More Boring Ramblings About the Site
I truly believe that once you decide to 'go out' you don't want to spend 10 hours sifting through dozens of restaurant reviews. You know WHAT you want to eat.. OR, at least, you know WHERE you want to eat it. I have sorted these restaurant pages by cuisine type and geography. The Bars and Gourmet Market pages by Neighborhood and then Geographically within each 'Hood. Then... once you know where or what type of food.... you don't need 10 Million choices. I've done all the work for you. I have limited each cuisine type to a limited number of selection of choices to make your life easy.
