Going out to eat is just as “New York” as the Empire State Building, which also means it can get super expensive, super fast. But with the genius app Crave, you can get incredible food and drink deals while helping local businesses during their slow hours.
And in honor of International Women’s Day on Sunday, March 8, you can save money with Crave while also supporting women-powered businesses in your neighborhood! In partnership with the James Beard Foundation (JBF), Crave will be spotlighting some of the most talented women in the New York food industry while giving back to the community at large.
From Sunday, March 8 through Sunday, March 15, Crave’s social media channels and blog will be filled with the moving stories of some of the most successful women in NYC food, from chefs to owners to managers. Of course, the stories openly share how they overcome difficulties in such a male-dominated field.
Also, within the app itself all partnering women-helmed restaurants will be marked with a purple icon, so you can be sure to support these inspiring females as you nab amazing restaurant deals! Proceeds from the bookings will be donated to support the Women’s Initiatives at the James Beard Foundation, which help to advance women in the culinary industry.
Some of the chef and restaurateur stars include: Root & Bone co-chef Janine Booth, Lamia’s Fish Market manager and chef Lamia Funti, Alice’s Tea Cup owners Haley and Lauren Fox, and many more.
