Jan. 18, 2012 - PRLog -- NEW YORK –(January 18, 2012)– DishEnvy, a service the lets you easily discover and share the best dishes at restaurants, is excited to announce the launch of its website and mobile web app at The company’s mission is to change the way you dine out by allowing you to find great dishes before choosing a restaurant. DishEnvy allows users to search by dish to easily satisfy a craving for something specific, know what’s best at a given restaurant or find dishes that others say are “life changing.”  

“DishEnvy embraces how the new generation of foodies wants to approach dining out – by putting the importance of eating amazing dishes first, ahead of other factors such as decor and service” says Founder Jay Zygmunt.  “For anyone looking for great food, it’s just a more logical starting point. Do you really just want Italian food or are you looking for a phenomenal pasta dish? It’s so much easier to start with the dish and discover a few restaurants you may want to try than the other way around.”

DishEnvy provides an online community that enables food lovers to share ratings of dishes at restaurants to discover great food near them. The service allows food lovers to:

•   Search by dish, ingredient or type of food to find the best of whatever they are craving in the area of their choosing, look at the favorite dishes of their friends or those they follow for inspiration, or discover what’s good at a given restaurant.
•   Be the critic (and earn titles such as “Master Critic”) and share their thoughts on everything they eat by rating it using a scale ranging from “not enviable” to “life changing.” This rating system is meant to emulate those used by top critics and makes it easy to differentiate the great dishes from the very good in a way other crowd-sourced site do not.
•   Build a network of “food soulmates” whose taste matches their own so they can discover new dishes they know they’ll love. Users can choose to see reviews from only those in their network on any search.
•   Quickly see the best dishes nearby on any web-enabled mobile device for when they’re hungry on the go.
•   Promote their food blog by providing a “Food Blogger” icon to anyone with a blog. The icon links to their blog and allows users to more easily determine if they want to follow them.  
•   Keep a journal of everything they eat so they can effortlessly remember great meals  later on and share them with friends.
•   View “Best Of” lists to discover great dishes chosen by experts at publications such as New York Magazine, The Village Voice and Serious Eats.

DishEnvy’s focus on the dish will also benefit restaurant managers as well by:
•   Allowing them to promote signature dishes that may be better reviewed than the restaurant as a whole.
•   Providing accurate feedback on which dishes diners love and which are not well received. This can be used in planning menu changes or determining which dishes to promote.
•   Helping sell unfamiliar or unusual-sounding menu items that diners may be hesitant to order without a recommendation
•   Allowing potential diners to focus on the food when looking at online reviews, mitigating the impact of overall reviews on broader review sites where diners often go to complain about one-time service issues


DishEnvy was founded by Jay Zygmunt after he realized that while other factors are important, the epitome of a great dining experience is eating something exceptional.  “A friend told me that the burrata pizza at a restaurant in my neighborhood was ‘life changing’ and I had an epiphany” says Zygmunt. “I realized that dish recommendations are more powerful than restaurant recommendations. When someone tells you about a great dish, you can imagine the experience right then and there and begin salivating. That’s how you should determine where to eat.” DishEnvy was born so that great dishes could be recorded and easily be discovered by others.
