$20 for a Deck of Restaurant Gift Cards ($43 Value)
The Foodie Nashville deck contains 52 gift cards, each of which grants diners $10 off a purchase of $30 or more at a different noncorporate restaurant or café in the Nashville area.
Foodie Nashville urges diners to explore the scope of Nashville's culinary offerings by presenting them with a deck of $10 gift certificates to 52 local restaurants. Although the deck features a variety of cuisines from eateries located in neighborhoods throughout the city, it is exclusively devoted to locally run favorites and little-known gems. The 2013 edition highlights Bella Napoli Pizzeria's pies, baked inside a brick oven stuffed with smoldering Tennessee oak and Wayne Gretzky rookie cards; the traditional and contemporary creations of Tamarind Indian Bistro; and the slow-cooked barbecue of Stone House Q, a restaurant the Tennessean praised for its "real hands-on dedication to the craft." Foodie Nash donates a portion of every sale to No Kid Hungry, an organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger by teaching families to prepare healthful, affordable meals.
Foodie SF Peninsula Edition
Foodie SF Peninsula Edition encourages exploration of local chef-driven or owner-operated restaurants with its packs of $10 gift cards. Culinary adventurers explore the peninsula area's diverse food scene with 52 gift cards to restaurants such as 231 Ellsworth, a Michelin-recommended eatery with an 800-bottle wine list; La Hacienda, which has been cooking healthy Mexican cuisine with lean meats since 1980; and Sakoon, an Indian restaurant with whimsical modern decor in downtown Mountain View. The cards come inside an orange box emblazoned with crossed spoons that bear the signature checked pattern of a racing flag, spurring eaters to race forth to restaurants or build their own pit crews out of cutlery.
