BK startup app helps foodies discover restaurant deals

Posted: Updated:
BROOKLYN -

Spotluck, an app startup in Brooklyn, is helping people discover deals at local restaurants.

The app works like a game, giving users one free spin a day which offers them savings at a restaurant in the area. 

Spotluck recently rose to the number one dinning app in the iTunes app store, according to co-founder and CEO Cherian Thomas. 

Whichever local restaurant the wheel stops on could grant users up to 35 percent off their tab.

The app's real-time discounts are determined by things like time of day, location and weather.

About 100 restaurants in Brooklyn partnered with Spotluck.
