Living in NYC isn’t cheap. There are certainly ways to be smart about spending though, and the Crave app is one of your best resources.
For those of you unfamiliar with the Crave app, it’s a restaurant deals app that has recently launched in New York after revolutionizing the dining scene in Australia. With this app, restaurant owners are able to fill out quiet times by sending out live deals of up to 50% off – enticing customers to visit the venue. Whether you’re looking for a spot for a date night, a business meeting, or just to grab a cup of coffee, there’s always a place nearby offering an extra incentive to get you into a seat—and the discounts offered are off the entire bill every time, drinks included (which is always a plus!). This means big deals at a number of local hotspots for savvy New Yorkers using the app.
Some of our favorites already dishing out awesome deals on the app include:
- Tijuana Picnic
- Burger & Barrel
- Hole In The Wall
- Rai Rai Ken
- El Toro Blanco
- Tang Hotpot
- Drunken Dumpling
- Taco Mahal
Crave allows you to subscribe to your favorite restaurants so you can be notified whenever they post a deal. You can actually save hundreds on your weekly food expenses, just by eating out more often.
In a city where food delivery dominates, Crave makes it possible to order more for less and support your favorite local restaurants without having to break the bank. Come to think of it, airlines and hotels have been using this sort of dynamic pricing for years now. It’s definitely time restaurants were given that opportunity!
Crave was created by renowned celebrity chef Marco Pierre White (who knows these restaurant challenges well) in partnership with Co-Founders Matt Cantelo, Ben Tyler, and Pan Koutlakis. The app is intended to encourage New Yorkers to eat out more often, which in turn will help restaurants fill seats during some of their tougher hours. If you’re open to eating a bit earlier or later than you normally would, you can save anywhere from 20% to 50% off the exact same meal. It’s truly a win-win for everyone.
So before you head out for your next meal or daily cup of joe, download the Crave app here to see what deals are right under your nose!
Bonus: With the promo code SECRETNYC you can also get an extra 5% off
