Jane Maxwell’s Room Service

She’ll deliver the spread to your door, and it’s delicious. Twenty-four dollars buys quiche, Perrier, French bread, sweet butter, broccoli and eggplant in a shallot vinaigrette, and pears with crème chantilly. She will also prepare more elaborate dishes (cold poached salmon, with sauce verte) and choose your wine (Maxwell used to be the sommelier at the Parker House).
