LivingSocial now offering ‘white-glove delivery’ service


Have your Kushi and eat it [on ceramic plates], too. (James M. Thresher - FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)
Washington: For days when having your roasted duck thigh and seaweed salad delivered to your doorstep just simply isn’t enough, LivingSocial has launched Room Service, a promised “white- glove” delivery experience.

The inaugural offer from the deeply discounted goods and services Web site is from local favorite Kushi; $66 gets you a custom-built menu delivered with ceramic plates, candles and cloth napkins.

From LivingSocial: “Along with an elegantly plated meal on ceramic dishware, we’ll provide you with everything you need, from a cloth napkin to candles. As for those dirty dishes? We’ll take care of those, too. Just place them in a LivingSocial Room Service container, leave them outside your door the next day, and we’ll pick them up.”

The pilot program will be tested in D.C. before LivingSocial rolls it out to other cities. I don’t know about you, but most of my delivery options remain in the carton while consumed.

Thoughts?
