Menupages Unveils New Design

I really like this site. I’ve been using it for years. The old site was ugly and hard to navigate, but served its purpose. When a restaurant’s own web site didn’t have an updated menu, or didn’t list prices, I would head on over to MenuPages. With over 4000 online menus, they almost always had what I was looking for.

They’ve re-launched with a web 2.0 friendly interface, easier navigation with listings by cuisine, area, and neighborhood. Click on mid Wilshire, then refine your search by cuisine, meal and feature. You can also easily map the results. Restaurant ratings, always ubiquitous, are no different here. Meaning, take them with a grain of salt. Do you research on Yelp and Urbanspoon before choosing your final dining destination.

Once on a restaurant page, explore the on screen menu or download a print version. You can map out the restaurant, or click the link for public transportation directions via Hop Stop. (This function is not currently working properly, hopefully they will fix it soon.) Similar matches are also displayed along the left side. It’s a wonderful improvement to an already good site.

    Definitely an improvement over the previous layout — though I still wish they’re more in tune with L.A. and include more ethnic places. Thankfully there are other sites like menuism, urbanspoon, sporq, etc. to fall back on.
