Zagat Adds Dining Deals and Food Porn to Its Digital Domain


Zagat is following Yelp and OpenTable into the dining-discount game. Mashable reports that Zagat Exclusives (powered by DealOn) will launch in September in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and it’ll put a twist on the Groupon model: “The price point will decrease as more people purchase the deal during the allotted window. The lowest price at the end of the sale is the price each buyer will pay.” Zagat also issued a press release today announcing that it’s teaming up with Foodspotting to incorporate photos of menu items into its listings. Zagat Badges will be available to Foodspotting users in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco.
