This new interactive map lets you support women-led restaurants–in Harlem and beyond


Still haven't done your part to celebrate Women's History Month (which, as a reminder, ends tomorrow)? Here's an easy one: dine or order in from a woman-led restaurant.

Grubhub has made it super easy with a new initiative called RestaurantHER that works in a few ways. To start with, for every person who pledges to eat at or order from a woman-led restaurant in March, the online ordering giant is contributing $1 (up to $1 million) to support restaurants run by women and similar social causes.

Besides voicing your support this month, you can also use RestaurantHER's fun map to follow through and find a woman-led eatery near you. Simply type in your zip code to search for a place you can patronize with a visit or an online order.

What's more, if you know of a restaurant that qualifies as women-led–it has to be owned or co-owned by a woman, have a woman head chef, or both–and don't see it on the map, you can submit it yourself.

A quick peek reveals that The Edge Harlem, the popular Jamaican-British eatery owned by two sisters on Edgecombe Avenue, still hasn't made it onto the map. Notice any other gaping omissions? Make sure to chime in!
