This morning while "on assignment" for a client in the Land of Food Blogs I happened across a new application called DontEat.at. This clever little application cross references your Foursquare check-ins at New York City eating establishments with their corresponding inspection scores from the NYC Dept. of Health. If you should happen to check-in at a restaurant with an inspection score of "C" or worse you will receive a notification. Asks the website, "Do you really want to eat at a place like that?"
DontEat.at was coded by Max Stoller as part of the NYC BigApps competition. Max says he plans to expand the service beyond NYC in the future.
I really like the layer of utility DontEat.at adds to Foursquare. In addition to more adding more cities, I'd love to see the ability to connect DontEat.at with both Gowalla and SCVNGR so as to make the service available to people regardless of their location-based app affiliation. Or, Max could just sell his app to Foursquare and pay off his student loans. Either way it's a win for Max, so I say well done, sir!
