The Only Restaurant Website You’ll Ever Need

300px-restaurantI recently stumbled upon Urbanspoon.com when searching for directions to a new restaurant where I was meeting a friend for lunch. Wow, what a find!

It’s a one-stop-shop for all things a foodie would appreciate – it includes all the relevant info like location, map, phone number, price range, and style of food, but I particularly love that they show all available critic reviews, from newspapers, magazines, websites, and the like. You can also see any blog posts about the restaurant and a list of user reviews submitted at Urbanspoon. Talk about know before you go!

The website also features lots of “Best Restaurants” lists in fun & unusual categories – BYOB, Cheap Eats, Free WiFi, and Gluten-Free Friendly restaurants, to name a few. The number of restaurants covered seems pretty robust for the metro area where I live, and even still pretty good when I searched for the more rural area where my mom lives. If you don’t live close enough to one of the major metro areas listed, you can search by state and then find your city for a more specific list.

Get Urbanspoon to go with free apps for iPhone, Blackberry and Droid. I haven’t road-tested this one on my BB (my Curve is woefully lacking space for apps) so you’re on your own there. Let me know if it’s awesome!
