I've written the "Gary bot", which runs on the www.reddit.com/r/vegan subreddit. He responds to common queries about veganism, so - for example - typing @Gary! Nutrition will return a list of websites talking about vegan nutrition.
That's a long-winded introduction to my real question. A common question on /r/vegan is: "I'm visiting x city, where can I eat?" I'm hoping to add functionality to Gary, so that you can type: @Gary! London and he responds with the best vegan restaurants in London. I can maintain the responses manually, but it would be helpful if I could script Gary to query an API on HappyCow to get the results.
That's a long-winded preamble to the actual question, which is: Is there currently an available API on HappyCow that I could use for this purpose?
Thanks for any help you can give.
All the best

Seems cool. We don't have an open api for something like at this time, but what if the response is a link to map results? Just use the city name like:
Would that work?
