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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
