The nychealthratings.com bookmarklet was created as our entry into the NYC Bigapps 2.0 Contest. Initially we felt it would be best to integrate this important data into the websites people already use. To accomplish this we created a javascript bookmarklet that integrates with the restaurant landing pages of yelp.com, citysearch.com, menupages.com and opentable.com
