When the iPhone Apps were released back in June, I did a search in the App Store for "wine." What I came up with, at the time, was UrbanSpoon. I immediately downloaded it and it’s still my favorite application.

All you do is choose from any number of filters, including type of food, specific location, and price. Lock in your selections, then shake the phone. Yep, shake it like a Magic 8 Ball.


The result is a listing of restaurants that meet your criteria. This is a fantastic, random way to try new restaurants. It’s also a great way to settle one of my least favorite arguments: What do you want to eat?

Well, I hadn’t realized that UrbanSpoon was more than my favorite iPhone application. Then I’m reading a winemedineme post and I see the little spoon icon at the end. Lo and behold, UrbanSpoon is a pretty nifty restaurant review site as well.

Whenever you see the UrbanSpoon
Uslogomini within one of my posts (generally having to do with a restaurant) or one of winemedineme‘s posts for that matter, click the spoon icon. You’ll learn more about the restaurant, including critic reviews and information about price, menus, and so on. There are even blog reviews on the site. You can make comments about the restaurant as well, but we’d love you to make the comments on our blogs because we’re stingy like that. 1090_winking_smiley

UrbanSpoon is just another fun intersection between Web 2.0 and food and wine. So enjoy the social media aspect of being a foodie!
