|Samples from these establishments---yup, they got print too.|
|We guess a good choice for all-nighters|
Nothing brings out the snotty native New Yorker in us more than being in an urban environment that claims it's just as fabulous in every way as our hometown...
|Party Platters-or order for one|
BUT ONE PLUS: Our nation's capitol did have one advantage going for it... the ease of ordering take-out food from dozens of establishments), delivered
from one destination--- www.allmenus.com----that served as a clearing house, in a way...networking all those individual restaurants we never heard of---being new to the area...and making it easy to get the kind of food we wanted at the click of a keypad.
WELL---since then, allmenus.com has blown-up big...so we learned at a Big Apple event in the parent company-Dotmenu® headquarters.
Under real time screens highlighting who was logged one NOW...CEO Sloan Gaon (pictured above)---enthusiastically reeled off statistics as well as any Baseball Fantasy League fanatic that we know...on the high percentages of food delivered that originates from allmenus.com and its predecessor, the extremely popular www.campusfoods.com---that serves it up for those scholars (and area residents)- at 390 campuses.
In our undergrad days, we actually don't have any memory of eating food back then-it was all coffee all the time ha ha...but if we had that...we probably would---better wished we could have ordered from campusfoods.com...especially during the cold winter months.
No wonder colleges/universities like Syracuse and Cornell (and Ithaca College)---have ginormous numbers of students with an account with this url.
We actually went on the www.allmenus.com website---for NYC...it is set-up in an idiot proof way. With 700 restaurants to choose from---one can search by zip code, type of food, etc...quickly. And any minimums are right up front too...
ADDED plus: an iPhone app, over 250,00 menus online...
