Despite Some Bad Publicity, Yelp Teams With Dallas Restaurants for Meal Deals
Yelp, the reader review website that's currently fighting a class action lawsuit from retailers and restaurateurs (the plaintiffs claim the company strong-armed them into buying ads in exchange for deleting negative reviews), has recruited 15 Dallas restaurants for its upcoming Yelp Eats! Week.
Participating restaurants will offer a $25 app, entrée and dessert prix fixe dinner menu from June 21 to June 27. Yelp advises diners to request the "Yelp Eats" special when making reservations.
Sample menus are posted online: Featured entrees include gnocchi with wild boar ragu from Arcodoro Pomodoro (awarded 4.5 stars by Yelp's Dallas restaurant site), chicken flautas at La Duni (4 stars), pan-seared scallops at Cru (4 stars) and lemon-and-sage-brined turkey breast at Smoke (3.5 stars).
Yelp Eats! Week will be held concurrently in eight other cities, including Houston and Austin.
