Tax Day Relief Deals In NYC

by Rachelle Hruska · April 15, 2009

Do you need some Tax Day relief like me? The government may not be cutting you any slack these days, but at least the following restaurants will:

Bar Blanc Bistro: It’s the final day that Bar Blanc Bistro will be offering 50% off all bar menu items and alcohol (excluding bottles of wine) at the bar between 6-8pm.  We hit this special up last week and it’s not to be missed.

B.R. Guest: 15% Off Gift Cards Until the 15th! You deserve a break… B.R. Guest Restaurants is offering 15% off Gift Cards purchased online starting TODAY - Monday, April 6, 2009 through tax day, Wednesday, April 15, 2009.

Chick-fil-A: You already know that we’d kill to have more Chick-fil-A’s in Manhattan. For now, we have to pretend to be in college and head to the food court in NYU’s Weinstein Center. I guess we’ll tell you the Chick-fil-A deal anyways, even though it’s probably not being offered at our one and only location. Visit a participating restaurant April 15 and hang onto your receipt. The “Tax Relief Day Special” lets you return before April 30 to receive the same order for free.

Energy Kitchen (all locations): Drop by the local chain on April 15 between noon and 2 p.m. for a free sandwich with a drink purchase.

Golosi: Golosi opened last week at 125 Park Ave. between 41st and 42nd streets to a good amount of buzz. They are offering a special offer all day (11am-9pm) on April 15. Buy 1 scoop of gelato, get one free, buy pizza (3-inch minimum), get same amount free.

McCormick & Schmick’s: As part of its Tax Relief Day promotion, McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurants will offer on Wednesday a $10.40 entree menu as well as a Bottom Line Drink Selection.

McDonald’s: Buy one Big Mac, get a second for 15¢.

One if By Land, Two if By Sea: Extending a 50% Family & Friends Discount on Tax Day to all guests on the email list (or guests who know to say “Friends & Family Discount” when making a reservation by phone). This is a pretty unbelievable deal — 50% off all foodand beverages both at the bar and in the dining room. Call 212-255-8649 for resy.

Papa John’s: Papa John’s once again provides last-minute filers, or “pro-crust-inators,” a “1040? online deal. Now through midnight on April 15th, consumers can cash in on this tax break by entering “1040? as a promotional code at for a large, original crust pizza with up to three toppings for just $10.40.

Patina Restaurant Group: (from Eater’s Dealfeed) From April 15th to May 15th, select Patina Restaurant Group restaurants in New York will offer 20% off all food and beverage as part of its “Tax Relief Program”. Here’s the coupon you have to print and present.
