From our Posting Etiquette, which you will find here: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/367605
If you're looking for chow tips, first take a look through our regional message boards. You'll find tens of thousands of useful postings, including literally hundreds of replies to oft-repeated questions such as "Where are the best ribs in the South?", "Where can I eat near Lincoln Center?"...and the ever-popular matter of Brunch.
Please do search through previous discussion to catch the previous tips on a given topic, but it's always okay to start new discussions about previously-covered topics. New posters may have fresh tips to offer, and restaurants may have recently closed or declined. By constantly revisiting topics, we keep our info fresh. Avid regulars may find repetition tedious, but the food scene's dynamic, and we aim to track it in real time!
When you post a query, you'll get better answers by being as specific as possible. "Coming from out of town, where should we eat?" is too broad to draw many helpful responses. "Where's a good place to eat lunch with kids in the Theater District?" or "What are my best sushi bets around 30th and 3rd?" are the types of questions most likely to draw good response. If you're posting on a statewide or regional board, please remember to include the city you're interested in - preferably somewhere in the title of your post.
