Dining & Accommodations
There is no shortage of places to eat delicious, interesting cuisine in New York City. However, navigating through all the options can be overwhelming. Whether you want to eat in or dine out, sites like Zagat, Yelp, Open Table, and GrubHub can help you make the right choice for your group.
Zagat– Zagat provides consumer survey-generated reviews. Zagat surveyors are frequent, knowledgeable consumers in each of the categories they rate. Their experiences provide swift guidance for a wide range of leisure activities. Zagat Survey’s unique approach separately rates the distinct qualities of a restaurant (Food, Decor, Service and Cost), hotel (Rooms, Service, Dining and Public Facilities) and other leisure categories based on a signature 30-point scale.
Yelp– Yelp is an online urban city guide that helps people find cool places to eat, shop, drink, relax and play, based on the informed opinions of a vibrant and active community of locals in the know.
Open Table– The OpenTable website provides a fast, efficient way to find available tables that meet desired criteria for cuisine, price and location at a specified time. Reservations are free and can be made around the clock. The website is directly connected to the thousands of computerized reservation systems at OpenTable restaurants.
GrubHub– With over 5,000 delivery restaurants in Manhattan and Brooklyn alone, NYC has to be considered the capital for food delivery. And GrubHub.com is one of the few places that shows all of the restaurants in the New York area that deliver to you.
