Since all of the rooms at the Sonesta are equipped with full kitchens, including a full-size refrigerator, cook top stove and microwave, along with dishes, silverware, glassware and more, we have a few options for meal support.
You now have the option of having a homemade meal delivered, one from a local restaurant (listed below), providing gift cards to Uber Eats, Door Dash or Grubhub, or supplying groceries so that guests may cook their own meals.
Please indicate restaurant-delivered meal, gift card or groceries in dinner comment section.
For meal delivery from local restaurants, here is a list of ones close to the Sonesta that will deliver:
Szechuan Delite https://www.szechuandelite.com/

If you choose to provide gift cards, they can be mailed or dropped off at Family Promise's day center, located at 3 Executive Drive, Morris Plains, NJ 07950 (next to the Interfaith Food Pantry).
