In the heart of Chicago, where the culinary landscape is as diverse as its skyline, a new contender enters the arena. HUE, the personalized food recommendation social network app, has set its sights on captivating the palates of both Gen Z and Millennials, promising to be more than just an app but your trusted companion in your culinary journey.

Jean-Baptiste Dominguez, the visionary Co-founder & CEO of HUE, intimately understands the daily struggle of finding the perfect spot to dine. “Current apps often miss the mark when it comes to recommendations tailored to individual taste” notes Jean-Baptiste. “Friend-recommended apps tried, but I love most of my friends for who they’re, not their taste.”

Previously Co-Founder of Clash App, a Los Angeles-based short-form video app amassing 6.5 million users post-launch and $9 million in funding, Jean-Baptiste joined forces with Noriko Shindo, an ex-Amazonian with an MBA from INSEAD. Together, they started ideating HUE in September 2023, introducing a new era of culinary exploration in Chicago.


HUE isn’t just an app; it’s a trusted companion designed to cater to the diverse tastes of everyone. Through its proprietary algorithm, HUE visually translates individual taste preferences into a dynamic HUE (a unique color), offering highly personalized recommendations that evolve over time to match the dynamic food scene of the user.

Discover restaurant recommendations curated specifically for your evolving HUE, explore places endorsed by friends, and engage with curated lists from members who share similar HUEs. In the world of HUE, closer HUEs translate to closer taste preferences—an innovative approach perfectly aligned with Chicago’s love for personalized experiences.

Bid farewell to generic recommendations and let HUE be your personalized culinary guide through the diverse and delectable flavors of Chicago. Discover your HUE and embark on a unique taste journey crafted just for you!
