Scenes From the Launch of Rekky, an App That's Like Yelp for Cool People

Last night, a well-dressed crowd of tech, media, and food folks came out to celebrate the launch of Rekky, a new mobile app that's basically like Yelp for cool people. The brainchild of Muhammad Saigol, the app is a social network that lets users follow friends and interesting people they may want to be friends with to find recommendations (or "rekkies") for restaurants, bars, hotels, clubs and other hang-out spots that are culled from users' Instagram, Facebook and Foursquare accounts along with curated lists from some of Rekky's members with more boldfaced names. Last night the launch, which was co-hosted by Harley Viera-Newton and The New Potato's Danielle and Laura Kosann, included drinks and snacks and an intimate dinner afterwards prepared by Chef Nini Nguyen (formerly of Eleven Madison Park) whose dishes, in the spirit of Rekky, gave shoutouts to some of her favorite NYC restaurants including The NoMad, Del Posto and Russ & Daughters. Take a peek at photos from the evening, below, and go download the app HERE.
