Amazon announced on Tuesday that customers of its Prime Now service in Seattle now have the ability to have food delivered from local restaurants.

Users can browse menus from participating restaurants using the Prime Now app, and can place orders and track the delivery. Amazon delivery drivers pick up the food after the order is placed, and deliver it within an hour or less.

“Prime members can now enjoy food from the Seattle restaurants they love without having to drive all over the city,” said Gus Lopez GM of Amazon Restaurants. “For many of these restaurants, this is the first time they are offering delivery, and we are delighted they have chosen to work with us.”

Participating restaurants so far include: Cactus, Wild Ginger, Skillet, Marination Station, Re:public, Café Yumm!, Ten Mercer, Mamnoon and "many" more.

“By offering restaurant delivery through Prime Now, we are able to reach customers who are craving our Skillet deliciousness, but don’t have time to swing by,” said Jon Severson, President of Skillet. “Now, with just a few taps on their phone, Seattle customers can get their favorite Skillet menu items delivered directly to their door in less than an hour.”

For now, the service is available for select Seattle zip codes, but it will expand in the coming days. You'll see if you're eligible from within the app.

Last month, Prime Now launched in Seattle with the new option to have beer, wine and spirits delivered. Prime Now is also available in Austin, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Indianapolis, Miami, and NYC.
