Foursquare Now Lets You Search for Individual Menu Items


Finding your next delicious grilled cheese or spicy burrito just got a little bit easier.

Starting Monday you can search on Foursquare for individual menu items. Whether you’re looking for FroYo or fried chicken, you can search through Foursquare’s database of 500,000 restaurants to find that dish near you.

Foursquare is able to perform the searches through a partnership with Locu and SinglePlatform. Over 43 million menu items are currently searchable.

SinglePlatform allows restaurants to update menus instantly on the mobile app, web and even their Facebook page simultaneously. Since menu items are kept up to date by the restaurants themselves, so you won’t show up to get somewhere only to find your dream dish is no longer offered on the menu.

Another app, YP, uses SinglePlatform to offer similar functionality.


Foursquare is rolling out the enhanced search capabilities slowly starting Monday.
