Never miss a “must-try” with Google Search

Picture this: you’re in New York City for 24 hours. Making the most of your visit may seem daunting, but the latest Google tools are here to help. Starting today in the U.S., when you search on your Google app for the best spots to eat and drink, you’ll have access to reviews from top critics and best-of lists from reputable publishers.

If you’re craving dim sum, but not sure which place is a top spot, a search for “chinese restaurant” may bring up Michelin favorite RedFarm in the West Village. Looking further at the search result, you’ll see it also appears on more than 10 best-of lists, including Eater, CBS Local and Refinery29.

Next on the to-do list: dessert. After seeing a sweet review from Zagat, head to Lafayette Grand Café & Bakery for a classic Parisian pastry. Serious Eats heralds it as one of “The Best French Bakeries in NYC” and is also on Eater’s list of “15 Destinations of Holiday Sweets in NYC.”

Pro tip for you to-the-minute planners: If you’re looking for the perfect afternoon activity before meeting friends for dinner, for selected places Google shows how long people typically stay at a given location. Got a few minutes? The High Line is a must-see. Got a few more? Central Park is worth the journey uptown.

Whether you’re stopping by in a city for a weekend or just looking for a new local watering hole, we hope these latest tools from Google will hit the spot.
