Miami's thrifty foodies can get fine-dinning discounts with a new reservation website, Savored.com. Spending $10 on Savored will book you a reservation at one of the featured Miami-area restaurants. In return, they automatically take 30 percent off your entire bill.
The concept allows diners to save money without flashing a printed-out coupon – and without mentioning an online discount in front of a date or business client.
Formerly known as VillageVines.com, Savored has partnered with Zagat to feature restaurant reviews and ratings. The year-old website also expanded this week to Atlanta Boston, Denver and Philadelphia. It already served the areas of New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Washington D.C.
Currently it is featuring 16 restaurants in Miami-Dade, including Shula’s Steak House, Escopazzo, Fratelli Lyon and George's in the Grove.
The company predicts it will generate more than $25 million in sales for its restaurant partners this year. In the last six months, it has grown its staff from six to nearly 50 full-time employees.
