“How Do I Find a Good Place to Eat around Here?”


On vacation, the last thing you expect is to cook for yourself. But how do you find somewhere decent to eat in a new city?

To start, ask the staff at your hotel for recommendations. Depending on their affiliations, they might comp or discount your meal. Similarly, hang out in the lobby and speak with other guests who’ve dined already. If neither works, fear not—there’s always an app.

Apps and Websites

If you travel with your smartphone or tablet, the apps below can guide you towards the best places to eat. Most of these services also offer websites with wider functionality.
