The guys over at Restaurant Connection have recently expanded their delivery area and list of restaurants to include several in the wonderful City of St Paul.

Offering delivery to the following Zip Codes:

  • 55101  (St Paul)
  • 55102 ( St Paul)
  • 55103 (South Como)
  • 55104 (Merriam Park)
  • 55105 (Macalester)
  • 55108 (Falcon Heights)
  • 55111 (Airport)
  • 55112 (New Brighton)
  • 55113 (Roseville)
  • 55114 (Prospect Park)
  • 55116 (Highland Park)
  • 55150 (Airport)
  • 55155 (St Paul)

St Paul Restaurants added to the list:

  • Fuji-Ya
  • The Italian Pie Shoppe
  • Everest on Grand

Additionally, Restaurant Connection offers delivery of many Minneapolis restaurants to the St Paul area.  The site is easy to use and ordering is also very straightforward.  I had a great experience when I used them last summer and think they’re worth a try the next time you’re in need of restaurant delivery.  They do corporate events too.

Dear Readers,

I am very excited today to tell you about the best thing to come along since the invention of the Restaurant……

Restaurant Delivery!

As much as I love going out to eat, sometimes I don’t feel like going anywhere nor do I feel like cooking.  Sure, pizza delivery is wonderful but I like to have several other options open to me.

Restaurant Connection to the rescue!

Restaurant Connection is a local delivery service that will deliver food from over twenty local restaurants straight to your door, whether that be home, work or a hotel.  They also do corporate events.  If you need delivery to anywhere in the following area on this map, you’re in luck!  The coverage area will be expanding into St Paul as soon as possible.  Yippee!

A lunch meeting that I attended recently was the perfect opportunity to try Restaurant Connection for the first time.

Ordering was very simple:

  1. Click Order Online
  2. Enter your Location and Desired Delivery Date & Time
  3. Select a Restaurant you’d like to enjoy and build your order
  4. Login to your Account or Create a new customer account  (this will save your address for future uses)
  5. Continue to Checkout
  6. Select a payment method (Cash or Credit)
  7. Relax for 45 – 60 minutes & Enjoy!

Here is a small glimpse of the restaurants that now offer delivery through Restaurant Connection, with more being added all the time:

We ordered from Lotus Restaurant.  Everything was really easy to order online, all of the menu items were laid out efficiently and you add items to your cart like you would with any online order.  Every little detail and option about the food items were clear, including the desired level of spice.  It literally took me longer to decide what I wanted to order than the ordering itself.

Once the order was placed, the food arrived 35 minutes later, which was less time than the expected 45-60 minutes.

The delivery guy showed up in this cute and efficient delivery car.

I took a few photos of our delivery guy who never suspected he was going to star in this post ;)

He delivered the food to the conference room where we were having our meeting and set everything up for us.

The food was hot, fresh and tasted great! I will be visiting Lotus Restaurant in person sometime in the future and promise a full review then, but here is a sneak peak:

I was very happy with the delivery service that was provided by Restaurant Connection and would recommend it to others based on this experience.  I look forward to seeing the restaurants and delivery area expand into St Paul when I can use it several times a week.

I hope to do a Giveaway to Restaurant Connection sometime in the near future so that some lucky reader can try this great service for themselves, stay tuned!
