Our History

The DiningGuide service has a long, distinguished history as one of the world's pioneering interactive dining directories. Beginning in 1992, DiningGuide's founder, Mark Metz, started with a vision of a comprehensive, digital restaurant listing service for both residents and the traveling public. The publication was called DiningGuide, and it first went live on a series of public touch screen kiosks (called TouchGuide®) in South Florida in 1993.

In 1994, the DiningGuide publication was first distributed on the 861-MIAMI fax on demand service. Over the years, many dining-oriented Internet sites have come and gone, but the DiningGuide service has been a mainstay on the Internet since it first went live on the Web in 1995. Unlike so many others, we've been around for awhile, and you can depend on us to be there for you in the years to come.
