Text Rex is an SMS-based service powered by The Infatuation staff (not an actual dinosaur).

All you have to do is send us a message and we will text you back and solve all of your restaurant finding problems. It’s free, and it’s #notabot.

Because Text Rex is a) awesome and b) in high demand, it’s currently in “beta” which basically just means it’s not perfect yet, so be nice to us.

  1. Hey there, thanks for signing up. The way this works is pretty simple- you can text this number & ask us for a restaurant rec anytime. Looking to impress a date? Mix up your midtown lunch situation? Casual sushi dinner? Give it a try, we're here to help. What can we help you with? Go ahead, ask us anything.
  2. This is awesome! Ok cool, need some help from you.
  3. We’re humans so talk to us like you would talk to a friend, assuming you have those.
  4. Of course. What's up?
  5. Be specific! The more information we have, the better our suggestions.
  6. Need a great Italian spot downtown on the west side that would be perfect for a double date for friends visiting from out of town. Anything south of Union Square works.
  7. Got it. When's this date happening? We have some perfect spots in mind but last minute reservations are tough
  8. Ask us for help ahead of time if possible. A lot of our favorite spots book up quickly
  9. It's not until next month so we have some time to plan.
  10. Just what we like to hear. Check out L’Artusi - one of our favorite Italian places in the city. Excellent food and a great place to impress out of towners. Call to make a reservation today.
