Widespread fears of coronavirus have negatively affected the business of some U.S. restaurants specializing in Chinese food. Restaurant owners and workers in New York City’s Chinatown reported that business had recently dropped 50 to 70 percent, according to The New York Times. Meanwhile, restaurant booking and rewards platform SEARED noted a 15% decline in reservations for Chinese restaurants. SEATED is a company that offers empty seats in restaurants, and diners get rewarded with gift cards by reserving them.
In an effort to combat this downturn and to support local businesses, SEATED is offering an extra 5% on diner rewards for all Chinese restaurants on SEATED in New York. (Diners receive a portion of their spend back in SEATED rewards, which can be redeemed for gift cards for brands like Sephora, Nordstrom, Uber and others.) A few of these restaurants include South of The Clouds in Greenwich Village, Tri Dim Shanghai on the Upper East Side and Pig Heaven on the Upper East Side.
