Restaurant City Lets You Be Boss


By Cari Martens

Anyone who enjoys fine food, snappy cocktails, and exploring restaurants, farmers
markets and street food may want to pay a visit to the fantasy world of RESTAURANT CITY.

Restaurant City (made by Playfish) is an online social game where you can open your own restaurant and enjoy the trials and tribulations of dealing with menus, guests and overflowing restrooms, all the while employing your friends as waiters and chefs.

It’s one of the top 10 most popular games on Facebook with over 10 million people having installed it so far in the past three months…that means 10 million virtual restaurants have opened in the last quarter. One’s not lacking for choice of eateries in this simulated world. You can try it out directly on Facebook. Or, if you don’t have a Facebook account, you can see Restaurant City here.

With a wealth of different décor options, furniture and equipment to choose from, virtual restaurateurs can make their mark with a completely unique restaurant. You can visit your friends’ restaurants, too, and even trade ingredients with them to help you create a menu.

It took only 3 months for 10 million restaurants to be created in Restaurant City, whereas it took McDonald’s 55 years to open 32,000 restaurants. Just saying.

If you’re a foodie, you might want to give Restaurant City a whirl.
