TasteSpace.com – New York Bars And Restaurants
With Yelp, MenuPages, and CitySearch in the online restaurant search engine space, is there room for another player? Yes, according to TasteSpace.com, a site aiming to serve both consumers and restaurants/bars.
Since launching last year to serve the New York marketplace, the site has been making waves as both a destination search and community portal for consumers and a marketing tool for restaurants/bars. Its content aggregation tools allow consumers to peruse reviews from food enthusiasts as well as commentary from across the blogosphere. Currently boasting more than 7,300 establishments in New York, the site gives hungry New Yorkers the full plate of culinary options from Tribeca to the Triborough Bridge. With unique features such as “Take Me Out”, which gives consumers recommendations based on a cross section of search criteria (from strictly professional nights out with colleagues to first dates), and “Tastrix”, which gives recommendation yearning for a specific dish (from mushroom risotto to escargot) , TasteSpace differentiates itself from its competitors by giving consumers a uniquely personal experience. For the venues themselves, the site offers rich easily, manageable profiles that many of the city’s leading establishments (e.g. Nobu, 49 Grove and Pure Food and Wine) are using to market themselves in the same way that musicians have leveraged MySpace and Facebook. This combination of business goals is how the company hopes to catch on with both audiences and ultimately be the industry standard in the industry.
