SeamlessWebber of the Week: Shayna

Every Thursday, a different SeamlessWeb customer tells us all about how he or she uses the site. If you pay close attention here you just might learn something. This week we have Shayna, who is known to her friends as Miss Menu, and would be really happy if she could just find a Mexican BBQ joint.

SeamlessWebber of the Week - Shayna

Name: Shayna

Age: 28

Occupation: Marketing Manager

SeamlessWeb User Since: December 2008

Where Do You Use SW? Home and friends’ apartments

Favorite Kind of Food: Tie between BBQ and Mexican. Growing up in Atlanta, I was alway surrounded by a lot of great BBQ and Mexican places. So I love trying them in NYC to see how they compare. Some can hold their own, but others seems to be missing a little of that Southern charm!

Least Favorite Kind of Food: Indian. Try as I might, I just can’t get into curries. And even when I order a “curry-less” dish like Chicken Tikka Masala, I still don’t love it.

Favorite Place(s) to Order From on SW: Baby Bo’s Cantina (My favorite dish is the Vegetable Enchiladas Suizas, which comes with beans and rice. The different sauces they use are incredible!), Libretto’s Pizzeria (I go for the plain pizza every time. Why ruin perfection by adding toppings?), Ethos Greek Cuisine (My roommate and I have it down to a science. We order Tzatziki with pita to start. Then we share Elliniki, a classic Greek salad, and Kotopoulo Giouvetsi, which is boneless chicken breast baked in a pot with orzo, tomato sauce, and feta cheese.)

Least Favorite Thing About Calling Restaurants? Busy signals.

Closest Previous Brush with Internet Fame? I started a blog called Miss Menu as a way of sharing my great NYC dining experiences with my friends and family. A year and a half later, I still can’t believe that people besides my mom and dad are reading it!

Favorite Celebrity Chef? Anthony Bourdain. He really sees an importance in learning about other countries and cultures, mostly through their cuisine. That’s what I love about New York City…when you’re not able to travel to those far off places, you can easily take a culinary trip around the world without leaving the five boroughs!

Favorite Cartoon Growing Up? The Simpsons. (Ed: Need we say more?)

Plans for Tonight? Going to The Australian with co-workers for Happy Hour, then heading down to the East Village for dinner and drinks with some friends at Mercadito.

  1. Seriously?

    Thievery!! Come on now SL, can’t you be a little more creative than stealing the exact same idea (and format!!) from Midtown Lunch? It’s really quite pathetic.

  2. Hmmmm....

    I don’t get why ML makes such a big stink out of this. This girl is out there to promote her blog. Do people really think most of these profilees are doing this out of kindness?

  3. How creative, SW

    It has nothing to do with the girl promoting her blog and everything to do with Seamless Web ripping off an idea (doing a poor job at it) and style that’s been around for quite some time by one, yes. Midtown Lunch.

  4. Hmmmm....

    The title of ML’s post is called "Profiled Lunch’er Infidelity." He’s just bitchin’ about how "HIS" profiler betrayed HIS precious site and did a very similar profile for another site. He also gets that way when it comes to other sites covering restaurants that he’s covered — like he feels that he’s got owner’s rights to every God-damn restaurant in stinkin’ Midtown. Apparently he’s a bit possessive of the readers as well.

    I do agree with you that the Seamless Web’s profile is definitely similar to Midtown Lunch’s. Well, hasn’t your momma taught you that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?

    this isn’t imitation! this is a crappy mockery. shut up, seamless web. stop defending yourself with corny cliches. you yourself just said there was no reason to since ml was addressing the person.

  6. Hmmmm

    I am not affiliated with seamless web or midtown lunch. I just don’t see what the big deal is. It just shows how young (or immature) ML is by calling profilees like that. And I’m kind of gettin’ sick and tired of them getting all high and mighty if somebody covers a "Midtown Lunch." I profiled one of THEIR "Midtown Lunch" places way before they did. But he acts like he just discovered the holy grail and gets pissed off if he suspects (that’s right — suspects — cuz there’s no proof) somebody’s ripping him off. Did I go into a hissy fit because he "discovered" the place that I had already written about? No. There’s room for many blogs. I don’t feel like I have to stake a "claim" on every discovery I make. Who knows? There may have been others who discovered it before me. Big whoop. ML just needs to get over themselves.

    When I initially commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
    and from now on every time a comment is added I
    receive 4 emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there
    is a means you are able to remove me from that service?
    Many thanks!
