If you live in New York City and haven’t yet ordered some tasty grub through Caviar, you’ve been missing out. Though it’s not exactly inexpensive, no other service makes the ordering process quite so enjoyable: After signing in, you can scroll through restaurants that will deliver to you and see individual photos of every available item on their menus. Because the company handles delivery themselves, the delivery zone is surprisingly vast, and their curated roster of restaurants is also really impressive, with some of the city’s hottest restaurants offering delivery exclusively through them. If you’re looking to order sesame chicken from the place down the block, look elsewhere; if you’re looking to order soup dumplings from that hot new spot in downtown Brooklyn, this is the place.
Within the past week, the company has rolled out a couple nice new perks: secret menu items available only through Caviar and late-night delivery. Here are some new secret menu items worth getting excited about:
The Monkey Bread Bacon PBJ from Quality Eats: Grilled Neuske’s bacon, peanut butter, and jalapeño jelly on fresh-baked monkey bread
