Eat like a Local

If you happen to be visiting Tompkins County New York and would like to scope out some places to have lunch or dinner. You can check out the Eat Like a Local online app put together by my office mate Svetla.

The idea for the app started with a map request from the Department of Emergency Response who wanted to direct people to places to eat when they come in town for training and other events. Svetla bumped it up a notch by creating this app that you can run on your smartphone. You can type an address or pick a spot on the map and get all the places to eat within a specified distance (1-10 miles to start) You can adjust the slider for mileage. The results are on the right with the distance to the eating establishment. A link to the website of the restaurant is also provided so you can check out the menu, today’s specials, or order in if you like.

Feel free to check it out and send some feedback.
