Amazon is now doing free food delivery in Manhattan

Written by

The delivery arms race doesn't seem to be stopping anytime soon—joining food-delivery services like Caviar, Postmates and, most recently, David Chang's Ando comes Amazon's new contender, a no-fee operation offering delivery from more than 350 Manhattan restaurants within an hour courtesy Prime Now. The move, along with the addition of delivery in Dallas, means Amazon's service is now available in 10 U.S. cities, including Los Angeles, Seattle and Chicago. 

The launch list of NYC restaurants includes Empellon Taqueria, Mile End Delicatessen, Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken and, in its first go at delivery, John's of Bleecker Street. Sweet tooths will be sated with dessert spots like Momofuku Milk Bar and cheesecake icon Junior's. There are no service or delivery fees, but there is one catch—customers must be members of Amazon Prime to use the service, which means you'll have to pony up $99 a year if you're not already a member.
