Zagat Dining Guides

Image placeholder title

Nothing ruins a good vacation like a bad, overpriced meal. Thanks to Zagatand Zagat.com you're never far away from an insider recommendation. Here in NYC before we try out a new spot we grab our guide and check the ratings. There's also guides for San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, and on and on.


Started by a husband and wife team in 1979, Zagat guides are updated each year. The guides are compiled after Zagat holds a survey. Thousands of avid consumers (and harsh critics) weigh in on their dining experiences to provide a review that represents a "collective voice." Diners across the nation appreciate knowing about slow service or lack luster deserts before sitting down to order. Each restaurant is given three ratings 0-30: Food, Decor, Service. Plus you're given an average cost (average price of dinner plus one drink and tip).

For parents, there are specific kid-friendly notes (and I concur--Landmarc should be on this list). Momtrends thinks a restaurant guide is a must-have for any city vacation. Consider it an investment in happiness. Online memberships start at $4.95 for a month and most smartphones have downloadable apps.
