all the food! (so much for leftovers tomorrow!) It is so nice to finally be able to cook a full meal (with a lot of help) and not spend a fortune in the grocery store in Manhattan. Im so glad that we finally tried you guys, and it was well worth it. You have found some permanent customers!! - Bridgette

I LOVE your meals! My favorites are the ones that would require me to slice and dice for ever in order to get a meal like yours from store to table. My favorites this time of year include the curry and the jambalaya. They are both awesome and taste like I've been working all day to make them...at least that's what my husband thinks I've done! - Jill

As a busy mom to 3 kids, I AM SO GRATEFUL for your entire team! My family now eats healthy, nutritious meals and my 11 year old is even learning how to cook. Take out menus are a thing of the past! LOVE YOU GUYS! - Ali

Love the concept. Great Website! I was walking by your location and picked up your postcard. Your menu is great. I have been trying meals every day this week that I would not have been prepared to cook at home after work. The portion size is great. I have been singing your praises all week. - Lenore

This is the greatest service. I can't tell you how much you have saved me. Faster then ordering in, 10X better tasting and 100X better for you. Thank's guys - keep up the good work! - Michael

I must say that I was really impressed from my very first order! All of the ingredients for these delicious entrée dishes are organized by specific colors and numbers, so you prepare it perfectly every time! By the way, I considered moving recently, but because I love these meals so much, I just renewed my apartment lease and plan to stay on the Upper East Side primarily for you guys! - Craig

Excellent concept. My meal was delicious and easy to prepare. You've taken out the part of cooking I don't like -- the prep and having all the ingredients on hand -- and kept in enough of the cooking for me to do that I felt like I really made my meal myself. Thanks! - Lisa

You guys rock - I took your advice and made dinner for my girlfriend and chose the Beef with Bordelaise Sauce...delicious. She loved it and as a beef fan, I was definitely impressed, not only with the quality but the ease of preparation with the included instructions. Thanks again. - Dan

I loved everything about our meal. The website is super easy and user friendly. The recipes were simple. My favorite part of your service is that the ingredients are perfectly prepped and portioned. - Karen

Are you kidding me! This is a great service. The quality is outstanding and it saves me hours per week. Love it! - Rachel

I hate cooking. I never imagined I'd have linguine with clam sauce anywhere other than a restaurant. This was so easy to cook and so delicious to eat! I highly recommend this dish;-) - Joan

A miracle! A true miracle! I can't say enough great things about you and this wonderful concept - it's changed my whole attitude towards dinner! Besides the first-rate quality of the ingredients, the great presentation and the actual fun of putting it together, portion control (and the portions are generous!) is yet another part of the miracle! Having watched my weight and salt intake my whole life, it has been hard for me to buy prepared food - and I have started to resent all the shopping/cooking. Now I can order your delicious meals, control the amount of seasoning, and have portion control I never have when I do all the shopping. And all dieters know that if you fail to plan you plan to fail. I can chose my menu for several days and stick to my delicious program. Rick, you are my miracle man! Bravo and thank you! - Denise
