It seems like you can order pretty much anything online these days, and fresh food is no exception. With the ongoing improvement in modern shipping methods it is possible to order bagels from New York and receive them in San Francisco before they get stale. I don’t know if this is necessarily a good thing (Slow Food proponents and locavores would have a field day), but for those very special occasions when nothing else will do, here are some of your online gourmet options.
Bagels: H & H Bagels in New York is justly famous for their chewy, fresh creations.
Cheesecake: It’s possible to have cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory sent directly to your home. Or join the Cheesecake of the Month Club and get one delivered every month.
Lobster: It may be hard to believe, but this company will send live lobsters to your home.
Oysters: Love fresh oysters but can’t get them where you live? This company will sell you two dozen live oysters to satisfy your craving.
Filet Mignon: Liven up your next dinner party with these tasty filet mignons.
