My website, Tribeca Citizen, helps Tribecans determine whether new businesses are worth their time, money, and attention. Recently, an interesting new restaurant opened: It's called Atera, and it's getting great buzz. But I make so little money from Tribeca Citizen—far less than the time I put into it is worth—that it doesn't make financial sense for me to eat at every new restaurant that opens. I try, but when dinner is a $150 prix fixe per person, it really cuts into revenue! And in the past year I've paid handsomely to eat at Compose (Atera's predecessor), Brushstroke, Jungsik, and North End Grill! I don't take freebies—not that Atera has offered—so I'm asking you to help foot the bill. All I need is $300 to have dinner at Atera, although I'd gladly take more so I don't have to go alone. It's hard enough being the guy who takes photos of his food without being the guy alone who takes photos of his food. P.S. The photo of food I used somewhere on Kickstarter is by Nathan Rawlinson, and I'm using it courtesy of Atera.
