$25 for a $50 certificate to Matyson

OpenTable Spotlight (looks like their answer to restaurant .com and Groupon) is offering a $50 printable certificate to Matyson for $25.

I've always had great meals at Matyson, but for whatever reason haven't been back in a while; this is just the incentive I need!

  1. Agreed. Matyson has been a favorite for years, but I haven't been in a while. This is a great deal. I hope this new program from opentable includes other equally great places.

    1. But what is the "deal" -- I LOVE Matyson. Is it $50 worth of food on your bill minus $25?

        The way I'm reading it, you are buying a $50 gift cert for $25. To me that means I will be able to use that $50 gift cert at Matyson. But since that gift cert cost me $25, I'm really only saving $25.

          I read it the same way, and bought one. If I find out otherwise I'll let you guys know.
          Though the sale is only up until the end of the day, so I guess it will be too late by then.

          So don't forget to book today if interested.

            You don't have to make your reservation or dine there today. The offer that expires today is only for buying the gift cert which is then good for one year.

              What is the other way to read it? These deals all work pretty much the same way. You are basically getting half off up to a certain amount. I like them.

        2. Thanks. It was on my email from Open Table.
          I had lunch at Matyson recently and it was great. $25 off is a good deal.

          1. Thanks for the heads-up!!! I just bought 4. I've been to Matyson two times in the past month and was already planning to go again next week, so perfect timing... Their $45 tasting menu is already a deal. At 1/2 off it's a steal.

            1. Thanks, KatChow! This one didn't cross my radar screen :)
