Google Explores Sale of Restaurant Reviewer Zagat

Alphabet’s Google is exploring a potential sale of Zagat, the U.S. restaurant review guide which the search giant bought for $151 million in 2011, people familiar with the matter said.

Zagat gradually became less of a priority as Google focused on drawing traffic to its Google+ social network.

Google has Held Informal Talks in recent months with multiple companies about offloading Zagat, the sources said, asking not to be named because the matter is private.

Founded in 1979 by Tim and Nina Zagat, the eponymous service became known for its familiar burgundy pocket-sized guides to restaurants in cities around the world.

Last June, Alphabet agreed to sell two robotics firms, Boston Dynamics and Tokyo-based Schaft to SoftBank.
