New York Media Sells MenuPages

New York Media, parent of New York magazine, has sold to Seamless, a food delivery site based in Manhattan. The addition of the site will give Seamless access to 40,000 restaurant partners and menus, and increase its reach to over 50 cities across the globe.

Financial terms of the deal aren’t available, but this is obviously a good move for Seamless. When we can’t figure out where we want to eat, the first place we go is MenuPages. It’s got everything you want in a clean, easy-to-use format. Unlike Yelp, people don’t go overboard on their reviews either. News flash for Yelp users: No one cares.

In a note to Seamless staffers, Jonathan Zabusky, the site’s CEO, expressed considerable excitement about the acquisition. “Together, we will provide our customers with an invaluable resource.” wrote Zabusky. “This is an incredibly exciting time for our company, and I would like to thank you all for your continued hard work and dedication.”

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.
