When dining out in a group, it is difficult to find and choose an establishment that satisfies the preferences and requirements of everyone in the group. This disclosure describes techniques that make it easier and more efficient to choose dining establishments by applying a selection algorithm to dietary preferences and requirements aggregated across individuals in a group. With permissions from individual members of the group, respective dietary preferences are obtained and aggregate criteria for the group are defined. Dining establishments that match the aggregated criteria are identified using one or more suitable approaches such as majority selection, constraint-based filtering, etc. The described techniques can be provided as a standalone application and/or be integrated within a calendar, digital map, search engine, or other application.
