Not having to pay for what you're eating and drinking makes everything taste better.

To fill your belly and quench your thirst without shelling out any cash, consult our continuously updated list of complimentary bites and sips up for grabs around the city:

A slice of pie at HandCraft Kitchen & Cocktails

Order yourself a plate of mac and cheese or a bison burger at this Murray Hill gastropub on National Pi Day (March 14), and you won't have to pay for dessert: You'll get a free slice of — you guessed it — pie! Doors at 367 Third Ave. open at 4 p.m., and we recommend eating a light or late lunch that day, so you can claim your piece before the pie runs out. 

Burgers from Gasoline Grill

The Denmark-based burger joint — an under-the-radar spot until Bloomberg named it among the 27 best in the world last year — is handing out its signature roadside sandwiches for free at Grand Central Terminal next week. As part of a three-day pop-up at Chef Claus Meyer's Great Northern Food Hall, Gasoline Grill will give away a total of 1,000 free burgers from Friday, March 16 through Sunday, March 18. The grub is free, but you're encouraged to make a donation to Meyer's Melting Pot Foundation, which runs a paid culinary training program in Brownsville, if you like what you're eating. 

OddFellows vegan soft serve and prosecco at Seamore's

Sustainable seafood chain Seamore's ushers in its fourth location, this one in DUMBO (66 Water St.), with a "Welcome Aboard" brunch party on Sunday, March 18. The opening day festivities will feature a "Guppies Eat Free" kids menu for young'uns. Return for a poke and paella dinner that evening, and you'll score a complimentary glass of prosecco.
