From Silicon Alley Daily:

The Zagat Survey, which has provided travel, restaurant, and bar ratings and recommendations for major metropolitan areas for more than 20 years, has expanded its website.

For $14.95 a month, Zagat.com users can sign up for Zagat Wire, an e-mail bulletin with exclusive content. The newsletter will provide more expanded reviews and information on restaurants and nightlife, and it will also offer discounts on both outside merchants and Zagat's products.

The listings and information on Zagat Wire is all new; the content currently on Zagat.com will remain free as before. Also offered is the prospect of reviewing brand-new restaurants and businesses. This marks the first time Zagat has required users to pay for any of its services.
