Delivery Options, BoCoCa.
having just moved, i need to restock my delivery options- i am now located off smith street.
which places are best for delivery? which places to avoid?
Welcome to the neighborhood. For Indian, I would go with Raga. There are plenty of options but they seem to be the most consistent. For Thai, my favorite is Em Thai. I know lots of people really like Joya, but I've never eaten there. I really like Chance. It's Chinese with a twist. But beware, it's not as cheap as most Chinese take-outs - it's a nice sit-down restaurant and the prices reflect that. Italian: I never order Italian for delivery because it's one of those things I prefer to cook myself or eat in a restaurant. But I think people here swear by Fragole. For Middle Eastern try Zaytoon's or Bedouin Tent. I think Zaytoon's is better. I can't think of one decent place for typical Chinese food. They are all mediocre or worse.
Now for pizza. I hope someone else responds, because I would love to find a good pizza delivery place and so far I've been disappointed. I'm talking about regular old pizza, not brick or coal oven - for that I'd go with Savoia or Lucali.

We had delivery from Sal's earlier this week and were pleasantly surprised. The pizza arrived warm -- almost hot -- with a crisp crust, nice thin layer of sauce, and fresh toppings. We're Lucali die-hards too (even on some of the pre-AC, pressure cooker days earlier this summer), but sometimes you just want delivery. For a delivery pie Sal's was perfectly serviceable. Word is that Layla Jones does a decent delivery pie, too, but they refused to deliver to us (in their delivery zone) the first time we called -- we have never called back.
