MenuPages Expands To Queens
By Joe Marvilli
When it came to grabbing some grub in Queens, you used to have to either call restaurants or go to their website to find out details on their menus. Today though, it is easier than ever to look for a good meal.
MenuPages.com has extended its reach into Queens, supplying customers with online ratings, reviews and menus for more than 3,000 different eateries in the borough. The addition was made on Dec. 11, joining a group now totaling nearly 15,000 entries on the website for New York City alone. Menus from restaurants in Manhattan and Brooklyn are also available.
The change comes a little more than a year after MenuPages was bought by online food ordering service Seamless. As a result of the merger, customers can not only look at menus on the website, but they can also be directed to Seamless.com and type in their information to have their meals delivered to them.
Although MenuPages now lives under the same roof as Seamless, the website will remain separate from the corporate entity.
The Queens Economic Development Corporation saw the expansion as a victory on every level.
“This is a win-win-win situation. It’s good for Queens restaurants, patrons and the website,” Rob MacKay, QEDC’s director of public relations and an organizer of the borough’s annual Restaurant Week, said. “Experience has taught me that residents of other boroughs love our restaurants when they go, but they often don’t know about them. Since MenuPages is a trusted website with many followers, it will spread the word about the wonderful eating opportunities in Queens.”
Menupages.com is not just centered on New York City though. Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Francisco, South Florida and Washington D.C. are all open for foodies to peruse. If you are heading to London or Paris, the food website has a presence there as well.
