Supporting New York's bars, cafés and restaurants with 'Dine in NYC'

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 select, currently open bars, cafés and restaurants—located in 62 neighborhoods across all five boroughs and serving 27 distinct cuisines*—by gathering the latest information about delivery, takeout and other offerings in one centralized hub.

The Dine in NYC initiative on lists participating establishments and encourages viewers to make purchases directly through eateries when possible. It is designed to spotlight diverse takeout and delivery options across the five boroughs. Browsers can favorite businesses across neighborhoods, a small sampling of which can be found in Bloomfield, Staten Island; Boerum Hill, Brooklyn; Forest Hills, Queens; Pelham Bay, the Bronx; Tribeca, Manhattan. In the interest of pre-planning future pickups and deliveries, New Yorkers can plan for a week full of flavors; from burgers to Belgian, Indian to Italian, Korean to Laotian, Mediterranean to Mexican and everything in between, the delicious options are vibrant.

Keeping in mind user experience, those with dietary concerns or lifestyle preferences can narrow down viable options under the filter Dietary Needs. Additionally, global foodies can look forward to future NYC visits by purchasing gift cards in anticipation of travel, under the Gift Cards filter. Additional filters include Cuisine and Location (including boroughs and neighborhoods).

    I’ve got a feeling that this is going to be part of the future for the restaurant industry. Thinking back, I’ve eaten in some ridiculously crowded restaurants where you have to move your chair every time someone wants to go to the loo or a waiter walks past. Worst of all the acoustics of crowded restaurants are terrible.

    I am very happy to host friends around a well-spaced dining table as long as I don’t have to cook the food!

    What a great facility! NYC has always been a great culinary centre – no need to miss out just because of a little virus.

    Such a good idea to keep people fed safely and companies in business, even if it just helps to keep them ticking over. Showing support for local businesses is a great thing to be able to do, especially in times like this, and if it’s all done safely then it could be beneficial for everyone. Having one centralised hub where you can see all the eatery options and how to order either as take out or delivery is very helpful. Sounds like an excellent service for those in that area.

    A great innovative idea! It pools every restaurant people know and love in NYC together in one platform, eliminating costly advertising for the business owner as well as making it convenient for shoppers like me to browse a diverse menu in just one site. It makes me happy that we can still keep businesses open in this new normal we have to live with for a couple years. I never want to see good business go down as it doesn’t help people and the economy as well. Good news here, all things considered. I hope similar collaborations will happen throughout the world. Thank you for sharing.

    I wonder how all of this is going? I think this is still happening and I agree that it should be part of the future … more people ordering take-out to avoid crowds. But I can also understand wanting to visit a restaurant for its ambiance, etc. This will change the industry for sure.
