Wafels & Dinges Now Delivers via Seamless

Wafels & Dinges has started to offer delivery through Seamless. The waffles will be coming from either their Bryant Park or Herald Sqaure kiosks, so it shouldn’t take too long to get some warm waffles on your desk if you work on the west side. Check Seamless for their menu and delivery range. Has anybody tried the delivery yet? Are the waffles as good as at the actual locations?

UberEATS expands service up to 59th Street

So Uber waited all of two weeks to roll out UberEATS to the rest of Midtown. Since initial launch, they’ve been tweaking their food delivery service, lowering prices (below $10!), eliminating the delivery fee, etc. Apparently they’re comfortable enough to roll out to the rest of Midtown! They claim delivery fees will start next week, But note that the delivery fees are still absent from their initial launch areas, so lets hope delivery fees stay clear in their newly expanded territory. Who’s willing to take the bait? Would love to hear someone’s feedback on their promise of good food delivered under 10 minutes. As for me, I’m gonna take my full lunch hour outdoors until hurricane tropical storm season sets in.

Food to Eat Officially Launches Today w/ Freebies

Last summer we told you about Food To Eat, the new website that allows you to order pick up or delivery from some of Midtown’s busiest lunch spots, including food trucks and street carts.  Well apparently it’s been in beta all this time (who knew?) because today is their official launch date.  And to celebrate the launch, 24 participating food trucks, carts, and restaurants will be offering a little bit extra to customers that order lunch through the service.

Want to see the list of freebies?  We’ve got it for you, after the jump…

Korilla Now Offering Late Lunch/Dinner Delivery

Imagine it’s “one of those days” at the office. You look up and it’s way past lunchtime, and suddenly you realize that sound you keep hearing is your own tummy grumbling. Now what? Now you can order Korilla delivery. Details are thin at this point, but according to this you can email them after lunchtime rush to order delivery. They did clarify that deliveries are available only in midtown and lower, and that orders should be placed an hour in advance.

Crisp on Wheels has also been tweeting lately about delivery in Midtown, usually around where their truck is parked. Could this be the new model for food trucks in 2012? Only time will tell …

Win a $20 Seamless Gift Card

It’s been a big month for the online food delivery company formerly known as Seamless Web.  They dropped the “Web” from their name and recently opened up nominations for the “Craved Restaurant Awards”, to honor the best restaurants that deliver via Seamless… information we probably wouldn’t have passed along, if they hadn’t offered to give two of our readers $20 gift cards!  (The things we’ll do to get you people free food.)   All you have to do to enter to win one of the gift cards is post your favorite lunch spot to order delivery from. (Don’t believe in delivery?  Just post any random comment and you’ll still be entered to win… although, it would make us wonder why somebody who hates delivery would want to win $20 worth of delivery.)   Limit one entry per person, winners will be chosen at random next Monday, October 17th at 5pm EST.

“Food to Eat” Launches Delivery Service For Street Vendors

I just learned about a new website that launched last week called I had been noticing the stickers on some of the food carts in Midtown and yesterday I ran into the founder of the company. Turns out it’s a food ordering system for pickup and delivery, not too dissimilar from Seamless Web. But what makes this one very different (and even more exciting in my eyes) is that they also include food carts and trucks. Currently, there’s only a handful of carts signed up, but they’re some of the favorites with maddeningly long lines, including Biryani Cart, Kwik Meal, Kim’s Aunt Kitchen, and Uncle Gussy’s. Supposedly, the website will be expanding to include more of the gourmet trucks. The service is free to customers and there’s even an Iphone App available. I have yet to try it out, but if it will eventually allow me to get a burrito from Korilla BBQ without a 30 minute plus wait, sign me up. Has anybody checked it out yet? Please leave thoughts in the comments….

No 7 Sub Launching Delivery Tomorrow: According to Grub Street No 7 Sub (on B'way btw. 28+29th in the Ace Hotel) will begin offering delivery tomorrow.  But before you get too excited, the delivery area only extends north to 34th street (23rd is the southern boundary, 7th Ave. to the West and Park Ave. to the East) and it's only available from 2-5pm with a minimum order of $25.

$5 off of $10 order from Seamless Web: We here at Midtown Lunch advocate getting out of the office for lunch whenever possible, but with weather like this, ordering in might just be the best idea. According to RetailMeNot, delivery site Seamless Web has a coupon for $5 off orders of $10 or more for new users. If you've ordered from them before, track down someone in the office who hasn't. It's worth it just to avoid going outside.

What’s Your Favorite Delivery Option?

Ultraclay wasn’t the only ML contributor in print yesterday… This week’s New York Magazine has a guide to food delivery and two of our peoples were included in the issue.  Our Downtown guru Andrea gave her delivery recs for Crown Heights, and Amy covered 2nd Ave. in Midtown East (apparently the chow fun at Mee Noodle is great.)  Other Midtown tidbits of note?  Danyelle Freeman, aka Restaurant Girl, likes Wondee Siam, the roast pork at Tina’s Cuban, and the tempura udon at Ise (on 56th btw 5+6th Ave.)    Check out the entire list of delivery recs by neighborhood here, and let us know what your favorite Midtown delivery option is in the comments…

Chubby Chinese Girl Available for Delivery

If you’ve been wanting to try the Chubby Chinese Girl, Cer Te’s February sandwich of the month, but didn’t want to leave your desk they will now deliver it to you.  They originally wouldn’t deliver the sandwich because they couldn’t keep up with demand, and didn’t think it would hold up well… but now that things have settled down a bit it looks like they’re going to try. Welcome news considering the weather, and the fact that there’s only one week left before the sandwich goes away forever!
