    Default Dining In to the rescue!

    Junior Daughter and I were jonesing for clam-shack fried seafood tonight and
    it isn't easy to come by in the Back Bay. Dining In to the rescue! Jasper's
    Summer Shack is right up the street and we figured fried stuff would get
    here in pretty good shape.

    Such a feast! Clam chowder, fried Ipswich clams, skinny fried onion rings,
    chilled half lobster on a bed of sea salt, and Boston cream pie. And it all
    walked right through my front door!

    Anyone else a fan of Dining In?

    I have no idea what Dining In (capitalized) means, but we order in at
    twice a week on average. Dinner choices are limited to the
    restaurants in my area that deliver. We don't go into a restaurant
    and order take out (burritos excepted - but that's a taqueria). More
    restaurants in the area will do that rather than deliver.

    How unlucky for you that the house you inherited from your dead
    parents isn't in a a more cosmopolitan location. Maybe your married
    boyfriend can bring you some clam chowder next time he sneaks away
    from his wife to visit you for a little shack up.

    I used to love getting Chinese delivery from Majic Wok years ago when
    I lived on Westminster in the STL Central West End. Entree w/fried
    rice and 6 crab rangoon for around $11 or so! YUM! I had enough for
    leftovers the next day too! The delivery guy knew me as did the owner
    cause I used to walk down for their lunch buffet too.

    Meals on Wheels isn't the same thing as having restaurant food delivered.
    Tomorrow is my birthday but I'm not a senior citizen (yet) I think I'll
    marinate and grill a flank steak to celebrate the day.

    Oh, it's a remarkable operation. They work with hundreds of local
    restaurants to take orders, pick up from the restaurants and deliver the
    food to your door in insulated containers. I simply order from their website
    and then sit back with a glass of wine and wait for dinner to arrive. The
    advantage to me is ordering online from just one "clearing house".

    Looks interesting. Aside from fried foods that get soggy in closed
    containers, it is nice to be able to get a variety of foods from good
    restaurants. Probably never happen here. We just got pizza delivery about
    five years ago so I doubt the concepts will be profitable in our town.

    Is it safe to assume that "Dining In" is one of those companies that
    takes/picks up your orders from various restaurants and delivers the
    food to your door? If so, we have something similar over here - but it
    is (or was) a company called "Mr. Delivery". Used to use them sometimes
    when we lived in the city - but nobody delivers anything out here to
    the boonies <g> so we cannot take advantage of it anymore.

    I don't think there are many restaurants that deliver whose food is better
    than Meals On Wheels

    There's nothing preventing you from going to a restaurant of your choice,
    I'm positive there are many good ones within a reasonable distance to where
    you live. I'm sure all of those who live on your island don't only eat
    home... living as close to the sea as you I'm positive there are excellent
    seafood restuarants where you can have all the freshest lobster and clam
    chower you desire.

    It's similar to Waiters On Wheels which is local to me.

    Thanks Of course I can go out to eat. There are lots of restaurants
    here. Not sure they can make better food than I can, though

    I've only seen that once and it was a college student run operation.

    Oh, ok I know what you mean now. We have something similar - Waiters
    on Wheels. Not every restaurant subscribes to that service, so I've
    never used it. What is the minimum order for the restaurant you
    ordered from and their delivery service charge?

    Nope, other than an occasional pizza it ry to avoid it. I like very
    freshly made food and even the very good fish & chip from the shop
    about 500 m up the street is not as good delivered ( well actually I
    have to pick it up) as it is when I get it in the shop.

    What a great idea. Nothing around here that I know of - the closest
