Eats was founded in Murray Hill, NYC as a black and white neighborhood restaurant guide. Their website remained in beta form for over a year, before it was officially launched in April 2008.[3]

Products was officially launced on April 1, 2008.[4] 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.[5][6] 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"[7] mixed with a Yelp or a Citysearch,[8] users can create a profile, add friends, list favorite restaurants, upload pictures and write messages to other users.[9] Membership is free. Users must create an account to review a restaurant, but not to read other reviews.[10] 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.[11]

The Eats launch party was held at Marquee in New York City on April 3, 2008, with proceeds benefiting City Harvest.[12] Fashion designer Marc Jacobs was one of the celebrity guests.[13]

There is also an Facebook application that allows users to access their eats info from their Facebook account.[14]
