Ardore.com is a local restaurant finder servicing New Jersey and New York, and it is very easy to use: decide whether you want to find restaurants by area or by cuisine you feel like eating (Italian, sushi, French, etc), and the site will produce a list of recommended places to visit.
Most of the restaurants include their full menus and also details on daily specials, plus you can learn in what price range the venue falls into, and what payment methods they accept. Some restaurants even include media, like pictures and videos; comments are open for all listed facilities, so you can come back and rant if the service was bad or the meal was cold, or praise if it was much better than you had expected. But this is what most local restaurant directories offer: what’s really different and cool about Ardore.com is that you can make your reservations directly through the site, without having to pick up the phone or write an email; but there’s even more: you can place orders for some of the restaurants directly through the site so that your food will be waiting for takeout. A really neat service!
