How does it work?
Easy! You tell us where you’re going (or if you just want to try some new local spots), your 5 favorite restaurants or bars, and one of our experts will review all your info and put together a list of 5 new places he or she thinks you’ll love. No algorithms, no bots, just a real person taking the time to put a thoughtful list of recommendations together, just for you.
Does it cost anything?
Nope! It’s totally free.
What if I don’t like your tips?
We’ll try our best, but we know we won’t always get it right on the first try. If our first pass doesn’t hit the mark, let us know and we’ll do our best to get you a fresh round of tips you’ll love.
Do restaurants pay you to recommend them?
Absolutely not! We don’t have any business relationships with any of the restaurants we suggest. We believe that people should be able to get honest, personalized recommendations where they don’t have sift through “sponsored” content. No pay-to-play here!
What is Etch?
Etch is an app that gives you a personalized way to experience local places by letting you quickly and easily save your favorite spots, and share them with your trusted network. Friends can also help you discover new places by sharing with you the ones they know you'll love.
Do I have to download Etch to get my tips?
Yes. Because it takes some time to put together a curated list of tips for each person, we ask that you download our app, Etch so we can preload our suggested spots and notes into the app for you. That way you can share them with your friends, add your own notes, and pull all of them up on a map so you can see which ones are nearby. Just like Etch Tips, Etch is 100% free!
