The official dish on Zagat news and views
A new Zagat for finding the very best places
July 29, 2013
Today we’re launching a new Zagat
and mobile app for
that puts the very best restaurants and nightspots right at your fingertips. And for the first time, our trusted Zagat ratings and reviews are available for free with no registration required.
The new Zagat features the latest news and video content from our expert local editors, curated lists (think “
10 Hidden Restaurant Gardens Around DC
”), powerful search and map-based browsing to help you find the local gems.
These days, the challenge in deciding where to go is not about about a lack of information or user reviews, but finding accurate information and
opinions so you can quickly make informed decisions. Through our digital products—and the Google products you use every day like the new
Google Maps for Mobile
—you can rely on Zagat’s curated lists and summary reviews to cut through the clutter so you can find the perfect spot.
The new Zagat covers restaurants and nightlife in nine cities, and over the coming months we plan to expand to 50 U.S. and international destinations and cover shopping, hotels and other places of interest. We know that many of you are eager to have continued access to our content in these markets, so in advance of this expansion, we'll soon make our existing ratings and reviews available on Zagat.com.
For more than 34 years we’ve been surveying passionate locals about the places that matter to them most. This is the foundation on which Zagat was built—and we hope that through our featured surveys on Zagat.com, you’ll continue to share your opinions with us as you rate and review the places you visit.
