last minute, overnight shipping of NYC specialty?

i'd like to send a gift basket to a client in california for tomorrow morning. are there any recommended services for overnighting (dry-ice and all) specifically new york standards on such short notice? i'm thinking bagels... but pizza or deli fare might work.
a cursory search shows dean n' deluca (pricey!)... and then companies that claim to be new york bagels... but don't seem to have any affiliation with famous new york restaurants or shops. preferably a good amount of food for under $100 all in.
I would vote for Junior's cheesecakes. They are delish..and..only in NY. The overnight..hmm..might be a problem.
I shipped someone a basket from Zabar's recently and they loved it. It's pricey but real New York stuff, obviously- check the website for overnight options. Also, if they like cheese, Murray's Cheese does really well with overnight options (although it's not really a specfically New York thing, cheese).
