Check Mate

Never wait for a bill again with Cover, now serving NYC


If there's one thing that can ruin an evening out, it's the awkward dance of getting the check.
Maybe they think you want more time to make eyes at your date over your third glass of Barolo, when you're really just counting down the clock to nightcap time.
Enter Cover, your new best friend.
It's an app now serving NYC restaurants that allows you to pay for your check without having to ask for it. You sign up, enter your billing info, and you're set. 
As for the restaurants? We're not talking about some rinky-dink chains.
Top-notch spots including Carbone, Charlie Bird, Empellón Cocina, Parm, Northern Spy, and El Toro Blanco have all signed on, with more to come. 
Just let the restaurant know at any time that you're paying with Cover. You can even split the check between all of your dining companions without getting that murderous stare from your server.

Or just walk out like you own the joint.


Price: Free, available for iOS now here; Android coming soon
