NEW IPHONE APP LETS DINERS LOCATE "A" RESTAURANTS FROM THE STREET CORNER
March 6, 2012-Beginning today, New Yorkers can check a restaurant’s letter grade from any street corner throughout the City using ABCEats NYC, a free iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch application that offers easy access to restaurant inspection grades and detailed inspection reports for each of the City's 24,000 restaurants. New Yorkers can find a restaurant’s latest inspection results by entering the name of a restaurant, searching by borough, or using their current location to find restaurants with “A,” “B,” “C,” or Grade Pending grades in close proximity. Global positioning system (GPS) technology on iPhones works with the City’s letter grading database to show letter grades of nearby restaurants. Information is updated daily.
To download the free ABCEats NYC application, those with Apple mobile phones or devices can search for ‘NYC Restaurant Grading’ in the iPhone App Store on their device. The app is available for iPhone and iPod users and will be available for Android users by this summer. For more information on the 18-month report on restaurant grading please search “Restaurant Grading at 18 Months” on NYC.gov.
