Find a Restaurant

You’ve got a work trip coming up—a new city you’ve never been in. Skip the chain restaurants. A quick search right from the home screen will help you locate the specific thing you’re looking for, check out what’s popular, or see all nearby establishments.

For more advanced search options, use the search tool in the navigation.

Make a List

Have some favorite, local spots you love? That’s a fantastic place to start with your first list. Then, share your list with friends and family. As you discover more great places, make more lists.

Behind the scenes, the lists you—and your connections—create, will come to influence the restaurants, bars, and coffee shops that show up for you in CurEat’s search.


Lists are easy to make in CurEat. Location-based lists are a perfect way to get started. Where do you like to eat back home? How about lunch at work? While the lists are fantastic for you, they get even better when you share them. ​


Sharing with your friends and family supports the independent restaurants you already love. Have a list of the best burgers in Durham? The best seafood in Charleston? Your favorite cocktail places in D.C.? Send lists to folks you think would enjoy them.


If someone shared a list—or you find one from a CurEater—pin it, so it’s easy to find the next time you want to refer to it.

Upload Photos

Don’t let photos of amazing food or beautiful restaurant interiors just sit on your camera roll. Share them with the community and influence others to be curious eaters, too.

It’s easy: Tap the plus button in the navigation and upload your photo. You can even link your photo to a restaurant, if you like. And don’t forget to add a description to let others know what’s great about it!

We can’t wait to see the photos you share. Stay tuned for future photo contests!

Connect with the Community


CurEaters are prominent chefs, restaurateurs, bartenders, creatives and artisan craft makers. These folks are always thinking, observing, or producing the sort of unique experiences CurEat is about discovering. Count on them to be connected to the best independent spots in their communities and great inspiration.

The verified badge indicates how many of your favorite CurEaters have a certain restaurant on their list. To find out which CurEaters are listing them, select the restaurant’s profile photo and tap the badge.


Curious to know which of your friends have a specific restaurant on their list? It works the same way as CurEaters: tap the restaurant’s profile photo and then the friend symbol. It’s that easy!
