As wired New Yorkers, we demand immediate access to information. In the case of restaurant delivery, that means quick access to all local menu options without having to shuffle through a messy stack of duplicate and out of date menus. Even worse is when the perfect menu just isn’t anywhere in sight.
Frequently, it seems restaurants don’t go to the effort of making their delivery menus available online. MenuPages and FreeWilliamsburg do a great job of covering this failing in Manhattan and Williamsburg, respectively, but there’s always ones which will be missed. Here’s where Williamsburger can help fill in the gaps.
I’ve begun scanning in a few menus I’ve acquired which don’t appear to be anywhere else online, built pages to display them, and then integrated links to those pages into the Williamsburger Maps project. There’s also a little bit of integration the other way around; rather than handcoding address / phone info into the menu pages themselves, they’re pulling data out of the maps database and displaying from there.
