Downtown Punch Card Challenge

Our goal with this exciting challenge is to support these locally owned restaurants in downtown Manhattan during the pandemic when business has slowed. One way to show your support is to tip generously while participating in this contest. It is a wonderful way we can show our gratitude. Posting visits to social media are encouraged! See the below list of rules to learn more. 


Winners will be drawn between March 8th and 13th and announced on March 14th!
