MenuPages for Android Launches

New York Media, parent of New York magazine, has launched a MenuPages app for Android. Much like the MenuPages website and the iPhone app, the Android app allows users to search for specific foods, names of restaurants, etc., that can then be sorted even further into all sorts of categories, including price and what features are highlighted at each restaurant.

The app contains information on about 30,000 restaurants, and is available for free in the Android marketplace.

The best part about MenuPages is that it centers its attention on the concrete stuff – like the menus, locations and phone numbers of restaurants. But if you’re into reading food reviews by people you don’t know (Laura says the chicken at 2 West is to die for!) then you can do that too.
