how do you research?

what resources do you draw upon to determine how to spend your dining dollars?

I check out Washingtonian, Tyler Cowen, Washington Post, Zagat and Chowhound. Is there a DC resource that I'm not taking into consideration?

      I think I'll bookmark those istes


    2. and sometimes just take a chance and a dive.

      it's called living off the land (urban-style).

      seriously, if all those together don't give you an idea (and I'd discount about half of the "reader reviews" unless they're recent and not over-cranky) well...

      1. I like Cowen's comprehensiveness, but he lacks taste, so his contribution is as valuable as the Yellow Pages.

        I'll add Yelp to your list. A lot of the reviews are bandwagon jumping, but some are critical, eg reviews for Kopitam.
