PickMyPlate is attempting to change the way people eat out. It's a food play-land for the eccentric. The concept is this:
When going out to eat, we always tend to get the thing that we got last time because we KNOW that one was good, and we're afraid to deviate and try something new that might not be as good. My friend Cronkhite and I remembered that when we worked in restaurants, we knew the menu and knew what was good, including things that weren't ON the menu. So, we went to dinner asked the waitress to bring us the thing that SHE was in in the mood for -- what she would be eating if she were going on break. We got some things that we never would have ordered, were slight deviations from standard menu items, but it were DELICIOUS. Thus was born PickMyPlate, at least as a concept.
PickMyPlate.com is a place for people who are willing to try new things to tell the world about their adventure. Come to PickMyPlate; tell us where you are and what you're eating; drop us a picture or two; when you're done, rate the pick, and share it with your friends.
There may be weird dishes; there may be mediocre dishes; there may even be bad dishes, but I can guarantee two things: 1) you will eat some things that you've never even considered that will knock your socks off; 2) PickMyPlate will change the way you eat out.
Basically, you go to the website, log in with Google (it will create a user if you don't have one yet). Then you just add a Pick to create a listing. That page will allow you to type in the restaurant, dish name, and your ratings. Then you click next to upload a picture (which isn't working...).
From there, you'd be able to share via twitter / facebook.
