pillaging restaurant.com’s booty

t says:  For those who might not be familiar, there is a website called restaurant.com that has a rather interesting proposition: pay some amount of money now to receive a gift certificate for a restaurant for an even larger amount of money.  For example, $20 will get you a $25 gift certificate.  j was kind enough to gift us some of these certificates some time ago and we thought they were quite fun.  What’s even better is that now, if you join the mailing list, restaurant.com will very frequently send you discount codes that will allow you to get a full-price gift certificate (e.g. $25) for a nearly insignificant amount of money (e.g. $4).  The code right now is “ENJOY”.  Unfortunately, restaurant.com’s restaurant list is a little lacking.  Our recommendations from the current list are City Tap House and Kabul.  I’d say that City Tap House is pretty consistent in terms of providing satisfactory food, but the drawback is that the place is very often full of undergrads and the like (not that there’s anything wrong with that – but they do make me feel pretty darn old).  Kabul is kind of like a hole-in-the-wall Afghan restaurant that’s been there for who knows how long but is still cranking out delicious food.  They’ve been flying under the radar for quite some time now, so I hope the restaurant.com promotion works for them to draw in some patrons.  If it weren’t so far away, I know that g and I would go there all the time.

  2. Have you heard of savored.com? It could have a better selection, but it has some decent choices. Their whole deal is that you pay $10 for a reservation and then get 30% off, alcohol included. The thing they don’t tell you though is, automatically, a week or two after you sign up you end up getting a promo email that your first reservation is free. I’m going to Marigold soon through it and then Umai Umai for sushi later this month.

    If you do end up signing up, you should do it through my link so I get a $10 credit :)

    • t says: We have indeed heard of savored. kp, a, v, g, and I are all still waiting to go to Marigold via a Savored reservation (would have been this past weekend, but conflicts came up so it’ll be the last in January). If you wait around after signing up for savored, they even credit you a temporary $10 so your first reservation is “free” (I lost mine because I didn’t use it … sadness …). I’ll leave your link up and put up a’s link as well as soon as he gets it to me – we’ll see if anyone bites!
