Upscale delivery service Caviar is expanding to Miami, Austin and San Diego, bringing 3,000 additional restaurants into its fold. 

The company viewed the rich food cultures in those cities as a good fit for its hand-picked marketplace of local restaurants, many of which don’t otherwise offer delivery. 

“We are focused on curating the best local restaurants and featuring many of each city’s most acclaimed, hard to access spots,” said Caviar General Manager Nathaniel Emodi in an email. “By elevating the best local and premium restaurants for delivery and pickup, we make high-quality food accessible.”

New partners include fast casual Tarka Indian Kitchen in Austin, The Crack Shack in San Diego and Joe’s Stone Crab in Miami—one of the top-grossing independent restaurants in the U.S.

Caviar declined to share the number of markets it’s in, but its LinkedIn profile lists about a dozen: Boston, New York, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Portland, Sacramento, Seattle, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. If that’s still the case, the three new markets represent a fairly significant expansion of its footprint. As of February, it had a 2% delivery market share, according to Statista

To promote the news, Caviar is offering 50% off for first-time orders and waiving its delivery fee from 3-6 p.m. through Saturday.

San Francisco-based Caviar is owned by DoorDash, which acquired it last year for $410 million.
