It is not often I will write about food delivery. I admit, it is probably something everyone would be interested in reading about (whether or not your favorite place delivers), but I don’t write about it because I never order delivery. I don’t believe in it. I am a staunch advocate of taking time to get out of the office for a little bit. You’re supposed to get a lunch break. You need a lunch break. Use your lunch break. (Even it’s just to walk around for 20 minutes.)
But like all rules, there are some exceptions. For example, when delivery is made to be fun! Like in the case of Chiyoda Sushi. Chiyoda is a place I’ve written about a few times. Along with Yagura & Cafe Zaiya, it makes up the Japanese Trinity on 41st btw. Mad+5th., my favorite block for Midtown Lunch’ing. Unfortunately it’s a little too far for me to make it down there too often- but last week, I discovered (thanks to an email tipster), that they have delivery- and it’s fun!
Chiyoda has a special online delivery menu that is really fun to look at, even if you don’t want to order. Each day they offer three different lunch boxes, and the schedule for the entire week is posted here (http://www.chiyodasushiny.com/bento_en.html). But it gets better. Not sure what one of the items is? Each morning, you can click on the box and it will show you a picture of the item. How cool is that?
The boxes range in price from $6 to $8 and there is no delivery charge, or tax- the only requirement is that your office orders a minimum of 3 boxes. Don’t have two friends who want to order weird Japanese boxed lunches… there is still one more way to get your bento fix- and it’s the best part of the whole story.
