Any recommendations for delivery to NY Downtown Hospital, post-partum?

Can anyone recommend a few Chinatown restaurants that will deliver to a patient at NY Downtown Hospital (on Gold between Beekman/Spruce). Thinking Vietnamese, dumplings, hand-pulled noodle soups, or pork buns?

I'm guessing most Chinatown restaurants would deliver to a hospital location, but if anyone has specific recommendations or experience, would love to hear them. I'm sure I'm going to be starving after delivering. Maybe it will be motivation for a speedy delivery! TIA.

  1. I do not know any restaurants specifically but have you tried doing a search on seamlessweb? They will tell you which places deliver in that area after typing in information and you can call ahead about delivery. If they've delivered to the hospital before, they will be familiar with the logistics of coordinating it.

    Also, it is likely the staff have ordered take out before in the neighborhood and will have suggestions for you. Your partner may have to meet them outside of the post partum unit/ labor and delivery by an entrance.

    Hope you enjoy the rest of your pregnancy and birth!
