We've all been there: You finally nab a reservation at that impossible-to-get-into-restaurant and order something you think you'll like, but when it arrives, you realize that you've made a terrible mistake. You suddenly break into a sweat—your date's dish looks far more appetizing—and briefly consider amending your initial request before you resign to your lackluster meal, defeated and unsatisfied. Enter Wine 'n Dine. The brand-new iOS app, launching today, curates user-generated images of the best dishes at restaurants around the world, so you'll never risk suffering from food FOMO again.
The way it works is simple: Once you create an account, Wine 'n Dine will request your location so it can tailor all recommendations to your immediate vicinity. After you log in, you'll be directed to a feed that's auto-populated with #foodporn-worthy photos taken by the app's most trusted users and influencers—including Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Kourtney Kardashian—where you have the option to either like, comment, or save a dish to "Wanna Try," a culinary to-do list embedded within your profile that you can reference later.
Arguably the app's greatest feature, though, is that it tells you the best thing to order when you search for a particular restaurant, whether it's the mafaldine at chef Missy Robbins's Brooklyn Italian spot Lilia or the sea bass at Yotam Ottolenghi's buzzy London eatery Nopi. "People come to Wine 'n Dine to find out what to eat," co-founder Joshua Stern tells InStyle. So next time you're out to dinner, whip out your phone (discreetly, of course) before your waiter comes over, then breathe a sigh of relief when your delicious-looking plate hits the table—and take a photo, of course.
