As restaurants and bars continue to reopen around the country, we’re excited to fill you in on a new benefit for our Friends of The Infatuation members - dining perks at some of our favorite restaurants in NYC.
The Infatuation’s membership program involves year-long benefits like members-only events, exclusive content, recommendations, perks, and more, and you can join here.
Our newest perk is one that celebrates the NYC restaurants we love and hopefully gives you another reason to eat out when you feel comfortable doing that. We’ve partnered with spots like Crown Shy, Wayla, and more. Get all the details below, and if you haven’t already, sign up to become a Friend here.
Restaurant perks run for a limited time and have been extended through 2021. Partners and offers are subject to change and there will be some new perks added through the end of the year. If you have questions about the perks or the Friends of The Infatuation program, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
