This App Is the Best Way to Prevent Food FOMO
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.
