My wife is expecting a baby in the middle of September and in preparation, at the behest of one of the bazillions of baby books/magazines/blogs/monographs/pamphlets/coded messages we've been reading, we're trying to gather up delivery menus for that time in the near future when we don't feel like cooking or venturing outside. And we realized, we only know of a couple of delivery options in Andersonville. Besides the pizza places we know there's Francesca's for Italian and Noodle Zone for noodles, but what are the really good places that deliver in the area? I don't think we'll be too picky about cuisine, we're just more interested in the best places that deliver in that neck of the woods.
Reza's and Andy's deliver and of course Chicago Pizza til 5am. Personally, I prefer it to Renalli's.
For really good Japanese comfort food try Sunshine cafe just south of the Jewel on Clark...no delivery but it's worth the trip.
Also pick up some ultru fresh ready made middleastern eats at Middleastern Grocery on Foster just west of Clark street.
We were in your boat around this time last year, and I do have some delivery suggestions, but I was wondering if you would consider pre-prepared meals? We actually looked into this service where someone makes tons of meals for you, packages them up, and either freezes them or has some ready to be eaten. Actually, quite a number of private chefs offer these kinds of "new parents packages."
A few of our favorites:
- Chen's (on Clark) for Chinese
- Caro Mio (on Wilson) for Italian
- Potbellies + Jimmy John's for sandwiches
- Leona's for burgers
Best of luck to you!
We live in Andersonville and have worked hard to find the best delivery places. Young's Chinese is the best Chinese I've had in the city. They have a website and really quick delivery. Mention a "coupon" and you get free chicken fried rice with any order over $25.
If you like Indian food, Essence of India in Lincoln Square delivers some delicious grub.
Apart pizza, which is also in Lincoln Square but soon opening a store in Edgewater, is some of the best brick-oven pizza I have ever, ever had.
And, Philly's Best provides great grinders and cheesesteaks!
Good luck with the little one!
