The concept of virtual restaurants—restaurants with kitchens but without dining rooms, which exist solely as online delivery options—isn't a new one. The idea dates back as far as 2013, but it certainly hasn't been as widespread and popular until this year, when restaurants are using it as a way out of pandemic-related financial troubles.By some estimates, about 100,000 of these types of restaurants are currently in operation, with more being launched every day. Some of these digital brands, which usually exists solely on third-party delivery apps like Uber Eats and DoorDash, are either either tacked onto other existing kitchens of well-established restaurants, or make use of the growing trend of ghost kitchens—a kind of kitchen hub that may house operations for several different restaurant brands.So next time you get wings or pizza from your favorite delivery app, you may be ordering food from a well-known restaurant chain without even realizing the digital brand is operated by them, and the food is made in their kitchen (and often using their ingredients, too.)While a lot of these virtual brands seem to operate hyper-locally, we've pulled some of the biggest names in the virtual restaurant world with a wide array of locations.And for more, don't miss these 15 Classic American Desserts That Deserve a Comeback.1 Pasqually'sMaybe the loudest "outing" of a virtual brand operated by a known restaurant chain came when customers of Pasqually's learned they were basically ordering pizza from Chuck E. Cheese. The brand launched on GrubHub in March and later expanded to Uber Eats and Doordash, and they are currently operating from all Chuck E. Cheese locations. However, the company has said they are trying to appeal to a more grown-up palate with Pasqually's menu, and the pizzas are different than the ones you'd get at the kid-friendly chain. "Pasqually's pizza has more sauce. There's more robust flavor in the bite. It has a combination of cheddar and mozzarella cheese to punch up the flavor," said Chuck E. Cheese Entertainment CMO Sherri Landry.RELATED: Sign up for our newsletter to get daily restaurant news in your inbox!2 It's Just WingsAnother virtual restaurant using the kitchen of its bigger name siblings is It's Just Wings. You can now order craveable wings and deep-fried Oreos from this brand on Doordash, which are coming to you from more than 1,000 Chili's and Maggiano's kitchens.3 The Burger ExperienceCasual dining chain Smokey Bones has created a burger-only virtual brand, prompted by a high demand for burger delivery during the pandemic. The brand shares some menu items with Smokey Bones, but also serves some never-before-seen originals, like the Big Kahuna Burger with Hawaiian BBQ pork, pepper jack cheese, and grilled pineapple. They deliver in Chicago, New York, and Miami via Uber Eats. The company has also launched a similar concept in the wing arena with The Wing Concept.4 HotboxRapper Wiz Khalifa's first foray into the restaurant business is a virtual brand where stoner food meets Southern comfort. HotBox, which launches in October, will be serving things like Mac&Yellow, a mac and cheese named after his famous song, and Blazed Ends, which are burnt brisket ends smothered in BBQ sauce. It'll be available in Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, Denver, D.C, Indianapolis, Houston, and New York City.5 Krispy RiceMega-popular sushi restaurant Katsuya has turned one of its signature items—spicy tuna bites served atop a cube of crispy rice—into an entirely new virtual restaurant. The brand also offers fresh sushi, and appeals to a younger generation with health-forward substitutions, like using monk fruit instead of sugar. It's currently available in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Orange County, California, as well as Chicago, with imminent plans to expand to New York City and Miami.6 Neighborhood WingsApplebee's launched Neighborhood Wings by Applebee's in the spring, and this concept is available for order via GrubHub. Since wings are one of the most popular delivery items during the pandemic, the dine-in chain wanted to capitalize on the fact that they already make a pretty killer version. Unlike Pasqually's, which seems to be more secretive about its affiliation with Chuck E. Cheese, Neighborhood Wings mentions their parent company right in the name, so there's no chance for confusion.7 Cauliflower PizzaThis better-for-you pizza brand is another virtual restaurant that sprung up on all major delivery apps in Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, and soon in Columbus, Ohio. Operated by Hello Salted and using ghost kitchen facilities, Cauliflower Pizza is indulgence without the guilt, according to the brand. All their 14-inch pizzas are made with a gluten-free crust and the rest of the menu skews lean or vegan as well (hello, Vegan Buffalo Wings).And for more, check out these 108 most popular sodas ranked by how toxic they are.

