Instant addiction: Menupages

When I was researching my trip to New York, I used Menupages constantly. Now the handy site has expanded to L.A., and it already has listings for 3400 restaurants. No more hopelessly flailing around to find a restaurant's website, which can be strangely hard to Google. It's a comparison eater's dream, and hopefully they'll keep adding places so that it can be a truly comprehensive resource.

Wow!! Cool site! I always like to check out menus (and prices) before trying new places and it is kinda silly how hard it can be to find menus searching the web. This makes it so much easier!

It's pretty awesome to poke around and a convenient service, but keeping it up-to-date might be an issue. For ex., I can say with certainty that the Patina menu is not current.

True, but at least you can get an idea of the kind of food and the prices. I'm much more likely to go to a restaurant if I have an idea of what the menu's going to look like when I get there, and the pricing.

I love that this is available in L.A. now!

Great tip! Thanks. I'd love a way to navigate around the various Citysearch (et all) sites.

This is off topic but cast my vote to replace LA Times restaurant critic S. Irene Virbilia, with Pat Saperstein. Enjoyable writing, informed, interesting locations and discoveries, no stupid "how hot is Hollywood" reviews. And yes, I still miss Ruth Reichl... Just an idea...:-)

I was checking around Menupages today and I did notice that the menu for Cobras and Matadores was completely wrong. I think it is actually the menu from Boxer, which was in the C&M space years ago.

That makes me trust the site less. It's one thing if the menu is out of date, but that's REALLY out of date. But everything else I looked at seemed in order.

I second that motion!

As an addendum to my earlier comment re: the out of date menu for Cobras and Matadores--this has already been corrected, as an editor saw my post on another blog re: this issue. So, they definitely have an astute and alert staff trying to keep things up to date and correct. Good on them.

Menupages provide a lot of information about restaurents, so that we don`t have to go allover the world looking for restaurents,instead we just can browse the site and checkout all the restaurents.
