dishtip Takes Semantic Web To Next Level
Powerful 3.0 Mashup Performs Deep Analysis on Millions of Reviews to Find Top Dishes Across USA

SAN FRANCISCO, May 23, 2011 -- dishtip, the premier site allowing users to search for specific food dishes, in order to discover the top dishes and corresponding restaurants, is now displaying the top 100 dishes across the entire USA – information that does not exist on any other website. Using an intelligent web 3.0, semantic-focused mashup, dishtip performs a deep analysis of millions of web based-reviews, photos and content to provide suggestions for the best dishes, offer related search items, as well as filter by such categories as food taste, price and cuisine.

Applying unique quantitative and qualitative computations, dishtip.com delivers relevant results at both the street level, by filtering results within one block of a desired location, as well as the macro level, by analyzing data across an entire country or region. By widening the search area for a given dish, a user can see how well a particular food item ranks when compared to other dishes across the nation.

“It is exciting to harness the power of the web and perform deep layers of semantic analysis to reveal detailed and relevant information based on millions of sources” said David Schorr, Founder of the dishtip.com website. “What’s powerful about the top 100 list is if I find a dish in my city that is also ranked highly compared to all dishes across the country, you bet I am going to give it a try.”

Within the Top 100 search results, users have an abundance of additional filtering choices. For example, users can easily refine their search to only display results such as vegetarian dishes, frozen desserts, side dishes and more. Additional filters are included for restaurant type and price category. In essence, whether searching within your city or the entire country, users can refine the results to a level of granularity that does not exist on any other website.

The top 100 dishes across the USA contain a wide variety of food types. Examples include:

  • Salted Caramel Ice Cream from Bi-Rite Creamery in San Francisco, CA
  • Lobster Rolls from Neptune Oyster in Boston, MA
  • Blueberry Pancakes from Clinton Street Baking Co. in New York, NY
  • Baby Back Ribs from Phil’s BBQ in San Diego, CA
  • Foie Gras Dog from Hot Doug’s in Chicago, IL
  • Pastrami Sandwich from Langer’s Delicatessen in Los Angeles, CA

By creating a personal dish listing, users can then jump right to their own personal profile page to figure out what to eat and where.
