Need to find great food in Atlanta to deliver to sick friend - help with suggestions??
I am stuck up north in Canada while my dear friend battles cancer in Atlanta, and I need to find some way to help her out over the next several months. I was thinking of having comfort food sent to her from a local restaurant (soups, mac & cheese, lasagne, things that re-heat well if she isn't in the mood to eat when it arrives) every week or so.
I don't know any places in Atlanta, and soup, for example, can be such a tricky thing - sometimes it is almost an afterthought in some menus and isn't very good, or it can be fantastic.
Can anyone give me some reccomendations for a restaurant with a 'comfort food" type menu that delivers, and is reliable? The food has to be excellent to tempt an appetite going through chemo, nutritious, and not too spicy for an upset tummy. I need to send her some TLC long distance! I am also looking for a good bakery so occasional treats to send to her. Delivery and payment via credit card is key!
This sounds silly, but a place that is family owned where they really put love into their food would be ideal.
Thank you so much, I appreciate so much any help you can give me.
While I can't give any great suggestions, I do know that the area is changing almost daily so there may be new things out there. You can look/ask at Midtown restaurants or delivery services. That is the area of town where your friend lives.
While this is a nice idea, I just don't see how practical it can be. Food delivery is quite often a work week lunch time thing and is meant to be quick and tasty but not necessarily on top of the healthy scale.
Good luck, I think you'll need it.
With cancer and the treatments, it's hard to say what might or might not work on food. My Granny kind of lost all sense of taste with radiation and just wasted down so thin.
My idea is not a restaurant, so it may get moved or cut. But, you might look up some churches in the area and explain the situation. Most would probably not take pay but maybe a donation to the church - esp if a small church struggling as many are.
I could see this as a mini mission in this area anyway (but it is a small town). Just stop by with some small sized dishes and ones that would freeze. Say hi. Check up if anything else is needed. No push or pressure on anything.
A foodie family might also be an option. I'd do it, but I'm a long ways from Atlanta. There are a lot of good peeps out there though, and I can see someone making food or selecting various restaurant dishes to dop by for you friend.
Sounds like a very nice idea but what part of town is your friend in? That is going to make a huge difference in recommendations given the delivery piece of it. Places that jump to mind, although I am not certain that they would deliver:
