The service from New York Public Library provides access to data extracted from a collection of restaurant menus. NYPL accumulated the menus as documentation of city life over time, showing the meals enjoyed by diners in the many restaurants in the city and beyond along with the language proprietors have used to describe their fare. Data come from crowdsourced dish-by-dish transcriptions of menus in the collection.
API methods support access and analysis of individual dish descriptions based on search by the names of menu items as well as keywords mentioned in descriptions. Methods also report the restaurant serving the dish, its location, the price in U.S. dollars, and other descriptive data.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically,
once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change.
As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset,
we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all
activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb.
If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way,
the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
So far, we don't have a record of any changes to this API
