Dubbed as "Yelp meets Pandora," the Hoppit API answers the ongoing question "Where should we eat tonight?" by giving you access to the restaurant data used by our award-winning applications, as seen on FOX, CBS, and Mashable. This includes the nation's largest repository of high-resolution restaurant photography and "Vibe" data, available for 20 U.S. cities. Filter restaurants, bars, and coffee shops by type of Vibe (e.g. Cozy, Hipster, Romantic) and scenario (e.g. with a Date, with a Colleague, with Children), as well as by price, cuisine (e.g. Italian), and meal (e.g. Brunch). Perfect for developers of travel, lifestyle, food, social, local applications who wish to surface the amazing content that Hoppit users interact with every second. Available for New York, Brooklyn, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, San Diego, Seattle, Portland, Houston, Dallas, Austin, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Miami, New Orleans, Las Vegas, and Denver.
Of the many APIs we published this week, nine were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those nine, which included the Liquid Helium APIs. Stremor, the heuristics startup behind the APIs, aims to create a summarization framework for long form content. By applying language indicators such as cause, conclusion, relevance, and emotion, Liquid Helium can make accurate decisions about decreasing form length.

That's what Hoppit is all about; finding restaurants by atmosphere. Hoppit's API provides access to this handy functionality.
