Amazon announced two months ago that it added the ability to have food delivered from local restaurants to its Prime Now service in Seattle. Now, the company has announced the same availability for customers in Los Angeles.

Prime Now customers can get food delivered from Umami Burger, Baby Blues BBQ, Wokcano, Hurry Curry of Tokyo, Feast from the East, John O’Groats Restaurant, and "many" more in the L.A. area.

This is in addition to tens of thousands of items from local stores like Sprouts Farmers Market, Bristol Farms, Sprinkles Cupcakes, Erewhon Organic Grocer and 99 Ranch Market.

“Los Angeles is known for great local restaurants with cuisines from around world,” said Gus Lopez, general manager, Amazon Restaurants. “We’re excited to offer Amazon Prime customers in Los Angeles a fast and convenient way to enjoy some of the city's best restaurants without having to stand in line or brave the traffic.”

“Restaurant delivery on Prime Now makes it possible to enjoy Umami Burger even if you don’t have time to swing by and pick it up yourself,” said Meghan Dwyer, Umami Burger. “With just a few taps of the phone and the Prime Now app, customers can order their favorite menu items, like our original Umami burger and truffle fries, and have it delivered right to their door in less than an hour.”

“Whether you're craving our Smokin’ Wings, Baby Back Ribs or Brisket, you can now place an order directly through the Prime Now app and have our unique, made-from-scratch experience delivered in less than an hour,” said Liz Gulash, Baby Blues BBQ. “We are excited to offer new and existing customers yet another convenient way to enjoy Baby Blues BBQ.”

Prime Now members can use the Prime Now app to view menus, place orders, and track delivery status. Food is delivered in an hour or less.

The service is immediately available in select Los Angeles zip codes and will expand to more in the coming days. You'll know if you're eligible if you enter your zip code into the app.
