About Eater

Launched in July of 2005, Eater provides extensive coverage of the New York restaurant, nightlife and bar scene. From the newest temples of haute cuisine to the oldest bars in Brooklyn, Eater has you covered with original reporting; user-generated tips, rants and raves; and a curated round-up of what the rest of the restaurant and food media are talking about. Updated a dozen times a day or more, if it's not on Eater, you don't have to know about it.

Eater is the flagship of the Eater sites, which also include Eater SF and Eater LA, and part of the Curbed Network, a collection of neighborhood blogs in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Eater relies on emails from readers, whose correspondence forms the lifeblood of the site. Anonymity will be assumed and protected.

Nothing makes us happier than publishing an amazing photo, or camera phone snap, taken by one of our readers.
