Catering/Delivery for Overnight Event (Union Square)

Noodle fanatic Nov 8, 2011 01:30 PM

I'm hosting an event for around 100 people, and need to feed them breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, and a midnight snack. It's a 24-hour coding marathon/work session where software developers hack stuff and make apps. Pizza, sandwiches, and red bull are the norm at these types of events, but I want to make it cool and serve more interesting foods (or really delicious versions of said foods).

Which are the best catering/delivery spots around Union Square for...?
- Breakfast
- Falafels/hummus/pita
- Meatballs
- Pizza
- Sandwiches (not Subway)
- Salads
- Sushi
- Coffee/tea/pastries
- Beer/wine
- Late-night delivery (like 3 a.m.)

Other food ideas welcome!

So far, my colleagues have recommended:
- Rickshaw Dumpling
- Ennju Sushi
- Maoz

Thanks in advance!

    Hard to say without knowing exactly what side of Union Square you're on... if you're on the south side, I bet lots of East Village places would deliver to you.

    Breakfast - 'wichcraft but it's pricey, maybe Joe Jr.
    Pizza - Motorino, maybe? Otto
    Sandwiches - Num Pang, Defonte's, Bao Haus, Bite, 99 Miles to Philly, Baoguette
    Salads - maybe Northern Spy or Westville would deliver to you, Otto
    Sushi - hard to do this right for a large group, I'd avoid it, as it can be so pricey to get decent sushi, but do Kanoyama if you must
    Coffee/tea/pastries - Grey Dog on University
    Late-night delivery - Veselka?

    I'd also try to see if you're within range of:
    Grand Sichuan
    Zabb Elee
    Rhong Tiam Express

    Don't forget to check your address against Seamless and Delivery.com.

        What about a good plain NY slice? I'm struggling to find something...

        While I'm not sure about the other sushi options in the area, unfortunately, I ate at Ennju a few times when I worked in the area, and it wasn't very good.
