Looking for Parking During New York City Restaurant Week? There’s an App for That


New York City Restaurant Week runs from July 22 through August 16 and foodies from all over the suburbs will be trekking into the city for good deals on great food. Nearly 300 participating restaurants will offer three-course lunches for $25 per person, and three-course dinners for $38.

Good bargains aside, sometimes that trek into the city is just too much effort. Traffic, crowds and parking are enough to turn off an unwilling diner. Fortunately, there’s Pango, a new mobile parking app that can help relieve some of the stress of getting to your restaurant destination.

Pango has partnered with Imperial Garages in three Manhattan locations: 315 East 40th Street, 212-214 East 47th Street and 165 East 77th Street. With Pango on your phone, you can find the address of the garage, initiate your parking meter, notify the garage when you want your car ready for pick up and pay for all of your parking.
