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 libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
