forever ahead of their time

From a press release:

“Amazon.com today announced that Prime members in the greater Washington, D.C. area can now enjoy delivery from 150 popular restaurants, including Maketto, Ben’s Next Door, Hill Country Barbecue Market, Kapnos, b DC Penn Quarter, and many more. Amazon Restaurants is expanding its delivery territory from Northern Virginia to customers in the Capitol Hill, Georgetown, Adams Morgan, H Street, Shaw, and Downtown neighborhoods, to name a few.

“The hustle and bustle in the nation’s capital can make it difficult to try all the amazing restaurants around town,” said Gus Lopez, general manager of Amazon Restaurants. “Now, Amazon Restaurants makes it easy to skip traffic and get delicious meals from top restaurants conveniently delivered to your office or home in an hour or less.”

Using the Amazon or Prime Now mobile apps or by visiting www.amazon.com/restaurants, Prime members in D.C. can order from participating restaurants, browse menus, track the status of their delivery, and watch as their delivery driver travels from the restaurant to the delivery address in real time.

Once an order is placed, the food will be delivered in one hour or less. Amazon Restaurants offers customers transparent pricing—there are no menu markups. If a customer finds a restaurant item on Amazon Restaurants that is priced higher than the regularly priced item on the restaurant’s current online menu within 24 hours of placing the order, Amazon will refund that customer the price of the item.

“Who doesn’t love being a Prime member and all the benefits that come with it?” said Jesse Hiney, general manager of Osteria Morini DC. “Now my customers will be able to get our delicious pasta delivered right to their doors. Sounds dangerous in a delicious way!”
