Zagat Seeks Avid Eaters to Vote on NYC Restaurants

Looking to tout that great meal you had last week? Want to warn a fellow foodie about lackluster service? Vote now in Zagat’s New York City Restaurants survey at for your chance to be quoted in the annual guide.

Based on the idea that the shared experiences of thousands of avid diners are more reliable than just one or two critics, Zagat has become the world’s leading provider of user-generated, survey-based restaurant information. Last year, a record 41,604 New Yorkers voiced their opinions by reviewing over 3,000 restaurants in the five boroughs.

Diners are asked to separately rate Food, Decor and Service and estimate the cost of the restaurants they’ve visited in the past year. They are also asked to provide witty and insightful comments about their experiences. Those who complete the survey before May 6, 2012, will receive a free copy of the New York City Restaurants Survey when it is published later this year.

Known as the “burgundy bible,” Zagat Survey is the world’s most trusted source for consumer-generated survey information. With a worldwide network of surveyors, Zagat rates and reviews restaurants, hotels, nightlife, movies, music, golf, shopping and a range of other entertainment categories and is lauded as the “most up-to-date,” “comprehensive” and “reliable” guide, published on all platforms. Zagat content is available to consumers wherever and whenever they need it: on on Zagat’s mobile applications and in book form. In September of 2011, Zagat was acquired by Google Inc.
