Marley Spoon‘s recipe for success is pretty simple: take some great quality ingredients, pack them up in a box with ice packs and easy to follow directions, and ship them out for your enjoyment. About 6 months ago we were drawn to this kind of approach when we started using Blue Apron, another meal delivery service, so we were totally onboard when Marley Spoon reached out to us to try their service.

Marley Spoon is organized by Culinary Director Jennifer Aaronson who was Martha Stewart’s Editorial Director of Food & Entertaining and offers a similar service to Blue Apron, but with one major difference: Marley Spoon sends leftover ingredients (after they pack all their customers’ boxes) to City Harvest, which helps feed more than 1.4 million NY’ers who don’t have enough to eat. As if that weren’t awesome enough, their food is pretty awesome too, with ingredients that come from local farms, artisan shops, vendors, and butchers. Ok, so let us break it down for you . . .

Bar Sugo Hosting Italian Wine Class + Food Pairing Series January-February

5 Jan

Take the sting out of the cold weather and warm up with some great wine and food at Bar Sugo in SoNo. Chef Pat Pascarella, will be hosting a series of wine and food pairings that cost just $35 (plus tip) per person. That’s a steal, but the real deal comes when you attend all five classes: you’ll get a $75 gift certificate for two people. In addition, you’ll also get a small plate certificate that you can hand in for some great Italian tapas when you visit Bar Sugo again. To secure your spot, e-mail Pat and co. with the date(s) that you’d like to attend.

Delivery Made Easy with Rewards: Seamless and Delivery.com

29 Mar

One of the most frustrating things about ordering delivery  over the phone (#ConnecticutProblems) is repeating yourself 30 times, or being put on hold, or being transferred to 10 different people.  Yeah, it’s seriously annoying and it’s a big waste of time, especially when there are other important things to do like watch TV, surf the net, watch the kids, or just be lazy.

But, two websites are making delivery (or pick up) just a bit easier and giving you some great things in return.  All around, we use Seamless more often because they have a better variety of restaurants for delivery by us, but Delivery.com is still a good option.  Let’s look at Seamless first.

Seamless has a very easy to use interface where you can save restaurants into your favorites and even just order a previous meal with just a few clicks.  You’ll often see restaurants that have deals like 10% or 20% of orders!  Be aware that some restaurants charge a small fee for delivery, but it’s not a fee from Seamless.  Also, Seamless will send out emails time to time with special discount codes that you can enter before your finalize your purchase.  Our favorite part:  add the tip right in and when your food arrives, the delivery person will hand it to you, thank you, then leave.  That’s more time for your to spend gorging yourself.  Right now they are in the Greenwich, Stamford, and Westport areas, but are expanding.

Save Some Serious Dough with Restaurant.com

28 Mar

Our obsession with Restaurant.com (not Restaurants.com) started years ago when we’d shell out $5 and get a $50 pass to restaurants.  The amount of money we saved was awesome and we continue to check this site when we want to save some major dinero.  We use it for local restaurants and especially when we’re on vacation and want to find a quick, inexpensive meal.

It works pretty easily:  enter the city and state where you want a certificate then select the restaurant.  The most common option that you’ll see is pay $10 for a $25 certificate, but sometimes there will be bigger incentives like $20 for $50, $30 for $75, or even $40 for $100.  Before you purchase your certificate, just make sure that there aren’t any terms of the agreement that won’t work for you such as, “Only includes lunch,” or “No dinner on Saturday.”  Also, pay close attention to the fine print because some have an order minimum or some include a tip into the amount of the bill automatically.
