MenuPages: Scope Out Menus Before You Eat

Last week, Partysugar asked if you like to read the menus before eating at new restaurants. I know I do: Especially if it's a reservation I've been looking forward to for a while, I'll often pore over a menu for days, thinking about what I might order.

Many restaurants publish menus on their web sites, but for the ones that don't, MenuPages is an excellent resource. This web site posts full menus for thousands of restaurants in eight metropolitan areas: New York, San Francisco, LA, Philly, Boston, Chicago, DC, and South Florida. You can look up restaurants by name or browse by cuisine and neighborhood. To ensure that its menus are up to date, the site takes submission directly from restaurants, and readers can also suggest joints they'd like to see featured. For why I love this web site,

Of course, many restaurants change their menus weekly or even monthly, but MenuPages tries to stay as real-time as possible. Often, the menu online is exactly the same as what you'll find while dining, and even when it isn't, I still love MenuPages. It gives me a great idea of the types of dishes served, not to mention a realistic representation of the prices.

If you don't live in one of the eight regions featured on MenuPages, I highly recommend consulting it the next time you travel. Have you guys used this site? If so, what do you think?

Looking up menus before I go to restaurants also helps in trying to stay healthy. If I know before I go, I won't be tempted by the fried deliciousness someone else orders :-)
