Thanks to food delivery service, Caviar, you can now have Mei Mei Street Kitchen’s pierogi dumplings or Ming Tsai’s duck confit fried rice delivered right to your door.

Earlier this year, commerce company Square purchased Caviar, the San Francisco-based startup that connects customers and independent restaurants. That acquisition has meant an aggressive expansion, not only in the number of cities where Caviar has a presence, but the breadth of their portfolio.

In Boston, that means you can get quick delivery from high profile restaurants such as Eastern Standard, Blue Dragon, and starting this week, Mei Mei. Other notable restaurants include Scissors & Pie, El Pelon, Anna’s Taqueria, and Pho Pasteur. And they’re aggressively pursuing more culinary partners.

Besides the quality of their client list, Caviar also has a much more ambitious delivery radius than its competition. Granted, the service is currently only available in Cambridge, Allston, Downtown, and Southie, but if you live in those areas, any of their restaurants are up for grabs. Starting today Caviar has also introduced its first mobile app showcasing full-color photos of each restaurant and menu item and GPS capability to track the status of your delivery.

Now if they would only venture into Somerville, Brookline, Jamaica Plain, and beyond.
