Launched this April, Tabelog aims to bring high quality reviews of restaurants in New York City to food lovers, enlisting the help of top food bloggers, critics, and industry experts across the five boroughs.
From a business lunch to a date night, Tabelog is the place to learn about restaurants in New York. A typical restaurant review on Tabelog has multiple paragraphs of information and photos of the decor, menus, and of course the food. Food experts review everything from their favorite dish and how it was prepared to what desserts they recommend. You can also learn what to expect of restaurants, how to dress and sometimes even the history of the restaurants and the chef. If you want to impress at dinner, these reviews are second only to eating there itself. Tabelog calculates its restaurant ranking in line with an original algorithm based on both user reviews and point-based evaluations. Meaning you can find the restaurants rated most highly by food experts by area or by type of cuisine.
