Making up your mind when ordering at a restaurant can be stressful, especially if one of your multiple personalities is a vegan, and you hate him. For something that'll take the indecision out of ordering things you definitely won't hate, TastedMenu, now out of beta.
From a Harvard Business grad tired of
telling people he went to a "small school in Cambridge" sifting through restaurant write-ups that have nothing to do with food, TM's a Brookline-based site that skips silly words entirely and lets you find/rate just the best dishes on the menu. Get started by either briefly perusing an FB-like feed (likes this!) of recent dish reviews or jumping straight to the searchable action and answering one of two questions: "What's good to eat at...?" and "Where can I find the best...Dishes, Ingredients, or Cuisines?". After selecting your fave epicurean haunt (by cuisine, price, or 'hood) or Moroccan pastry (Kaab el ghzal!), TM uses wizard science to scan its growing database of 6000 menu items at over 1250 Hub restaurants and pull up reviews/pics for those with the best rankings. Assuming you have strong opinions and a camera on your RAZR, you can also create a profile page and compete for a place on the reviewer leaderboard, or just link to folks on FB/Twitter and "follow the dining adventures of friends", though who wants to watch Ross get a cup of coffee from SOMEWHERE OTHER THAN CENTRAL PERK?!?!
And so you don't have to fire up your MacBook on every date, TM's about to release a free iPhone app that'll let you snap, comment, and upload reviews (or just search the menu) without ever leaving the comfort of the table, though it just got a little more uncomfortable considering your lame personality switched out your veal chop for seitan.
