One of the best things about working in Manhattan is the availability of, and wide variety of, food. In fact, one of the only reasons that I would ever seriously consider moving back onto the island is to have the density of restaurants once again available to us – we’re getting kinda sick of our local spots, which are predominantly Latino plus our standby middle eastern place, Ya Hala.
A year or two ago a cool new delivery service started up in Manhattan, SeamlessWeb. This has revolutionized our office lunchtimes – there are currently 265 (!!!) restaurants that deliver lunch to our office at 36th and 6th. Lunch has always been a fairly communal, collaborative effort in the office (we like to order together and often will defer to whomever has the strongest point of view on what they want to eat on any given day), but Seamless has completely blown the doors off of our lunching options.
They just opened up a bunch of new cities, including Chicago and LA; wonder if they’ll deliver to my brother and the Queen of Paint? Sarah and Dad, if you’re reading this, expect an invite from me shortly. I think they’ll give me a coupon if you join and use it.
