Simmer (formerly Foodie) has reviews for every dish on a restaurant’s menu. It's a dish decider for when you're at a restaurant. We use ML to algorithmically generate ratings. So far, we have 380k ratings at 5k San Fran, Manhattan, and Chicago restaurants.

Hi guys, Vaibhav from Foodie here! We are a team from the University of Chicago and have been working on Foodie since March 2018. We are really proud of our product and, so far, have fully launched in San Francisco (but we take restaurant requests from anywhere)! If you have any questions or would like to reach out, I'm at vaibhav@thefoodieapp.com!

Seems pretty cool. I'd really like to see a map view of restaurants.
@morgannewman That's an awesome idea. I'll PM you if we ever cook up something like that on Foodie! We do have maps, but it's somewhat hidden in our app and has limited functionality.
Hey PH, Richard from Foodie here. I have never once gotten to the cash register and known what to order. Foodie helps me decide what to choose (like a nifty "dish decider"). Thanks for checking us out, and I hope Foodie can be useful for you, too! We have tons of restaurants in SF and Chicago, but NYC is coming soon. A couple of pro tips: - We have every boba spot in SF on the app -- do you agree with our rankings? - Filter button on the menu page is criminally underused. - Restaurant not on our app? "Tap to Request". Under the hood, we aggregate food reviews that mention dishes across the internet, from food delivery to personal blogs, and analyze them to rate dishes out of five stars. We'd LOVE to get your feedback! I'm at richard@thefoodieapp.com

I started using Foodie in SF after first moving. It’s basically replaced Yelp for me. I often find places on Infatuation and then pick dishes through Foodie. It was hard to go back to general restaurant reviews after getting meal-specific reviews.

Pros:

- Much more detailed than yelp for food - Has food guides from different websites - App gets updated frequently

Cons:

Can’t think of any. I’m excited for other cities to be added (NYC!) Would be useful when traveling.

Congrats on the launch! Been amazing to see the team and product grow 🔥Foodie has been one of my default way to pick whats best on the menu.
@bouazizalex Really appreciate it Alex! Thanks for being there since Day 1.
