Uber Just Released Its First Restaurant Guide Based on Rider Destinations

Uber has released a guide to the most popular restaurants in the city based on rider pick-ups and drop-offs

The data is likely skewed toward upper-middle-class 20-somethings.

Forget Zagat and Michelin: This is the restaurant guide you’re looking for. Uber has released a restaurant ranking for 12 cities from San Francisco to New York City based on user drop-offs and pick-ups. Breaking it down by categories like local favorites, up and coming, brunch spots, and all-around “most popular,” the results of data crunching have been unorthodox to the say the least.

For instance, the most popular restaurant in New York City is Vandal — a veritable trendy nightlife hotspot that hasn’t been seen on many media restaurant hit lists. In San Francisco the most popular restaurant is Southern Pacific Brewing, a brewery with pub grub, and Miami’s popular spot is American Social, a waterfront cocktail bar and dining room.Perhaps to no one’s surprise, the most popular restaurants with Uber riders are bar and nightlife-centric.

The most popular restaurants in the rest of the Uber cities include Park Tavern in Atlanta, Legal Harborside Floor 2 in Boston, Parlor Pizza Bar in Chicago, The Rustic in Dallas, ViewHouse Eatery Bar & Rooftop in Denver, Perch in Los Angeles, Acme Feed & Seed in Nashville, Sandbar Mexican Grill in Phoenix, and Sienna Mercato in Pittsburgh.
