I just… ugh… Yelp drives me crazy.
I consider Yelp is conjunction good nor bad for the food industry. we find it useless. If you’re aggregating a miss of expertise, then when we block in “best sushi bar in Los Angeles,” Yelp doesn’t help me at all. So, if you are a outrageous food geek like me that really believes in peculiarity — not costly food, just quality. Above all other things — quality. If you’re into quality, Yelp is not for you.
What we do when I’m going to a new city is we demeanour up who the 4 or 5 better food writers are in that city and the 4 or 5 better chefs in that town. And then we go on to their Instagram and Twitter or Facebook timelines, and we just go back a couple weeks and we write down all the places that these people have been eating or holding pictures of. And we put a little check by it, and the places that have the many checks are the ones that we go to first.
If you adore Mario Batali, and really who doesn’t? Then, if you’re following him and you know you’re going to Rome, just go into his timeline and demeanour at all the places in Rome that he says to go. That’s what we did. Well, actually we didn’t. we actually called him and asked him. But we got zero special that wasn’t on his Twitter timeline. It’s just that he happens to be my friend.
Yelp. Yelp is, we meant Yelp’s not even good for looking up the restaurant’s phone series since you know on the site, they just wish you to review their reviews and demeanour at their ads. They don’t even actually wish to give you the information about the grill or the menu. we meant how f—ed up is that? we mean, we just… ugh… Yelp drives me crazy. But it drives me crazy. I’ll let you confirm if it drives you crazy.
