In New York, when you don't want to cook and don't want to go out, you order in. You phone the restaurant, struggle with someone's heavy accent, place your order and--voila!--a little man arrives on a bike or scooter with your chicken tikka masala or felafel or borscht or sesame noodles, packed up all nice and piping hot in a bag with a cardboard bottom. One gets spoiled and a bit lazy, you know? But now there are not one but two restaurants in St. Remy that deliver: La Cantina and Nostra Pizza. La Cantina, owned by the couple behind Bistrot Decouverte, offers a full Italian menu including antipasti, salads, carpaccio, bruschetta, pasta, pizzas, a plat du jour and desserts...at both lunch and dinner.Delivery is 5€. If you want to pick up or eat in, La Cantina is at 18 blvd. Victor Hugo. To order: 04-90-90-90-60. The more casual Nostra Pizza, with a tiny storefront at 24 Blvd. Victor Hugo, offers a wide range of pizzas, hot and cold sandwiches, good hamburgers, salads, savory and sweet paninis and three "menus" with a drink included. Delivery is 2€. To order: 04-90-92-58-83. Next, we hear St. Remy will be getting a Starbucks and a Gap. Joke.
