Tasty Startups: Flavour
The Craving it Satisfies
Find great restaurants by searching neighborhoods, cuisine or notable feature.
Why it has a winning recipe
Everyone has different tastes, which is why it’s been so hard to find a winning restaurant discovery app. What makes a recommendation trustworthy? High scores in a ratings system? Overwhelming crowd support? An acclaimed critic’s glowing review?
We’ve all gone to a place that people have insisted we try and left wondering what the fuss was about. It’s tough to find a consistent, reliable source of recommendations.
Too many dining options, scores of questionable reviews, blurry or downright dreadful pictures… Appetite killers abound online. Creating a balanced plate of information, discovery and food porn is a tall order for an app chef.
Flavour has an attractive recipe for helping diners find the best place to match individual tastes.
Currently an iOS mobile app that covers the restaurant scenes in New York, Chicago, and San Francisco, Flavour sorts out restaurants according to neighborhood (convenient if you know where you plan to be, where you’d like to go), cuisine (efficient if you have a craving), or other special characteristics (helpful if you have dietary concerns or you’re on the lookout for a great bar scene, etc.).
Flavour lists restaurants based on a fine cocktail of praise from respected critics, industry experts, locals, bloggers and “its own intelligently sourced finds.” And it looks like the app has impeccable taste.
Searches serve up a mix of award-winning establishments, popular destinations, kitchens run by notable chefs, and even hidden gems. What’s more, a minimalistic design and easy navigation make Flavour a pleasure to use.
You can read descriptions of restaurants, explore menus, check map locations as well as make reservations – yet the app never feels cluttered.
I prefer my food on white plates, showcasing the food and leaving ingredients no place to hide, so Flavour suits my aesthetic sensibilities perfectly.
Solid choices, graceful design – Flavour makes me hungry. I can’t wait to dine out again. What more could you ask of a restaurant app? Learn more at getflavour.com or download the app here. Give it a try the next time you need help deciding where to dine – and hope it arrives in your city soon.
