Our team loves swapping stories of how Foodspotting has drawn us into restaurants we might never have thought to try otherwise: Pie Shakes led me to Chile Pies and Ice Cream. Red Velvet Fried Chicken led Chris to American Cupcake. But whenever some amazing dish piqued our interest, we found ourselves looking for a few more answers: What else is good here? What do friends recommend? How much does it cost?
So with these questions in mind, we reimagined the place page in Foodspotting. The New Place Page makes it easier than ever to satisfy those Foodspotting-induced cravings by putting recommendations, ratings and reservations at your fingertips. When you look up a restaurant on Foodspotting (simply tap a restaurant name in Explore or look it up using the searchable Places tab), whenever possible, we'll show you:
PERSONAL RECOMMENDATIONS Based on your tastes, for example, "Try the Truffled Deviled Eggs because you're a Deviled Egg Expert!"
FRIENDS' RECOMMENDATIONS See what friends and experts like Anthony Bourdain love wherever you go.
REVIEWS VIA YELP Find out more by looking up restaurant level ratings, reviews and details like price and ambiance.
MENUS VIA SINGLEPLATFORM See full menus and prices for nearly 400,000 restaurants.
RESERVATIONS VIA OPENTABLE Book a date with those deviled eggs without leaving Foodspotting.
Beyond this handy dashboard-like Place Page and being 10x more beautiful throughout, there's even more to love in Foodspotting 3.5. Since we launched our redesign in February, we've introduced:
THE NEW PROFILE If you are what you eat, the new Foodspotting profile paints a better picture than ever. Whether you're a self proclaimed dumplings or milkshake expert, friends can now see the titles you've earned and find out what you recommend in each category.
VISUAL MAPS We've made exploring dishes via the map more visual and easier to use.
LOCATION PICKER You could always change your location by moving the map, now you can explore great dishes anywhere in the world, from Uzbekistan to Easter Island.
JAPANESE LANGUAGE Japan is where Foodspotting began, and we're celebrating our roots by introducing Foodspotting in Japanese!
We want Foodspotting to become the picture menu for every restaurant, everywhere in the world. This next iteration of Foodspotting brings us one step closer to that goal, but we couldn't have gotten this far without almost 3 million foodspotters like you! Thanks for being part of our story and spotting over 1.75 million dishes. Keep wanting, loving and cataloguing your favorite dishes wherever you go!
