FreshDirect is a godsend for New Yorkers: grocery delivery at prices lower than the corner deli or supermarket. One of my New Year's resolutions was to actually cook food for myself rather than just ordering take-out all the time, and FreshDirect is helping with that in a big way. I don't have to worry about going to three or four different stores to find the food I need -- heck, I don't need to make the time to go to any!
I agree with Caroline and Allie, FreshDirect.com is a total god-send. They have delish snacks and entrees that are gourmet enough to serve for a nice dinner. The fruit selection is pretty good as is the wine. The delivery is quick and has always been on time. And, Inexplicably, I randomly receive free items I didn't order. One time it was three boxes of Barilla pasta, another a bar of soap, today I received a 12-pack of Amstel light (alright!) and, the best one, 6 four-packs of Orangina. I don't know why and I'm not going to ask. My only gripe is the wastefulness of the boxes! Every time I open up a box and see two small items in it I just shake my head. Surely there is a way to be a touch more eco-friendly.
