One World Explorer iPad Adds Interactive Restaurant Guide for New Yorkers with Latest App Update

A guide to ten off-the-beaten-path restaurants, elected by Food Network celebrity, David Rosengarten, has been added to the One World Explorer Guide to New York

Ask anyone what he or she loves the most about New York City, and you’ll likely get the reply—The Food! Food is a staple to every visitor and local alike in the Big Apple, and the One World Explorer app is now offering a mouth-watering glimpse into the Top 10 hidden but delicious restaurants across Manhattan.

Now visitors to the observatory can get a video guide of the best restaurants, according to celebrity food critic, David Rosengarten, who you might recognize from the Food Network.

Wolff Advertising filmed the video series in conjunction with One World Explorer Productions in order to create the feeling that you’re on an adventure with David Rosengarten. They traveled across Manhattan to capture all the hidden gems that the New York restaurant scene has to offer.

From German cuisine, to Neapolitan pizza, to Dim Sum, the new Restaurant Guide Channel on the Explorer app will take you on an international food tour, all without leaving Manhattan.

Haneke Design developed the new channel for the Explorer iPad to complement the existing technology. The updates include an interactive restaurant guide map with 10 brand new video tours of David Rosengarten’s favorite eateries – ones that even the most foodie New Yorkers might not have known.

The new update is the latest to the OWE app first designed and developed by Haneke in 2015. The iPad experience is only available to visitors at the One World Observatory and provides an immersive discovery into the New York City skyline. When a visitor uses the Explorer iPad on the 100th floor of the One World Observatory, they are able to get a much clearer vision of all the building and sites that you see from the observatory. 

A 360-degree view from the top of the building pops up on the iPad’s screen that is populated with an abundance of Points of Interest Pins. Once you make your selection, the visitor is virtually transported to the location across the city with incredible fly-over footage filmed from helicopters. Once you arrive at the location on the app, you get a short video tour with narration to teach you about the site.

“Creating new and exciting ways for visitors to explore New York City is our goal with the iPad Explorer App,” said Joel Baumwoll, CEO of One World Explorer Productions New York. “Food is the international language and represents some of the best qualities that New York has to offer. Using engaging videos and providing memorable experiences for the visitors remains our top priority, and we believe the Restaurant Guide embodies that to a T.”

You will want to head straight out to eat after watching these mouth-watering videos where David Rosengarten will show you exactly what to order at each restaurant. Check out the latest updates to the Explorer iPad the next time you visit the 102nd floor of the One World Building in New York City.
