High-end Food Delivery Downtown for New Parents?

o

Hi. I have friends way downtown with a new baby, and would love to get them either a gift certificate to a nice resto with delivery, or some sort of catered dinner delivered. They live in the financial district, so the restaurant pickings around there are slim. I've already tried some Tribeca places (Landmarc, Locanda Verde) but they won't deliver that far. Any ideas of restaurants that will go down there? Or is there some sort of meal delivery place/catering outfit that will do the trick ?

Any ideas much appreciated!!

    Have you looked on Seamless web or delivery.com? There are usually a few "real" restaurants (non-takeout places) that are on there. Its at least a good place to start

      There's a handful of places on Seamless, but nothing that looks amazing. I know my friends live near Delmonico's, but have had poor experiences there. So I'm looking for something else. A personal chef for a night could work too, if anyone has recommendations.

      Are you looking Tribeca specifically?

      I have a feeling if you go in person, and explain to them what you're looking for, they might make an exception.
