Today Groupon unveiled its most delectable event of the year, Taste of Groupon: a food-focused collection filled with top restaurants across the nation. Groupon will also be donating one meal to Feeding America for every Food and Drink offer purchased in the collection, with the goal of reaching 500,000 meals donated. Whether it’s an exquisite charcuterie spread or the most succulent burger around, diners are helping fight hunger with every purchase.

“Exploring the local restaurant scene is the absolute best way to experience all that a city has to offer,” said Jay Klauminzer, vice president of local deals, Groupon. “Our Taste of Groupon collection showcases the top places to indulge across the country, and even better, we are matching every single purchase with a donated meal to Feeding America with the goal of reaching 500,000 meals.”

Some of the top spots include:

  • Tulsi in New York: Michelin-starred Midtown restaurant Time called “the best Indian restaurant outside India”
  • Graham Elliot Bistro in Chicago: multiple James Beard Award-nominee and MasterChef judge Graham Elliot relies on seasonal ingredients to create unexpected dishes
  • Valentino in Santa Monica: one of the premier Italian restaurants, founded by Piero Selvaggio in 1972; in addition to the Michelin stars they earned, Valentino has also accrued 12 James Beard Award nominations and two wins
  • Fig & Olive in New York: French restaurateur looks to the Riviera and the Mediterranean to inspire the menu at this Meatpacking-District gem
