NYC & Company, New York City’s official destination marketing organization, today announced the launch of "Dine in NYC." The digital initiative encourages those who are able to, to continue to patronize more than 200, currently open bars, cafés and restaurants—located in 62 neighborhoods across all five boroughs and serving 27 cuisines—by gathering the latest information about delivery, takeout and other offerings in one centralized hub.
"During this very challenging time for our restaurant industry, we are taking steps to encourage New Yorkers to support local eateries as much as possible through the 'Dine in NYC' program," said NYC & Company president and CEO Fred Dixon in a written release. “Through takeout and delivery, residents can still sample our City's best food and support restaurant workers by taking advantage of this worthwhile program.”
The "Dine in NYC" initiative on NYCgo.com lists participating establishments and encourages viewers to make purchases directly through eateries when possible. It is designed to spotlight a variety of takeout and delivery options. Browsers can also favorite businesses across neighborhoods. Those with dietary concerns or lifestyle preferences can narrow down options under the filter Dietary Needs. Additionally, global foodies can look forward to future New York City visits by purchasing gift cards in anticipation of travel, under the Gift Cards filter.
