Zagat Review

I love going out to eat, but sometimes it can be difficult to find a place where you enjoy the food. I live in NYC and there are 20,000 restaurants on every block, so it can become overwhelming when it comes to choosing restaurants. I've been to a lot of restaurants recently that I didn't like so much. I was fortunate enough to receive a copy of Zagat's 2010 NYC Restaurant Guide and I'm sure this will help me!


What is Zagat?
Zagat Survey® is a business based on a simple premise – that the shared opinions of thousands of avid consumers with real experiences are inherently more accurate than the opinions of just one or two critics. Through our guides, we give people the power of a collective voice and the information to make smart decisions.

The first Zagat guide was published 30 years ago based on our core belief – that the shared opinions of thousands of avid consumers with real experiences are inherently more accurate than the opinions of just one or two critics. This New York City Restaurants guide was an instant success and quickly became “The gastronomic bible” (Wall Street Journal) and a #1 bestseller in the travel category.

Today, Zagat Survey® has expanded to cover over 100 countries worldwide and a range of leisure activities including dining, travel, nightlife, shopping, golf, movies and music. Zagat represents a vast community with over 375,000 consumers participating in our surveys each year.


According to The Today Show, Zagat is the most trusted guide! The Associate Press deems it "The world's most influential travel and food guide.”

It's really great to be able to own a book for a specific place in the world that lists all the great restaurant options you can choose from. I like that it lists how expensive a restaurant is, but also breaks up restaurants into different food categories, and also areas of NYC. The organization of this book is great. You don't have to spend a lot of time looking for something when you're on the go and hungry. It's also updated yearly which is important, as to weed out restaurants that are no longer in operation. At the time of publication, everything is current and relevant which is important.
