Advice and answers from the Restaurantology Team

Restaurantology categories currently comprise over 250 tags that help define what any given restaurant can be known for, spanning across 4 key category groupings:

  • Type of establishment – bar, café, steakhouse, buffet
  • Style of food preparation – gluten-free, vegan, kosher
  • Cuisine – American (new), Tex-Mex, Japanese, Italian
  • Food offered – Burgers, pretzels, coffee, ice cream

Unit-level categories are aggregated to their corresponding Concepts and/or Companies, prioritized by frequency and ranked by importance, and then processed by an algorithm to calculate the hypothesized service type for any Restaurantology profile.
