LUCAS Restaurants have launched their own delivery service with the launch of 'LUCAS Restaurants Room Service'.
Now you can get food delivered from Melbourne's most innovative restaurants, including Chin Chin, Hawker Hall, Baby Pizza and Kisumé (Australia's best contemporary Japanese restaurants). With restaurants doing it tough, they have needed to rationalise the cuts of up to 35 per cent purportedly taken by delivery companies, such as Uber Eats and Deliveroo.
Organising their own delivery service means restaurants only need to charge customers $5 for the deliveries and more profits go back to the restaurants that need the boost in funds to keep going. The service is not trying to replace the traditional restaurant experience as they ultimately want people back in their venues, but while under lockdown, they have launched this delivery service which will help keep hospitality workers employed.
Making lockdown 2.0 a little easier, Lucas Restaurants Room Service is available to order seven days a week via www.lucas.online/room-service/, which is powered by DoorDash. Delivery is available within four kilometres of the restaurant's location for a flat fee of $5. Guests can check their delivery eligibility via the restaurant's websites:
Those looking into helping the hospitality industry, as well as sourcing great food, should also look into Fair Feed deliveries - a chance to eat restaurant-quality meals made by top chefs from the safety of your home. It involves hospitality workers from some of Melbourne's other best-known restaurants including Bistro Garçon, Revolver Upstairs, Stokehouse, and Cumulus. They have a local and metro delivery service.
