Eats Media is a company that provides dining and restaurant information through a variety of different media vehicles. Their products include Eats.com, Eats Magazine, College Eats and EatsTV.  Eats Media Group was founded in 2002 by CEO Joe Ariel and Derek Beckmann. 
Eats.com was officially launced on April 1, 2008. It is partly a social networking site and partly a restaurant portal that allows users to search for and review restaurants from around the country. Users can search by type of cuisine, neighborhood, or city. There is also a feature that allows users to search by restaurant features, such as late-night dining, kid friendly, pet friendly, and more. Kind of like a "Facebook for foodies" mixed with a Yelp or a Citysearch, users can create a profile, add friends, list favorite restaurants, upload pictures and write messages to other users. Membership is free. Users must create an account to review a restaurant, but not to read other reviews. There is also a Foodie News column, featuring breaking culinary news, and an "Ask the Editors" feature so that users can get their culinary questions answered.
There is also an Eats.com Facebook application that allows users to access their eats info from their Facebook account.
Eats Magazine is published on a rolling basis throughout the year in different neighborhoods in New York City, Washington, DC and Miami. The magazine lists menus from various restaurants, including a range of fine dining and casual dining places in specific neighborhoods. The magazines also contains feature-length articles on a variety of food topics.
