Seamless Web
Working overtime? Order dinner for yourself and your officemates using this smart service, which counts 1,000 participating restaurants in New York City. The service has assembled similar-sized armies in nine other cities, including San Francisco, Houston and Stamford, Conn. The consumer side of the business — home delivery — is just getting started; for now, it's only available in Manhattan in New York City, but there are plans to roll it out elsewhere by year end. The ordering process is straightforward and thorough; menu selections allow you to be as specific as to request dressing on the side. You can submit special delivery instructions too, and put the tip on your credit card. Another helpful resource for New Yorkers: Menu Pages, a searchable database of restaurants that also lists them by cuisine and by neighborhood, posts reviews and ratings and provides menus formatted to print.
