Get the Best Deals at Your Favorite Restaurants

Score perks for your palate with Blackboard Eats
Dining out is great.  But in the age of dwindling expense accounts, it’s a pricey undertaking.

To soften the blow, try BlackboardEats, a new service that offers exclusive deals on restaurants and artisanal culinary products handpicked by seasoned food editors.

To start, subscribe to the BlackboardEats e-mail (it’s delivered the same way Netted is).  Each email will contain a single delicious deal (30% off your meal or free appetizers, for example) at some of your city’s best restaurants.

Each email will contain a numeric passcode that you’ll use to get the deal (mention the number to the host when you arrive) that expires after 24 hours.

Rather than sending a dozen mediocre deals, the site only sends one offer per day, to ensure quality.  And while the service features new hot spots they also focus on hidden gems and great no-frills joints.

They currently covers Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco (with more locales in the works). For those who don’t live in one of those cities there’s a section called “everywhere,” which offers deals on culinary products that can shipped to you.

Consider your diet plans foiled.
