D.C.-based LivingSocial is launching a new concept this week called “Room Service,” which brings upscale dining to your front door—-“complete with real dishes, candles and cloth napkins.” Dow Jones’ All Things Digital blog has the scoop. Beginning Thursday, Kushi in Mt. Vernon Square will serve as the guinea pig of the new delivery service, offering two set menus for $66 each: “The first offers several small plates, including shrimp and pork skewers, with a plate of sushi. The second offers vegetarian small plate options, such as mushrooms and soba noodles with a plate of sushi.” Owner Ari Kushimoto Norris suggests the new service could be a big hit with working families who can’t find a babysitter but do have the money to spring for a nice meal.
