This Week's Best Food Deals, Starring Yumi To Go, Gilt Taste and More
(Weekly deals are helpfully divided into Silver Spoon and Wooden Spoon, for your pricey and less pricey finds, respectively.)
SILVER SPOON DEALS
Because you've got to drop some serious coin to save some serious coin.
Gilt City Dallas: Multi-course dinners for 2 or 4 at Suze Restaurant
If you like to buy your your fancy pants at a discount, this deal from Gilt City Dallas will allow you to get your silver spoon on at Suze for 40 percent off. But hurry -- this offer ends today.
Gilt Taste: Get three months of whoopie pies delivered for $119.
via Gilt Taste
Do you like whoopie pies? Would you like to become a member of a Whoopie Pie of the Month Club? Do you have plenty of disposable income? Okay! Pay just $119 for a dozen whoopies delivered to you once a month for three months. That's thirty-six WPs or approximately $3.31 per pie. And if you prefer brownies or cookies, Gilt Taste has some of those too. At least with delivery you're guaranteed not to be forced to valet.
WOODEN SPOON DEALS
If you're going out anyway, why not save a few bucks?
Soutmob: 50% off at Villa-O
If you haven't heard of Scoutmob, you should get it. It's an app for iPhone that offers up half off deals at local places (and good ones too, not those randoms that come across your inbox every day. I'm looking at you, A-List.) Plus, it's free and all you have to do is show the app at the restaurant to get your half off. Scoutmob announced a deal this week for Villa-O, the "organic" Italian Colombo-owned spot on Travis in Uptown that features a really great patio for people watching and for being seen drinking white wine, plus a appealing kids eat free-style deal on Sundays, if you happen to be so
afflicted blessed with children. Villa-O didn't blow my foodie skirt up the last time I ate there, but check it out, if you're into that sort of thing, at 50 percent off. NOTE: max discount at Villa-O is $25, and each ScoutMob deal can only be used once.
Groupon: $6 for $12 at Yumi To Go
Yumi To Go isn't terribly authentic. I mean, it's called Yumi To Go, for goodness sake, and it's delivered in fluorescent green clown cars. But it's fresh, fast and cooked to order. The people love it. And if you haven't tried it, a half-off deal is the perfect time to give it a shot. Fans of legit Asian probably should not apply. Use your best judgment.
