FoodDigger focuses on developing a community for sharing food reviews and providing an easy way to find the right restaurant for each individual's tastes. Founded by Los Angeles food lovers who would spend an hour debating where to eat and felt unable to find reliable reviews, FoodDigger seeks to attract fellow food enthusiasts to share their experiences in a way that surfaces the best of all types of cuisines. Approaching the problem from several angles, FoodDigger helps users determine which reviewers have tastes similar to theirs, surfaces people knowledgeable about certain cuisines as Cuisine Experts, and provides a 100 point rating scale for more differentiation amongst ratings.
FoodDigger's Unique Features:
FoodDigger offers a Flavor Match feature that compares any user's flavor profile (created upon registration) with that of another user's, as well as, a side by side comparison of both users' ratings for the same restaurants. Recognizing that there is more to finding restaurant recommendations than just a review and a score, Flavor Match allows users to see whose taste sensibilities sync up with their own.
FoodDigger surfaces Cuisine Experts by creating a system for members to recognize other members for their knowledge of a particular cuisine by giving trust votes. People with the most trust votes climb up the recognition ladder and become Cuisine Experts. Restaurants rated and reviewed by Cuisine Experts provide a unique way to receive quality recommendations.
FoodDigger features a 100 point rating scale to make restaurant ratings more intuitive and differentiated. This avoids the problem of trying to figure out which 4 ½ star restaurant is better than the other. People rate restaurants for taste, service, and vibe, providing a fuller picture of the dining experience.
FoodDigger injects into the online world the concept of getting restaurant recommendations from a trusted source so that all food enthusiasts can better reap the benefits of this information.
FoodDigger is a Los Angeles based online restaurant review community that helps food enthusiasts simply eat well. Launching initially in Los Angeles, the company is rapidly expanding to include San Francisco, New York and other major cities. To learn more please visit http://www.fooddigger.com.
