We have all been there. Picking a restaurant can sometimes be a daunting task. Even with Yelp, it is never easy. The endless variables, from cuisine, price, and location to rating and hours, can be overwhelming.

We would like for you to build a web application using Yelp's Fusion API that will help users pick a restaurant or an experience. You decide what questions to ask the user, how to present the data, and how to make recommendations. Let your creativity flow.


Please create the following:

  1. Deployed web application - Website URL and the supporting Github repository.
  2. The application must use Yelp's Fusion API. You can use other public APIs as required.

Bonus Points:

Score additional points for creative enhancements like these:

- You can display trends and stats about popular cuisines, quality cuisines, etc.

- Create a chat bot

- Obtain and use the user’s location via HTML5 Geolocation

- Plot merchants on a map

- Interactive user interface

- Or something else!


Your application will be judged based on usefulness, efficiency, creativity, clarity, and style.

    Submissions will be graded on the following criteria:
  • Meets Deliverables
  • Creativity
  • Clarity
Rewards will be handled by Capital One
