Suppose you just want dinner, instead of making your own or opening a delivered collection of premeasured components. Enter Ipsa Provisions, a frozen food company from Micah Fredman, a chef who worked at several restaurants, including Gramercy Tavern, and Joshua Brau, who was at Chipotle and Blue Apron. Among the company’s mostly uncommon offerings — sold online without subscription for delivery in Manhattan and Brooklyn — are a rich mushroom-filled chicken potpie, a brash Korean beef kimchi stew with chewy rice cakes, Moroccan braised chicken with vegetables and fruit, and a deeply caramelized fruit crumble. There’s also a first-rate ragù Bolognese. The main dishes, which serve two to three, are $21 to $25; there are vegetarian options. Defrosting overnight is recommended before reheating for some dishes, but there are some possible shortcuts, like submerging the container in warm water.
