This means one thing to us: Time to put Yelp and Urbanspoon on the last screen of our iPhone, where they’ll probably be forgotten.
Before we go on any further, we’d like to note we live in New York City and eat out about four to five times a week. We also have vegetarian/vegan tendencies.
Why are we excited about this app? It’s well designed and suits our needs better than the competition.
Urbanspoon, on the other hand, we’ve generally enjoyed using. However, to get to menus on Urbanspoon, we have to hop, skip, and jump through the application to land at menus.
The ones on MenuPages are much easier to find, and there’s nothing more important — to us anyway — than knowing what’s on the menu of a restaurant. Especially if we have picky eaters in tow, which we often do.
MenuPages is owned by New York Media, which publishes New York magazine. Hopefully the app integrates New York‘s extensive reviews down the road. We’d like to be able access the critics’ picks. In a city with thousands of restaurants, critics’ picks help narrow the field.
The application is free. It’s being supported by Capital One to start. It will highlight Capital One branch locations in select cities.
