BOSTON, November 12, 2018 – The Infatuation, the restaurant discovery platform, marked its arrival in Boston today, offering its one-of-a-kind editorial style to the city. Through entertaining and always honest reviews and guides, The Infatuation will help Bostonians find the best possible restaurants and bars for any situation.
For years, The Infatuation has heard from Boston-based fans across its platforms requesting guides and recommendations for the Greater Boston-area. The Infatuation differentiates itself as the definitive authority on dining in the cities it serves by using its transparent approach to restaurant discovery and exploration. The company’s editorial team dines anonymously, pays for its own meals, and provides readers with unbiased recommendations. In Boston, readers can expect The Infatuation’s signature “Hit List” covering the city’s best new restaurants, extensive individual restaurant reviews, helpful neighborhood guides, and original lists that tap into specific needs like planning a big group dinner or a date.
“We’ve heard requests for years to have The Infatuation come to Boston, so this is an exciting moment,” said Hillary Reinsberg, Editor-in-Chief, The Infatuation. “Boston’s restaurant scene is fantastic right now, and we’ve assembled a great local team to help the city sort through to discover the best of it. We can’t wait to build our local community over the coming months and years.”
In partnership with MINI USA and embracing their “More of What Matters” philosophy, The Infatuation will celebrate its local launch with giveaways to iconic Boston-centric experiences. Details about prizes and how to enter to win are available via its website, The Infatuation Boston Instagram and through its email newsletter.
Special for launch, The Infatuation will create special dining guides available at MINI dealerships throughout the Greater Boston area offering local tips such as “Restaurants in Boston with Easy Parking” and “Places Worth the Drive.” Each local MINI dealership will offer the first 10 guests at each area location beginning November 12th a $50 gift card to dine at select Infatuation-approved Boston restaurants. Additionally, MINI will be placing vertical indoor farming units from Farmshelf at local dealership locations. Produce grown in the units will be donated to Feeding America for support of food needs for the Boston community.
