Seamless has some of the best fans in the world. They stand by us during the hangriest of times and come to us to feed them day in and day out. This is a weekly feature where we highlight one of our proudest and most awesome Seamlessers. This week, we have Samantha the wife of a chef, who can still order Seamless up to 5 times in a day!
First Name: Samantha
Age: is just a number
Occupation: Real Estate
How and When Did You Discover Seamless? I believe it was when we moved back to NYC, about five years ago. I think I saw it on a delivery guy’s bag. I started to use it and became totally hooked. At first, we only had a handful of places in my neighborhood, and within a short time, thankfully, there were more places than just pizza. Now, I order from Seamless religiously and tell everyone I know to do the same. It’s the ultimate convenient luxury. I’m actually afraid that one day we will move to a place that doesn’t offer Seamless. But, luckily, we don’t have to worry about that right now.
Where Do You Use Seamless? Home, work, and remotely, when I am on my way to either aforementioned places!
Favorite Kind of Food: This is really the toughest question for me, and I get it a lot (my husband is a chef). My favorite kind of food to order at the moment is either Mediterranean or Indian, but I do love the classics like white pizza from Inatesso and bagels from Zucker’s (Typical NYer).
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Diner Food – it doesn’t travel well, no one like soggy fries!
Favorite Place(s) to Order From on Seamless? Soom Soom (UWS), Saffron Thread (Tribeca), Lemon Leaves (FiDi), and most recently – the new My Belly’s Playlist (FiDi). I secretly wish we lived in the East Village, the restaurant options in that neighborhood are insane! If we lived there, I would never cook again.
What’s your record for orders placed on Seamless in a 24-hour period? Oh gosh, maybe 4 or 5? I like to place a lot of orders in a row when I need different things – and I always need different things! It makes my dogs crazy, but it saves me so much time. My mom and my sister think that all I ever do is order delivery – and that would be correct!
If you had to eat food for 30 days in a row, what would that be? Is this the “Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are?” – Brillat-Savarin (the existential epicurean) question? I don’t think I could do that, I need variety. But I do like eggs. I could eat eggs forever. Side note – our dog is named Savarin, after this famous gastronome. And he also enjoys eggs as much as I do.
Least Favorite Thing About Calling Restaurants? When I know the products they sell better than they do, it can be very frustrating. Also, my husband has an accent, so that can be a challenge as well. He can never just order a “Coke” so I told him to say “Soda” or I just do it for him.
Favorite Celebrity Chef? My husband, Shaun Hergatt. And what is my favorite thing he makes for me? Eggs. Oh, and ricotta pancakes. His are the best in the world!
What Superpower Do You Wish You Had? This isn’t a superpower – more a magic thing, but I always wanted to be able to switch outfits by snapping my fingers – a la Bewitched.
Plans for Tonight? Ordering Seamless, of course – I still have to get home, go to the gym, walk my dogs and pack for a trip! Thank goodness for Seamless, it couldn’t be more convenient, efficient, painless, simple and fun. And you guys have the most amazing customer service. Thanks!
