Was wondering what opinions were on different website references. I use info links such as Eater.com, Zagats, NY Mag, Timeout.

Anyone know any other good ones that keep you updated on restaurants openings, closings, etc?

    I am a big fan of citysearch.com
    You can ask for anything you are looking for, whether it's dessert or brunch, or trendy lounges and they give you an extensive list with user reviews.

      Ditto on Citysearch.com....great site, you can't beat the user reviews, you can map anything listed and there are also lists of THE BEST in a variety of categories.

        I used to use Citysearch, but they have no sort of critical backbone. I've been to so many places they've recommended to find out that the restaurant, bar, hall was NOTHING like what Citysearch described. I've been to seriously empty places they've described as "a hip, downtown eatery where the fashionistas linger." The user reviews are little better. I much more prefer menupages.com or NYMag.

      You might also try menupages.com.

        And I forgot to mention how much I love URBANSPOON. It's one of my favorites.
