Restaurant recommendation Applet

  • Looking for a great restaurant this weekend? We have you covered.

    This Applet, built by one of our creative IFTTT engineers, gives you the ability to get a restaurant or bar recommendation with the push of a button. Inspired by our popular “I don’t care where we go for dinner" button, they chose to upgrade this Applet with additional filter code and a second action so that you can get an email with more information about the location.

  • To use this Applet you will need to download the IFTTT app on iOS or Android.

    Make it your own

    The published Applet is set for Chicago, but Pro+ users can convert the Applet and modify the query to any city (you can trial Pro+ today and try it yourself this weekend). To convert the Applet, click to connect the Applet and then select the Settings button. From there, you will be able to view and modify the various elements of the Applet itself.


    You can also replace the Term field in the Query to be “Bar”, “Cafe”, or “Food” to generate a more specific kind of recommendation.


  • Complete Applet details

    The filter code within this Applet searches the Yelp business directory and only returns results for businesses with a 4.5 star rating or higher. From there, the information from Yelp is sent via Notification with the business name. The second action sends you a more detailed email that includes additional information about the business itself.

    Let us know

    If you use this Applet, let us know what business it recommends and tell us if you enjoyed the meal! You can reach us on Twitter @IFTTT.
