UES Delivery?

I'm looking for reasonably priced, not-too-bad food, delivered, near 88th and 3rd for a home-bound person. Or even good food, if there is such a thing that the impecunious can afford to have delivered. Any thoughts?

  1. Sarge's Deli (Third Ave. & E. 37 St.) delivers to the UES. Their food is excellent.

      Thank you. Sarge's is indeed lovely, but not really priced for folks on SSI.

    2. Is this prepared food or ready to eat food?

        I'm unable to ask her just this moment, but I think she meant hot food delivered, like Chinese and other Asian food, Italian food, Pizza, Burgers, BBQ, perhaps something more interesting. She cooks for herself. This would be for a treat, a self-reward, a weekend indulgence.

      2. There are tons of places near her like Roma Pizza on the corner of 88th and 3rd. However if I were to recommend one place it would be 3 Decker Coffee Shop on 2nd Ave and 91 St. They have an extensive menu, serve good comfort food and are very reasonably priced.

        3 Decker Restaurant
        1746 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10128

        Roma Pizza
        1568 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10128

          Oh, I don't know that place. Thank you, it sounds nice. And they deliver?

        2. We live in Park Slope in Brooklyn and our neighborhood is well served by three food delivery services (Grub Hub,, and Seamless), all of which deliver from local eateries. I suggest you try one or more of these sites and enter your address and see what kind of delivery options they offer for your neighborhood. You might find something you really like, and delivery doesn't cost you anything.

          Good luck...
