The Glam Foodie’s Trio of the Week- focuses on the lifestyle elements surrounding Sip, Chat, Chow. It’s a weekly curation of “3″ – fabulous people, places and things designed to feature fashion, tech, gadgets, art, entertaining, culture, travel and events.

This week’s trio is inspired by “Luxe Dining for Less”. Now you don’t have to wait for Restaurant Week to get deals on dining.

Calling all Deal Hunters!! Following the trend of Groupon-like businesses, these web-based services for the foodie community are designed to provide “Luxe Dining for Less”! Now you can Sip, Chat, Chow for a fraction of the price.

1. The folks from Gilt bring us Gilt City- where you can get exclusive deals for up to 70% off from local businesses. Deals are available in limited quantities for a limited time. NY, Miami, Boston, Chicago, LA and San Francisco residents can enjoy these fantastic deals today.

2. VillageVines- Offers discounts at high end restos. VillageVines lets its members make reservations at select restaurants online, like OpenTable. However, it charges $10 per reservation, in exchange for across-the-board discounts (generally 25%-30%), which are automatically deducted from the check. Participating restaurants offer up a fixed number of tables per night.

3. Blackboard Eats- Blackboard Eats is a service which sends you discount opportunities via email for restaurants in New York, LA and San Francisco. The discounts are for legit places you’d probably eat at even sans discount, and the promotions tend to be 30% off your entire check with very limited restrictions.
