    You know the trusted friends you turn to when you need a restaurant suggestion? That’s us. We aren’t “professional” food critics, meaning you won’t hear any pretentious foodie speak from us. We also aren’t restaurant industry insiders, nor do we accept invites, comped meals, or solicited reservations. Ever.

    What we are is a website and mobile app started in 2009 (then as Immaculate Infatuation) by two people who wanted to help their friends find not only great restaurants, but the right restaurant to suit their needs, no matter what the occasion. That’s still what The Infatuation is built on today. We strive to make the reviews that we write both entertaining and useful, so that you can find a restaurant that’s “Perfect For” whatever you need.

    Then, in March 2018, The Infatuation acquired Zagat. Zagat will relaunch at the end of 2020 as a UGC platform built on community and trust. The Infatuation will continue to provide reliable (and hilarious) restaurant reviews from our editorial team. Together, these two brands will make the best restaurant discovery tool in the world. We hope you'll join us in building it.
