Delivery Food

A friend of mine in the LA area (around Silver Lake) recently broke her leg, and won't be able to get around very easily for a while.

I wanted to send her something to help her on the road to healing, and food leapt to mind - she loves good food, but can't do much cooking or going out, at least for a few weeks.

While my first thought was ordering something from e.g. Williams-Sonoma, I thought it would be even better if I could find a delicatessen, foodie grocery store, or restaurant in the LA area that would deliver!

I'm thinking tasty, ready-made food (or mostly-ready-made), or maybe something along the cheese/pate lines. She likes most any food, as long as it's good - and delivery is the key here!

Any thoughts or favorites? Anything with an online menu would be especially helpful, but if there's some place I could call and they could fax me a menu, that would be great too!

Thank you all!

        I don't know Silver Lake all that well.. Sorry!

        1. You are a nice friend.

          I did a Citysearch for Delivery / 90026 (googled Silverlake zip code) and came up with this search:

          I don't know the area, but I hope this helps your friend.
