Stang and his The Infatuation co-founder Andrew Steinthal are two former music industry executives founded the company as a way to recommend restaurants and bars to their friends. At the same time, the company plans help it with a "tech-drive platform" that will provide a "more meaningful alternative" to crowdsource review sites like Yelp.

"We relate to audiences in a way that other entities aren't", Stang said. "Their innovative approach, and their passion for helping people discover great restaurants and for building community line up with what we built with Zagat from the very beginning".

Zagat will remain a separate platform, working in tandem with The Information, according to the company.
