The experience of restaurant dining is easily replicated in the home, provided the recruitment of bow-tied canine waiters and an attentive Roomba vacuum to serve as busboy. Enjoy fine fare in familiar confines with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of restaurant takeout and delivery from Seamless, which features restaurants located throughout the Philadelphia area. Enter your address and zip code to find out which restaurants deliver to you. The full $20 value of this Groupon must be met in a single order.
Seamless allows busy cuisine cravers to plan and order meals from a vast array of local restaurants without wasting gas or risking a lost couch seat. With hundreds of local cuisine choices, ranging from the chicken with garlic spicy sauce ($7.50) at Jin House on Locust St. to Lovash’s succulent chicken tikka masala ($14.95) and the polysavory flavors of City Center East, Seamless offers more options than the choose-your-own-adventure version of Abe Lincoln's biography.
After placing their orders online or with one of a trio of smartphone applications, stay-at-home foodies can anticipate the moment their feast arrives in its own biodegradable bag. As all dining decrees are instantaneously transmitted in writing to your vittlesmith of choice, the risk of misinterpreted orders is gnawed to nearly nothing. While awaiting the sound of the doorbell or Pavlov's chimes, check out The Delivery Bag, Seamless' foodie blog featuring news on current currant events, local contests, and charity opportunities.
Though some restaurants charge an additional fee for delivery (and the Groupon is valid toward these), Seamless charges no fees to use its service. Some restaurants also post a delivery minimum that must be met to process an order.