It seems as impossible as jumping over 10 cars – can you enjoy this upcoming cold and flu season? A typical year of cold and flu is always challenging and impacts our most vulnerable populations, but 2020 already has health challenges like mask wearing, social distancing and more remote work. But there are choices you can make now that might make this season less challenging, more healthful and even set the standard for future joy in the winter.And, since I'm getting a lot of questions from patients (friends and family too) about ways they can navigate this unusual cold and flu season that is overshadowed by a pandemic, here's what I tell them. Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.1 Get a Flu Shot!I recommend that all of my patients get the quadrivalent flu shot and a special intense one if you are over the age of 65. Our immune systems decline in response to antigens as we get older so at age 65 we need more antigen. Do not get this at ages under 65 as you may react with a side effect of pain and fever. The under 65 quadrivalent flu vaccine stimulates your immune system with inactivated (not live) safe viral particles that protects you from 4 strains of the flu. It takes 10 to 14 days to get a rising concentration of antibody, which peaks at 5 to 8 weeks and then starts to decline. For this reason, the best time to get your vaccination is NOW (but, in any case do it by the end of October). This year you may need two – the second in late January, depending on the flu season.2 Don't Skip Out on SleepThe CDC warns that consistent sleep deprivation can lead to chronic illnesses, such as depression, obesity, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. Sleepiness can also cause mistakes at work, car crashes, and unpleasant mood swings. Sleep also refreshes the immune system and if you're sleep depleted, you're much more likely to get a viral infection. So, be sure you won't skip out on it—even if the newest season of Billions is irresistible. Most people need between 6-8 hours of sleep. If you have problems with getting as much try to avoid screens in bed and go to sleep and wake at similar times every day. You can also try 15 minutes of meditation — it helps.3 Eat Healthy Foods and Supplement ResponsiblyFood and supplements are a relationship, like marriage. You wouldn't marry someone who was trying to kill you, you shouldn't eat food that does. Only eat foods you love and that love your body and brain back.If you have a slight deficiency in vitamin D, you may be more susceptible to contracting influenza according to a study published in the BMJ. Curcumin is another nutrient that supports health and might have anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. Bovine colostrum has data that suggests it decreases upper respiratory infections in athletes so I am recommending colostrum supplements this cold and flu season. Chicken soup and vitamin C (200 mg at the start and for only four days) may decrease the duration by about 50 percent of common respiratory infections that might be confused with or predispose you to other viruses. I take and advise my patients to take 2,000 units of vitamin D-3 daily to avoid vitamin D deficiency until a doctor measures the amount patients have in their blood (I aim for 35 to 80 ng/ml).RELATED: I'm a Doctor and This Vitamin May Reduce Your COVID Risk4 Don't Be Afraid of GarlicAnother nutrient to consider in your diet for your immune system is garlic! It's not just for slaying vampires anymore. Garlic has been used to fight off infectious diseases for centuries and recent studies support the effects of garlic and its extracts in a wide range of applications. Garlic is also effective against numerous types of bacteria including salmonella, E. coli, and helicobacter. Most importantly: garlic is easy to add to your food. I always advise people to speak with their primary care provider before starting a supplement program to compare their vitamins and supplements against the prescription medications they might be taking for any interactions. One personalized program that offers this feature is Persona Nutrition (Full disclosure: I am an advisor to them, so am biased).5 Manage Chronic StressEmbrace moderate short-term stress. A study published in Immunologic Research found that short-term stress can enhance the expression of immunoprotective responses. It means that anti-infection agents can be increased with short-term stress. In contrast, chronic stress can suppress protective immune response. Turn to intentionally breathing exercises.6 Exercise as You Usually, But Don't Overdo ItSupport your immunity by finding just the right balance of exercise — the key is not to overdo it as exercise for more than two hours in a row can make you more vulnerable to most viral illnesses. Runners have a three-fold increase in colds and flu in the three weeks after completing a marathon.7 Cover, Wash, RepeatAlways wear your face mask and decontaminate it daily. Be sure to wash your hands before and after eating. It's better to use antibacterial soap instead of gel hand sanitizers. However, if you don't have the option for soap and water, you should use what you have available.RELATED: I'm an Infectious Disease Doctor and Would Never Touch This 8 Clean Your Mask ProperlyClean your cloth or surgical facemask regularly. An easy way to decontaminate is to spray it with hydrogen peroxide and let it sit for several hours until it dries. I do not recommend spraying the mask with a disinfectant as prolonged exposure of residue buildup on your skin can be harmful. The vapors may be irritating. If you can get it, get a true N-95 mask—it is much more protective for others and for you, too. You can clean those by heating at 165 degrees for 20 minutes. 9 Final Word From the DoctorI can't stress this enough: Please get your flu shot. In my 40 years of medical experience, there hasn't been a year that I didn't recommend my patients get the flu vaccine. It's very important this year and you can get it while social distancing – in a tent, outside, with a mask on. In the coming weeks, there will be a new swab test if you suspect you have RSV, flu (A/B) or COVID-19.

The famed corporate raider is dumping everything from billion-dollar companies to rare works of art.
Over the summer, many people opted to eat out, relying on alfresco dining to stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, as temperatures continue to drop in most of the country, outdoor dining will become increasingly difficult if not altogether impossible. So, should you enjoy a meal in the comfort of a restaurant? During an interview on Tuesday with the American Lung Association's podcast Lungcast, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's leading coronavirus expert, warned that if you do, you could be putting your health at risk. Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. "There Is Some Degree of Aerosol Transmission"Albert Rizzo, MD, Chief Medical Officer of the American Lung Association, asked Dr. Fauci about the recent controversy involving the CDC declaring COVID-19 airborne, then quickly retracting their statement. While the key member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force admitted that he too was confused by the move, he did confirm that the virus does spread via the air. "I just know that it is likely that there is some degree of aerosol transmission," he stated. "I don't know, to what extent it's responsible for transmissions. Maybe it accounts for 5%, 10%, 20%. I don't know, but I would be surprised if there was no aerosol in the transmission."RELATED: COVID Mistakes You Should Never Make Beware Of Indoor Dining He then brought up a study published in July on the CDC's website, involving respiratory droplets being spread through a restaurant via air conditioning, infecting various families sitting well beyond six feet from one another. "We know from circumstances like the very now well-known episode in a Chinese restaurant in China, in which people who were in a restaurant on the other side and never came into any contact with the person were having dinner, they got infected," he pointed out."Which means that the circulation of the air conditioner was probably recirculating something that stayed in the air for more than two seconds, because a few people got affected in that restaurant that weren't anywhere near the index case, who was infected."In a recent Instagram Live conversation with HIV/AIDS-LGBTQ+ activist Peter Staley, Dr. Fauci suggested that restaurants should keep their windows open at all times. "I think anything that has airflow out, not airflow in the room," he said about how a restaurant could safely operate indoor dining. RELATED: I'm an Infectious Disease Doctor and Would Never Touch This How to Avoid COVID-19 As for yourself, think twice before entering a room or restaurant with poor ventilation, and do everything you can to prevent getting—and spreading—COVID-19 in the first place: Wear your face mask, get tested if you think you have coronavirus, avoid crowds (and bars, and house parties), practice social distancing, only run essential errands, wash your hands regularly, disinfect frequently touched surfaces, and to get through this pandemic at your healthiest, don't miss these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.
