Let’s Order Something “Off The Menu”

There’s something about going out to a restaurant and ordering an item that’s off the menu that makes you feel special and in the know. Now, there’s an app that makes it easy to get excited about going out to eat.  It’s called, Off The Menu and it was the brainchild of a Canadian who settled down in the City of Angels 14 years ago.

Trailblazer millennial Lawrence Longo left Toronto and moved to Los Angeles when he was 21 to pursue a career in film.  He quickly found himself hanging out with the tastemakers of the town and every time he went out, his friends always ordered something off the menu.

A few months ago, Longo launched his app, Off The Menu using his personal notes from countless nights out and curated research.  Turns out there are secret items at nearly every restaurant from Chick-fil-A to Nobu.  And, with Off The Menu you don’t have to search hard to find them.  From Los Angeles to New York, Austin, Boston and even Ottawa to name a few, hundreds of restaurants in cities across the country and beyond are included in the app.

The app’s biggest group of downloaders?  Female millenials.  So… who wants to go out to eat?  I’m ordering something Off The Menu

Note: Lawrence Longo will be a guest speaker at Tech Week 2015, this Friday, November 13th
