LAKE PLACID — The Good Bite Kitchen recently moved from its former location at 2501 Main St., next to Little Blue House, where owner Kayte Billerman operated the business for 10 years.

The Good Bite is now in the space formerly occupied by the Kreature Butcher Shop at 6115 Sentinel Road, Suite 1.

With the move last month, Billerman’s focus has shifted from making meal kits to preparing “heat-and-eat” meals that people can take home and heat up for a fresh, “vegetable-forward” dinner.

Billerman founded The Good Bite in 2012 after receiving a vegan culinary education. She started out making vegetarian lunches before shifting to meal kits in 2018.

The meal kit program was especially handy when the coronavirus pandemic hit in 2020, Billerman said, because she could drop the kits off outside people’s homes at a time when people were avoiding going to the grocery store.

Billerman’s new heat-and-eats are friendly to both carnivores and vegetarians, and she supports other local businesses by sourcing her ingredients from farms like Harmony Hills Farmstead in West Monroe and Asgaard Farm and Dairy in AuSable Forks. The Good Bite is also working to reduce waste by offering locals reusable containers for their meals.

The Good Bite is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, though Billerman said she’s working on an establishing outdoor pickup station where people could grab their meals after hours. People can stay tuned at thegoodbitekitchen.com.
