Google sells Zagat

Per Techcrunch, Google is selling the Zagat business.

In 2011 Google bought Zagat for US$151 million. Now it is selling the business to The Infatuation.

Prior to the internet Zagat was a leader as crowd-sourced restaurant guide. At least in NYC it was a must have.

Now it faces tough competition from websites like Yelp and Tridadvisor. And Google itself competes with Google Maps.
