NEW YORK, June 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Tasting Table, the award-winning digital epicurean media brand, announced the acquisition of restaurant discovery app Flavour (http://getflavour.com). The acquisition of the fast-growing New York-based app company will enable Tasting Table to provide personalized, curated restaurant recommendations in eight markets to its growing community of 3+ million food enthusiasts.

Launched in 2014 with backing from Scripps Networks Interactive and Aspect Ventures, the Flavour app exploded onto the culinary scene with its elegant design and innovative algorithm for vetting restaurants. Heralded by The New York Times as "powerful" and "eye-catching," Flavour aggregates reviews from top critics, essential local publications and informed industry experts, mining social graph data to distill the most noteworthy restaurants in top food cities. 

"Since its launch seven years ago, Tasting Table has remained committed to making it possible for anyone, anywhere to participate in the national food scene — through our restaurant and bar coverage, chef's recipes, original video series and more," Tasting Table co-founder and CEO Geoff Bartakovics said. "When we saw the Flavour app, we immediately knew this simple but powerful tool — and the passionate team behind it — could come together with Tasting Table to make it even easier for busy food lovers to stay connected to the fast-moving restaurant world. We're excited to collaborate with Flavour's team of ace developers, engineers and designers to expand the app's utility and deliver an even richer experience for our hungry readers."

With the acquisition, Tasting Table will continue to grow its dominance among epicurean publishers by adding thousands of curated local recommendations to its already-robust national restaurant coverage. The company expects to release several new features within the app this fall.
