Yelp Launches Special Search Filter for Vegetarians

The online business directory has created Yelpy Insights to point users to veg-approved eateries.


This week, user-reviewed business directory Yelp is premiering a new search filter designed to help vegans and vegetarians find veg-friendly dining options in their city. The feature, called Yelpy Insights, is a response to vegetarian users who said they had a hard time locating restaurants with good meat-free options. Rather than requiring users to sift through pages of potentially irrelevant or too-limited search results, the new feature tips users off to places that, while not necessarily exclusively veg, are “Liked by Vegetarians”—a category determined by analyzing millions of user-generated reviews. Yelpy Insights is currently in its testing phase, but the San Francisco-based company expects to expand the feature to include more categories later this year.
