dinner/grocery delivery ideas in charlottesville -- please help!
a dear friend of mine lives in charlottesville and is unable to cook right now because of a family illness/crisis. can anyone recommend good places to have food delivered to her? she lives on mulberry avenue. i looked online but it seems that grocery delivery places like fresh direct don't deliver to charlottesville. she expressed interest in a place called ariana grill kabob house, which i'm going to get for the first night, but then i would like to plan a few more... can anyone local offer any suggestions? thanks in advance!
Presumably your friend is cooking again (hope so!) - but if not, you can certainly identify delivery restaurants in Charlottesville by using Google and typing in "Charlottesville restaurant delivery". It shouldn't take you more than 10 minutes or so to find all of the delivery places, but your universe will be pretty limited - pizza, burgers, sushi, chinese - and none of it is particularly noteworthy.
There is also an online grocery delivery similar to Fresh Direct - called Retail Relay - which will deliver to homes or provide pickup service. They source items from dozens of local retailers, including Whole Foods, and are extremely service oriented. You can find Relay on line at www.relayfoods.com.
Food of All Nations has tons of products via www.relayfoods.com. I don't know that they themselves deliver, only through other services.
For meal delivery, there's a lot of other services being that this is a major college town. http://www.campusfood.com , http://hungryhoo.com/ are two such options for a "catch all" website. Otherwise the earlier suggestion of googling individual locations is certainly effective.
She seems to be close to the university, so campusfood.com might work for her. Basil, Jimmy John's and Pizza Hut also deliver, but aren't on there I don't think. Campusfood is cool because you can get coupon's on occasion, as well.
