    Sorry to hear you are ill, smoke. Sarge's makes an excellent chicken soup with noodles and matzoh balls. They have grilled cheese on the menu, but I've never tried it. (For me, it's all about the superb pastrami.) They deliver all over Manhattan 24/7, and I've found them to be very reliable.


    Feel better soon!

      I second RGR's recommendation for Sarge's. They call it "Super Soup". Sarge's delivers up to me, and I live on 86th St. and First Ave. Their pastrami sandwich is the best in NYC! (when you feel better).

      Pastrami Queen has excellent matzoh ball soup. You can order online through SeamlessWeb.

        Won Ton Soup works for me when I have a cold and can not get chicken soup.
        Call Szechuan Kitchen at 79th and First.

        Grilled cheeses almost always are delivered on the cooler side.
        Best to have your local deli deliver the bread + butter + cheese and make yr own.

        Feel better

          Hi, I usually get Kar Won when I'm sick - their roast pork noodle soup is $5 and very tasty. They may now have a minimum for delivery, but still worth it. Please report on what you end up getting - I live in your area and could always use suggestions.

            PJ Bernstein has the best chicken soup I've ever had. You can get it just broth, broth and noodles, with chicken, vegetables, etc. And they deliver.
