STARTUPS GUARANTEE YOU A DATE FOR VALENTINE’S DAY
Need a last-minute date for Valentine’s Day? BetaTastr -- a Manhattan-based dining club that offers its members a unique experience to discover new restaurants throughout the city -- has teamed up with IVANA, the first artificial intelligence-driven dating app, and FED, an exclusive chef service, to provide daters with an exclusive food experience and blind date for Valentine’s Day.
BetaTastr users who order a dinner for Valentine’s Day will have the opportunity to enjoy it in the company of a specially matched blind date. Matches will be hosted at a chef experience powered by FED at hidden pop-ups throughout the city. The meal will be curated by FED’s inspirational executive chef Deb Fishman. Would-be daters sign up at www.betatastrvday.com, where applicants will be accepted through Friday at midnight. Daters will get matched by IVANA and sent a secret location for dinner.
BetaTastr Chairman & Co-founder Richie Hecker commented, “Our goal is to help people discover great dining experiences, so we thought for Valentine’s Day we would spice it up by helping people discover a special date as well!”
BetaTastr is a subscription dining experience. Every month members are emailed a chosen restaurant with a story that delves into its rich history, explores its dishes and the story of the chef. BetaTastr works out a prix-fixe menu, akin to Restaurant Week, which highlights the restaurant’s signature dishes. The value of this special menu totals well over the $39/month BetaTastr diners are charged per month. Diners simply flash their BetaTastr card at the restaurant, receive a specially curated menu, eat and enjoy. BetaTastr is launching out of the Traction + Scale incubator run by CEO Richie Hecker. www.betatastr.com.
IVANA is launching the first artificial intelligence driven dating app. IVANA’a AI fuses cutting edge relationship science with visual data science to make matches that work. IVANA is founded by the former Chief Marriage Officer of one of the leading dating sites for marriage and the product lead for several apps which jumped to #1 in the App Store.
FED is the exclusive dining club where great food and great ideas come together to create amazing experiences. FED events are held at secret venues, and FED’s executive chef is known for making food that evokes a homemade, family style taste with the deliciousness of a Michelin Star restaurant. www.fedsocial.co
