Where to eat? That’s the question. It’s a question that’s even more complicated when you’re trying to satisfy the tastes of a group. Review sites like Yelp or Google are no help. They’re weighted down by competing interests, evil business models and a need to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

That’s where PlateRate comes in. PlateRate is a review platform dedicated to food. In this episode of The Foodcast, we learn about how PlateRate works and why you should be using it.
